      Candler-McAfee, Growth In The City

      The only thing I need in the South is good food, beautiful nature surrounding me, and a break from mosquitoes. Thankfully, nature is in balance with a few touches of greener around Candler-McAfee.

      It may not be the deep woods on the Wake Forest campus in North Carolina or the sprawling greenery in Savannah, but it's nice. It's a good touch of quality living within Atlanta that commands respect and treats its people well.

      The best areas in Candler-McAfee, GA are Glendale Park and mark Trail Park, areas that can only get better as long as Atlanta brings a focus on inner-city beauty and safety. There are also plenty of restaurants along 155, so grabbing a bite to eat is all along the center of the area.

      The cost of living is to be expected in Atlanta--a deal, to be fair, if you consider how much the surrounding areas cost. The cost of living and the housing prices, coupled with how close it is to everything else in Atlanta, are honestly the biggest argument in favor of living in Candler-McAfee, GA.
