frick that. Metro-Atlanta is one of the best places in America.
Very diverse place in terms of different lifestyles you can live. It also depends on your job. Live near your work and you will love living in the metro atl. There is a reason atlanta is growing at such a rapid pace, great job opportunities, great food, good standard of living, and not far from the mountains or the beach.
Normally those that like to put it down are either misinformed, don't know what to do, or are stuck in forever "hate rival team city" mode for immature reasons.
