A small town on the southern outskirts of Atlanta, Short distance to Newnan, Atlanta Airport, and other attractions. Great to raise a family and find things to do. Shopping is close, but if you prefer mass transportation I wouldn't advise.

The great thing is nothing stands out, its a quiet town. There is a Renaissance Festival that's seasonal and a commercial train station. Other than that its a blip on the map.
