Although the area is growing quite quickly and the traffic rises to match, I've really come to enjoy living in this city. As a Korean-American I am surrounded by a plethora of asian supermarkets and Korean restaurants, which is really important considering I grew up in a very small town that had no ethnic diversity. The city offers plenty to do in form of recreation, to biking and walking paths, dog parks and playgrounds, a beautiful town center with many restaurants and opportunities to have fun, etc. If they could fix the traffic congestion around I-85 and Lawrenceville Suwanee road, I might give it 5 stars.

Best things are the restaurants and variety of bars you can visit. The bad is the traffic, which is prevalent through all of metro Atlanta and its surroundings. You can't really escape it here unless you commute during off hours.
