DH and I currently live in Philly, but are in the final steps of a move to ATL! He got a great job offer, and my job will likely be letting me work remotely. ATL has appeal because his parents live there, we currently have no family here in Philly and are now parents to a two month baby girl His parents live to the south of the city, in Newnan. I'm trying to get an idea of neighborhoods we should check out, but almost everything talks about the northern suburbs. While they do seem quite nice, it would defeat the purpose of moving closer to have family help out if we are that far away! Commute is not an issue, as I will be at home working and my husband will either be traveling out of the area or working from home too.
Any advice for a great family community either in atlanta or one of the southern suburbs? Needs great schools of course. I love a sense of a neighborhood, not just plazas of stores (aka coffee shops, farmers markets, areas to walk/run, etc). So far I've considered Peachtree City, but also Decatur, Grant Park, East Atlanta, since I am a bit of a city girl at heart.
