Review of Atlanta, Georgia

Don't do it.
Star Rating - 2/27/2021
Don't move here. Just don't. I've lived here nearly 40 years, and it is nothing like what it used to be. Traffic and sprawl is insane. Crime is bad. Cost of living is ridiculous, particularly for rent. The "ritzy" part of the city has been taken over by gangs and crime. Atlanta is business, business, business, and nothing else. Planning to get the H out of here and head to the mountains.

I agree. I was born and raised in Atl and it has become a dangerous and overcrowded city. Daily I see so many out of state licenses plates that seems like I’m in another city. I see tons of NY, NJ, Texas, Fla, Alabama, Virginia on a daily basis. The interstates and side streets have become very congested. Crime has gotten out of control. People are even getting shot while driving in the interstates (we had 8 separate car shooting deaths) so far in 2021. The southern hospitality we once prided ourselves with in Atl is now gone. People are now more cold spirited and unfriendly. I’m considering moving far away from the Atl area.
