      LaGrange Has A Business Man's Brain With A College Student's Heart

      I've always loved the Atlanta area but it can tough to find the best place to live. There are lots of different cities, each with their own positives and negatives. I was looking for a town with a great community feel mixed with a thriving business community. That search led me to LaGrange, which is located just south of the massive Atlanta International airport.

      LaGrange is the home for more than 20 big international companies and that means not just jobs, but also a thriving business district. Large companies mean lots of jobs and as a result, LaGrange has plenty of opportunities to enjoy the suburban lifestyle while still living close to where you work.

      But with two colleges in LaGrange, the town also has a cool, slightly hip feel to it. For every office supply store there are a few coffee shops and diners, which makes for a nice mix of local businesses. And like many college towns, the residents are friendly an open to newcomers, which makes it easy if you're moving to the area for the first time.
