Why Smyrna is a Hidden Gem

Proximity to Atlanta

First off, let's talk about Smyrna's unbeatable location. Being on the edge of Atlanta means you get the best of both worlds: the bustling city life and a quieter suburban setting. If you're tired of the city noise but still need to be close for work or leisure, Smyrna provides an ideal compromise. You're literally minutes away from the city’s hotspots, thanks to Interstate 285.

A Rich Tapestry of History

Smyrna's history isn't just a couple of pages long. This city has seen significant growth from its early beginnings in the 1830s, survived the Civil War, and transformed into a buzzing residential and commercial hub. The history adds layers to the city’s identity, making it a fascinating place to live.

A Diverse Job Market

If you're worried about employment opportunities, consider this: big names like IBM, Atlanta Bread Company, Eaton Corporation, and UCB call Smyrna home. Even if you work in Atlanta, the easy commute means you won't have to compromise on lifestyle for work opportunities.

Top-Notch Education

For families with kids, schools are often the deal-breaker when choosing a new place to live. Smyrna's got you covered with its range of high-quality public and private schools. Plus, there are plenty of extracurricular activities to keep the kids busy and engaged.

Food, Entertainment, and the Works!

Culinary Adventures

Smyrna's culinary scene is diverse and growing. Whether it's the New York-style pizza from Zucca Bar & Pizzeria, Southern cooking at South City Kitchen, or affordable and fast Mexican at Tacos La Villa, you're in for a treat. And if you love trying out local brews, there are plenty of pubs and bars to explore.

Weekend Vibes

Who doesn't love a good weekend market? Smyrna hosts a “Fresh Produce Market” every Saturday from May through September. And if you're not in the mood for veggies, “Food Truck Tuesdays” could be your jam. On top of that, there are festivals like the Spring and Fall Jonquil Festivals to add to the community spirit.

Retail Therapy

When it comes to shopping, Smyrna packs a punch with Cumberland Mall, which houses over 150 stores. Besides, the "live, work, play" communities like Market Village, Ivy Walk, and West Village add another dimension to retail shopping, offering a mixed-use space for restaurants, retail, and residences.

Greenspaces and Outdoor Fun

A town isn't complete without its parks, and Smyrna is home to over two dozen of them. Whether it's hiking, walking your dog, or enjoying a day out with the kids, these parks offer something for everyone. Not to mention golfing opportunities at Fox Creek Golf Course & Driving Range.

Beyond the Everyday

If you're a thrill-seeker, Smyrna is just miles away from Six Flags. For sports enthusiasts, SunTrust Park, the home of the Atlanta Braves, adds an extra layer of excitement. And let's not forget about the AMC Parkway Pointe 15 for movie buffs.

Budget-Friendly Living

The cherry on top is the housing market. Smyrna is wallet-friendly compared to other Atlanta suburbs. Whether you're a first-time homebuyer, looking to downsize, or seeking a luxurious estate, Smyrna has something for every budget.

In a Nutshell

Smyrna isn't just another suburb; it's a lively, affordable, and versatile community that makes for an ideal living destination. From its strategic location and rich history to its excellent schools and thriving job market, Smyrna ticks all the boxes. Combine that with its plethora of food, shopping, and entertainment options, and it's clear why moving to Smyrna might just be the best decision you'll make.
