Local Reviews

The location is great. I am close to the interstate with easy access to I-20 and I-285. I am 15 min drive from downtown Atlanta and all it offers such as the Georgia Aquarium, Centennial Park, and the Atlanta Zoo. I am 17 min from the airport and the Fox Theater. I am 5 miles from Whole Foods.

I like how peaceful and pleasant the neighborhood is. The neighbors are really nice and look out for each other. Local businesses add so much value to the neighborhood as well.

The unique is the historical churches. Frie!nds and I enjoy going to the local pubs and eatery staying close to home.

I like that it is close to a lot of shopping centers. I also like that the bus isn't too far of a distance from me.

I like to go to the nearby pedestrian streets, where there is a lot of food, I think there is nothing that food can't cure

My wife and kids and I like to go to restaurants, stores, We need a restaurant, a bar, and a video arcadeKFC, McDonald's,
