I live in Paulding County as well. It is pretty inexpensive to live here, and it seems like opportunities are growing.

Re: Need opinions GA mamas!

I'm near Peachtree City (and all the others you mentioned). PTC is very trendy/upscale (golf cart paths, etc.). Newnan is a nice small town. I'm in Griffin, but I don't know any other crunchy moms, so I can't help there.

Re: Need opinions GA mamas!

I live in Bartow County and I love it. Its out of Atlanta, but I can still get to what I need. My dh drives 32 miles to work. What type of work are you looking for? Clayton county is on the verge of the schools losing their accrediation. You can check out the local news website, wsbtv.com. The local newspaper is .ajc.com. PM me if you need any more info.

Re: Need opinions GA mamas!

I grew up in Peachtree City and Newnan then moved to NE Cobb County(Marietta) when I married. Peachtree City would be my choice by far, but the standard of living there is way higher than the other places you mentioned. It is really an upscale community. Newnan is not what I consider a small town size anymore. It is huge. I graduated from high school there. I loved living there, but wasn't sad to move north of town. I personally am not too fond of Carrollton because it is just to much of a college town for my taste.

I think the advice to check out Paulding County is great. They are growing by leaps and bounds out there and the cost of living is literally about 40% less than where I live just 30 minutes away. Hiram, Dallas, Douglasville, Powder Springs are all really reasonable.

Re: Need opinions GA mamas!

I grew up in Conyers and currently live in Covington-although I am closer to Conyers!

I don't recommend it, the traffic and crime are getting worse by the minute. Taxes are going up, but nothing seems to be happening with local officials to help. It's just bad all around here IMO. There are hardly any crunchy moms around here - at least not that I have found. Downtown Decatur is very expensive, but very crunchy.

DH suggests Peachtree City, it might cost a little bit more, but would be much nicer!

Re: Need opinions GA mamas!

we live in paulding county, as well. we love it here. cost of living is fine. we are close to atlanta, but not too close to be a bother. and the schools are good. paulding county (in my opinion!) is a much better option than newnan or carrollton or peachtree city

Re: Need opinions GA mamas!

I grew up about 30 minutes from Peachtree City. It is very nice but a little pricey. If you can afford it I would definitely go with that though.

Re: Need opinions GA mamas!

I'm in Marietta...you can pretty much find affordable housing anywhere in metro atl right now...there is an over supply of housing and there are HUGE bargains to be had.

Hubby came from Conyers and didn't like it...
