Overview of Doraville

The diverse, growing city of Doraville sits just outside Atlanta. Despite its position in a thriving metropolitan area, Doraville retains the small-town feel and resident involvement of a much smaller community. As the city grows and adapts to modern society, it retains its unique charm.

Doraville apartments for rent are available to suit every need, and most are conveniently located near either a highway or airport.

Living in Doraville, GA

Doraville started out as a small agricultural town in 1871. For years it functioned as a community for employees of the nearby General Motors plant. After the plant shut down, the community needed to reinvent itself to effectively deal with the changes.

Since Doraville is just a few miles northeast of Atlanta, near multiple highways, interstate expressways and several airports, the area quickly became a business hub. With its business-friendly attitude and dedication to leadership, Doraville is unlike any other community in the area.

According to July 2011 data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Doraville is home to 8,429 residents. The strong city has grown and continued to thrive since its early days as a farming community.

Doraville Work and Study

Georgia State University in Atlanta is about 15 miles northeast of Doraville, making the school a convenient option for residents interested in higher education. This large public college was founded in 1913 and offers students the opportunity to obtain degrees in more than 100 different fields of study. This urban university also gives pupils a chance to learn in a diverse environment and participate in a range of internships and student activities.

Atlanta is much more than just a college town, as it's also home to a number of large employers. Doraville residents need only hop on I-85 and merge on to I-75 to reach jobs in downtown ATL. Large employers in Atlanta include Allied Baron Security Services, International Business Machine Corp., The Coca-Cola Company, Air Service Corp. and Accenture LLP. The media industry also employs large numbers of people in the Atlanta area, and many find jobs with Turner Broadcasting System and Cable News Network.

Rentals in Doraville, GA, and Cost of Living

Apartments in Doraville typically range from about $800 to $1,250 per month, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The same source indicates that the median gross monthly rent in the city is $920.

Doraville residents who commute to Atlanta for work will find that the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) has a bus and rail service that shuttle passengers throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area. 

Doraville Attractions and Special Events

Doraville offers a variety of sports and recreational programs to boost community involvement and support a healthy lifestyle. From boxing to basketball, there are plenty of team sports to try out. Those who prefer an individual challenge can try martial arts, aerobics or even water aerobics for a fun workout. Lots of parks and outdoor spaces are also available for residents to enjoy, such as Autumn Park, English Oak Park and Honeysuckle Park.

Doraville also offers movies in the park during the warmer months. These events feature live entertainment and a film. There are also family-friendly activities for groups of all ages, and residents can connect with neighbors and other community members while enjoying the movie at these events.

The area's annual Memorial Day celebration is a fun activity for residents across the county. The weekend event features an art festival, live entertainment, kid-friendly activities and a theater festival. The highlight for some is the annual flag retirement ceremony, during which worn out American flags are disposed of with dignity.
