i live in sandy springs. it's ok i guess. i ride the train into work downtown so i don't have to deal with the traffic, so that aspect is good. it does sorta seem like cary to me, only bigger.

i'll fucking sound snobby - don't live outside the perimeter (OTP)...dunwoody is a scary place...dated a girl from there - nothing but a strip mall. the closer you live to downtown the better imo - it's a reverse commute just about everywhere

if you want the burbs, drive north on peachtree, continue north when it turns into peachtree- indstrial/141 outside the perimeter, and just keep going north. nothing but suburbia-land and strip malls for mile and miles and miles.

after having just done the house hunt in ATL - each area has an entirely different feel to it - it's not something that one can easily convey to you - just have to drive around and spend some time down there

smyrna is outside the perimeter...vinings is nearby, and is nice in its own right (i work up there)...but i go out in the midtown/highlands/little 5 area most of the time

you DO NOT want to commute into town...traffic is a bitch

Yeah, I think I would like Little 5 Points a lot, and Buckhead was fun back in the day even though I heard its died off some... what about living there and commuting OUT to Smyrna?

commute out isn't bad at all...i live in inman park and work in vinings...other than a little bit of slow-down on the downtown connector, it's clear and open. coming home i take the surface streets thru GT and midtown to get home...about 20-25 mins to work, 25-30 mins home...well worth living in the inman/highland/little 5 area

^ yeah, i second that easy comute out to smyrna from intown. i live in the highlands and work out in smyrna (kinda, southern most edge of smyrna where 75 and 285 intersect).

20min drive to work, 30min drive home using surface streets (75S, get off at that 17th,14th,10th exit) and use surface streets to cross over to the highlands

every once in a while 75 will get back up to past northside/howell mill, but its pretty rare and in the end adds only another 10-15min max to my commute, so not bad at all.

i only asked because i'm fairly certain that jaybee is looking to buy and wasn't sure of the market in that area to buy - i haven't looked but i imagine it's in the low 200s for a 2br condo and goes up from there

no, was looking to rent for a year probably just to get used to the area and see what I like, but if there was some really really good deal then I would consider buying, but probably just rent

so, what places are fun in buckhead? and let me preface things by saying that I prefer dive bars and clubs, but real clubs, not bars or lounges that happen to have a dance floor, I fucking HATE "martini lounges" or any place with fucking "tapas"...

^smiths olde bar is pretty fun i think, i like dive-ish bars too. its dark and laid back. i think they always have bands playing in the upstairs section that you can pay to see, but the bottom level is free to get in.

^ in buckhead you're pretty much just gonna find either a) lounges, b) mediocre dance clubs or c) ultra-fratty UGA bars full of white oxford shirts and boat shoes.

that being said, i enjoy some of the places in buckhead. but you're not gonna find any dive bars or legit nightclubs. if you like to dance, though, tongue and groove isn't too bad (a bit overpriced for my tastes, but the DJ is pretty good).

all dive bars have fratty contingents - just deal with it. otherwise you're going to find yourself hanging out on buford highway with mexicans and asians
