Little Rock, ARLittle Rock is Great
While I had many preconceived notions of what Little Rock would be like, it turns out to be a really interesting, and in a way eclectic city. The public transportation system reaches pretty much everywhere one would need to go. The cost of living in Little Rock is well below the national average for a state capitol. I don't know exactly when the bars and clubs close, but I know some of them are open until 5 am. The Arkansas river flows right by Market Street, which is loaded with very eclectic bars, live music joints, a tourist center, and even an organic food store.
There are casinos, horsetracks and interesting historical areas within an hour or a couple hour drive of Little Rock. I met people who were young singles all the way to retirees, most of the local people I met loved Little Rock. The charm of southern hospitality still exists in Little Rock, whereas, in Atlanta things are changing at a faster pace.
In education there are decent school systems in the Greater Little Rock area, or else there is a plethora of private school choices, for a really inexpensive rate, in terms of what I am use to in Atlanta. Little rock also has decent schools of higher education; and the only Master of Public Service degree program in the country and probably the world.
Lawrenceville, GASpring time in Lawrenceille
Although Lawrenceville has changed a lot over the past 23 years that I have lived here, it is still a pleasure to live here and enjoy a relatively high quality of life. I travel a lot around the world for school and work and I enjoy experiencing different cultures. Lawrenceville by some estimates has the second largest Bosnian/former Yugoslavian community in the United States. We also have a burgeoning Hispanic community, whom are slowly becoming important business leaders and working professionals after immigrating here, usually in the last 10 years. There is also a large African community with folks community coming from Nigeria, Mali, Liberia, just to name a few. The Korean community is a very major important component in the future growth and development of Greater Gwinnett county.
Transportation wise,the bus system is not the best, but if you don't mind walking a mile or two you'll be fine. Our bus system connect all the way down to Hartsfield International airport, or whatever its called these days.
The food is amazing. As compared to ITP, or inside the perimeter Atlanta, where there is also amazing food; food prices and of course the cost of living is much cheaper in Lawrenceville. The cuisine is as culturally diverse as Lawrenceville itself.
I hope this
