Southwest Atlanta suburbs is booming. Atlanta is booming as well. There's a ton of folks from Michigan there so you should feel right at home. In fact I think half the state relocated there and out west. lol Honestly your best bet is to go see the area for yourself. There's no substitute for living, breathing, and seeing the situation that you plan on being in for a long time.

You start by finding a job. Then you can move on to where to live. Saying Live in X town/area is useless if your job is 200 miles away in town Y.

You also need to give a better idea of what you are looking for, Everyone wants greats school, in a affordable area. But what is affordable to us, might not be affordable to you.

Gwinnett Co. is a great area if your are looking foe schools and great areas to live. Located NE of Atlanta it is one of the best places in the metro area. They have 3 of the top ten schools in the nation there and 5 in the top 15 schools in the nation.

Their parks and recreation system is a model for the rest of the nation, These parks feed the local school systems here and they produce some of the best athletes.

It depends on what you do. ATL is now more of a Tech social capitol than anything.

The price is about the same is Michigan, little more, because Michigan filed for Bankruptcy and it was always about the same price range as GA for the last 30 years, except for the last 2.275 years.

It really depends on if you have kids or not. If you mention "public transportation" in GA, people will laugh at you.
