I lived in the city of Sandy Springs, GA for four years, from 2004-2008. Sandy Springs is an affluent, mostly white suburb of Atlanta. The population of Sandy Springs is in the 80,000's. There are many headquarters of Fortune 500 companies in Sandy Springs, United Parcel Service and Rubbermaid, for example. Due to this, jobs are fairly plentiful in the area.

Sandy Springs borders the Chattahoochee River where there are many Antebellum style mansions with big columns as seen in Gone With The Wind with riverfront views where a variety of water sports and activities can be enjoyed. There are many unique, upscale shopping centers and antique malls in Sandy Springs. Because it's an upscale community and so close to Atlanta (20 minute drive) there are also many restaurants with a large variety of cuisine available, sushi and vegetarian to name a couple.

There is also a large selection of nightlife in the city including comedy and live music as well as, free outdoor concerts and free outdoor family movies in the summer. There are twelve public parks in Sandy Springs many offering children and adult activities and sports. Sandy Springs also has an art school, community theatre and a vintage movie theatre.
