Lots to do, Crime can be high but there are good and bad parts.

Favorite places was the world of coke and the braves stadium. As well as the Varsity restaurant is a classic.

I try to not think about the crime level too much, although Georgia has had its share! Going to schools here were some of my most memorable moments! Between the best environments, wonderful friends and motivating teachers school is awesome!

The best thing that stands out about Georgia is the always growing to fit the needs of the people! Even though old buildings are being torn down, new and exciting buildings are coming up!

I love the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. They are awesome. I always find new flowers and interesting facts. The place is beautiful and a must see. They even have a spot for your children to play and rest.

The observatory is wonderful. Please go in and look around. You will love the flowers.

I love Atlanta. Crime is at a moderate amount. Quality of schools are dependent on the area you are in within the city. There are many things to do and many small stores/shops. There is a diverse range of people. The scenery is nice. There are alot of tourist and fun attractions inside and outside of the city.

A few of my favorite places are: Lenox Mall, Piedmont/Chastain Park, World of Coca Cola, Six Flags over Georgia, White Waters, the hookah lounges, and Edgewood bars. I HATE the traffic and the overcrowded population in the city.

It's always dirty. Everytime I go to this airport I end up getting sick afterward.

The employees are rude and not helpful. Everytime I ask for help it seems that everyone is in a bad mood.

I like how big Atlanta Georgia is and how lively and nice this place is.

I like the roads and how busy and nice this place is.

Sometimes I have to go to Atlanta for business. Every time I go, I see way to much crime and feel very uncomfortable in many areas of the city. I don't feel like it is a safe place to raise a family.

There are some good things about Atlanta such as the museums and restaurants. The part that stands out the most is the crime. I would not raise my family in Atlanta.

I hate Atlanta. To start with the airport. It is so crowded, no good places to eat if you are stuck there, has no architectural charm. Invariably you arrive late as everything there is always backed up and then you have to change planes and take that stupid tram which is very time consuming. The only saving grace is that the connecting flight is frequently delayed.

I think besides the horrible airport the traffic is also quite crowded and the people drive like maniacs. (This and I drive in FL which is also not a picnic.)

Atlanta is a great town. You will never run out of things to do no matter how many times you visit and if you live here, there is always something going on from festivals to awesome sporting events to farmers' markets to shows. It is a mix of the good and bad and you have to be careful but it will be worth it if you just follow some simple personal safety and have a safe form of transportation.

Atlanta has more to do than you could ever do in a lifetime. There are events all the time from annual events like DragonCon and the Peachtree Road Race to sporting events such as the Falcons, Braves or the new Atlanta United. If you get tired of that, there are tons of museums and parks. Atlanta does have some dangerous areas and there is a significant amount of crime so one has to be careful and mind your wallet and if you are considering using the Marta train system as a tourist, you may want to consider a safer form of travel such as car or Uber.

Crime in downtown is really bad. Do not go there at night alone or at all really

traffic is terrible all across the city


09/19/2018

I feel like there is always something to do in Atlanta. You have several attractions- like Six Flags, Stone Mountain, World of Coca Cola. and so much more. It is also several eating places as well.

The traffic was crazy busy, the buildings downtime was nice.
