I am currently living in College Park, Georgia and have lived here for a little less than 3 years. Atlanta is a little over 20 minutes away, so that makes my commute to work fairly easy. In addition we do have the MARTA here in our community, so that gives us another viable option of commuting to Atlanta.
This neighborhood is primarily historic. One would never know that we were located so close to a busy town. The families here are polite and just seem to want to live quiet lives. I can easily enjoy a stroll down the street in the evening hours.
The best areas in College Park, Georgia are the well-maintained parks and the homes that offer you views of beautiful, classic architecture. Your children will definitely enjoy a nice evening of playing in the park if you have children. If you would like to find more exciting things to do or would like a bite to eat, then you can easily travel to Atlanta for an evening out on the town.
