Georgia City Was Named Among The Best Places To Move To
Fifty Grande has published a list of best cities to move to, and a Georgia city made the top five. “Nearly everyone has a time when they need a change of scenery: when their hometown or the place they moved after college just isn’t cutting it anymore, when they’re either getting bored, priced out or looking for a new start,” Fifty Grande explains. Their list aims to help guide those who are looking to move, but don’t know where to start.
The Georgia city that Fifty Grande named the best to move to is only 20 miles north of Atlanta.
#6 Sandy Springs
The first key feature of Sandy Springs that Fifty Grande points out is the encouraging employment opportunities. They say, “The job market here is solid, sitting well under the national unemployment average at 2 percent, bolstered by big companies like Cox Enterprises, WestRock, and UPS.”
Sandy Springs contains nine public schools and two high schools. The city is accessible by two major highways, Georgia 400 and Interstate 285. If you don’t like driving or do not have a car, public transportation is available. MARTA’s (Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) bus and train routes stop throughout the area.
What Is Unique About Sandy Springs?
Well, there is a forest in the actual city. Hiking the trails through John Ripley Forbes Big Trees Forest, you will see 30 acres of oak trees. In some cases, they are up to 200 years old. Morgan Falls Overlook Park is also a popular place for hiking of fishing.
If you are looking for shopping and entertainment, there are 15 different strip malls in Sandy Springs. Jeff Foxworthy and Ryan Seacrest also have roots here. Foxworthy started out as a regular performer at The Punch Line Comedy Club. In addition, Ryan Seacrest (who grew up 10 minutes away in Dunwoody) founded his original Seacrest Studios at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in Sandy Springs.
If you are looking for a more relaxed big city feel that is still close to the state capital, it is clear why Sandy Springs, Georgia was named one of the best cities to move to in America.
