Tips for Relocating to Atlanta from SR Homes

Relocating to Atlanta? There’s never been a better time than now to relocate to this quickly growing city and its booming metropolitan area. Between its affordable housing options, incredible work opportunities, great schools and abundance of things to do, the Atlanta area truly has it all.

Living
The Atlanta area offers a unique balance of both urban and suburban living options that are much more affordable in comparison to other big cities. Inside the perimeter, townhomes, condominiums and apartment communities make up a large portion of the busy city and provide convenience to those who live and work in town. However, for those looking to avoid the in-town rush, the surrounding metro Atlanta area offers the best of both worlds.

Most residents living in the suburbs own their own homes rather than rent. These homes and communities offer homebuyers an affordable option in a laid-back living environment without compromising convenience to the city. Fulton County, which includes Johns Creek, Alpharetta and Roswell, ranks as one of the best suburban areas to live thanks to its safe environments, diverse communities and modern lifestyle. Other popular metro Atlanta communities include Forsyth, DeKalb and Gwinnett counties.

Work
With the fifth-highest job growth rate in the U.S., Atlanta is a hot spot for Fortune 500 companies and several large corporations. For example, Delta Airlines, The Home Depot, Coca-Cola, AT&T, UPS, Mail Chimp and more call Atlanta home, providing employment for thousands of Atlanta residents. Of course, the corporate world isn’t for everyone and many prefer to work on a smaller scale. Luckily, both Atlanta and its suburbs are thriving entrepreneurially and are great places for small business entrepreneurs or those launching a startup. No matter what career is taken, the Atlanta area has plenty of room and resources for career growth.

Schools
The Atlanta area offers tons of great public, charter, magnet and private schools with many ranking among the best schools in Georgia. According to the latest report from Niche, Forsyth County, Fulton County and Gwinnett County rank among the top Atlanta area county’s interns of education, providing eight out of the ten top public high schools in the Atlanta area. These schools include Northview High, North Gwinnett High and Johns Creek High among many others.

Atlanta also has numerous opportunities for higher education, as well as public and private universities including Georgia State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, Morehouse College and more within the Perimeter. Outside the city, even more schools like Kennesaw State University, Brenau University, University of North Georgia and several technical colleges offer quality education to metro Atlanta residents.

Things to Do
The Atlanta area is filled with fun things to do. In the metro area, residents can expect to find charming city center areas bursting with local businesses and frequent community events. Pocketed around are a variety of local state parks, nature centers, golf clubs and athletic complexes that offer numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation. Trendy mixed-use developments have also found their way outside the Perimeter with Avalon, Halcyon, North Georgia Premium Outlets and North Point Mall providing a one-stop destination for high-end shopping, dining, entertainment and green spaces. Many areas are even building a series of trails such as The Big Creek Greenway, to provide easy access between these exciting attractions to the rest of the town.

For those looking to venture to the nearby city, popular Atlanta attractions like the World of Coca-Cola, The Georgia Aquarium, Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park, Zoo Atlanta, Fernbank Museum, Centennial Olympic Park and Atlanta Botanical Garden offer exciting, educational and family-friendly experiences.

Food enthusiasts and avid shoppers can find incredible dining at Ponce City Market and Krog Street Market, as well as great shopping at Lenox Square and Westside Provisions. Sports fans can enjoy catching an Atlanta United or Atlanta Falcons game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium or watch the Atlanta Hawks play at State Farm Arena.
