Posted by Brian on July 18, 2016

When you’re considering a move to a new city, it’s a tough task to figure out what area of town or neighborhood you want to relocate in. When that city is Atlanta, with a metro area of about 8,000 square miles and consisting of 29 counties, the decision is even tougher.

The moving process, along with finding a new home, is stressful enough. When you’re looking for a new home in the Atlanta area, let us help narrow down your search. Last month, our suburban spotlight was the city of Smyrna.

While Smyrna is a great option, it’s not for everyone. Let us introduce you to a different area of greater Atlanta that will make an excellent potential home base. Here’s the rundown on Roswell, Georgia.

Roswell Spotlight

Located in North Fulton County, Roswell sits just north of Dunwoody and Sandy Springs. While it’s considered a medium-sized city, it is considered the eighth largest community in the state of Georgia. The charming community is located off of GA-400, making it relatively easy to commute into the city and reach other interstates, such as I-75 and I-85. The short distance to Atlanta – just 22 miles – makes the location work well for those who commute to work or who like to visit the city often.

Families will love the selection of grade schools for their families. Roswell’s public schools are a part of the Fulton County School System and include about 15 various grade schools, with the option of a charter school and various private schools.

Those who enjoy the quieter aspects of suburban life will be thrilled to discover that Roswell is home to 18 public parks with 800 acres of land. From rec sports leagues for the kids, to hiking and walking trails, to bird watching and the Chattahoochee River National Recreation area, there are innumerable ways to connect with nature in this suburb.

However, while it does provide outdoor activities, Roswell is also home to fine dining, shopping, and cultural events. The historic downtown district gives off a quaint, small town feel. Browse through shops, boutiques, antique shops, and art galleries.

Roswell also hosts a variety of parades, festivals, and cultural and educational events the entire family will enjoy. Be sure to check the schedule of events as there are happenings going on all year long.

Those who live in Roswell enjoy the full life it provides. From the unique shopping and dining to the opportunity to slow down and appreciate nature, there are plenty of things to do here.

However, it’s still close enough to the city of Atlanta that you are easily able to head into the city for a fun night on the town. Whether you have plans for an afternoon sports outing, to take advantage of the city’s nightlife, or a family learning experience at one of Atlanta’s many museums, when you live in Roswell you have the option to do all of those! Since the community is a short distance from the city, residents are truly able to enjoy the best of what both the city and suburbia have to offer.
