Where Are The Safest Places To Live? Posted On: 7/25/2010 8:02:56 PM
I'm a white, single, 26 yr old male who is relocating from Dallas/Ft. Worth,TX to Georgia in the middle of August this year. I have been looking for a safe, entertaining place to call home that has a good amount of young adults residing there. I know that Atlanta is going to be an obvious answer from many as there are tons of young adults and lots of things to do. However, I have heard and read from many that crime is can be a big concern, and traffic is unbearable.
So, my question is this: Are there any Georgia residents who can recommend ANY safe, entertaining region/city for young adults like myself outside of Atlanta?
Relocating From Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX to Georgia! Posted On: 7/25/2010 7:45:11 PM
I am a young, white, single male (26 years old) and will be relocating from Dallas/Ft. Worth,TX to Georgia in the middle of August. I have been trying to research safe, yet entertaining areas for single people my age. I know that Atlanta is going to be an obvious answer when it comes to entertainment, but I hear that crime can be a concern, and that the traffic can be unbearable.
Are there any Georgia residents who can recommend a safe place outside of Atlanta for someone like myself to live? I just need help with people who are familiar with the better cities/areas to live in, as I am a stranger to the state of GA. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I look forward to being there soon!

How much does apartment rent run for on avg. in seattle? What about the prices for gas, food and entertainment? Can a person live comfortably off of $30,000-31,000? Or is that stretching it? If anyone could let me know, I would really appreciate a reply back!

Traffic in Grapevine is really bad at 8am, 5pm and 7pm mon-fri. However, it is starting to increase to where it doesn't matter what day it is. Grapevine does have a lot of back roads you can use that will keep you from stopping. The downside is, that you will end up being caught up in traffic no matter what. Sometimes if you take back roads it is only 15 mins of a wait. At all costs, just avoid highways. Take access roads (which end up being just as fast as the highway) nowadays. The city population continues to grow. I have lived in grapevine from when it was nice and non-crowded to what it is now. A lot of people are trying to live in Grapevine and just commute to Dallas, Ft. Worth, Arlington or any other major city that is only a 20 mins. commute away. Grapevine has a lot of the same things to do. In every place there is malls, restaurants, movie theater, bowling, malls, restaurants, movie theater and bowling. After a while Grapevine gets really tiring to live in. Drivers are bad and rude. Traffic is awful as I have stated. The schools are very good. The problem is that the schools keep growing. When I graduated from High School, the incoming freshman class was over 1500 students. But, you do get a good education and the schools have been rated very high. Overall, it is great at first, but after a while there is nothing to do ... and the main irritant is TRAFFIC
