Roswell, GA


Not my style - 11/8/2017
While the public schools are good, they are constantly being under-funded and classroom sizes are increasing. You can get a decent home for the money here, but the area I am in (Roswell/East Cobb) is full of people who have lived here forever. As a rule, they are not very friendly or interested in meeting new people. Fortunately with the Internet, I was able to meet local people in the area that have things in common with me (politically blue, non-christian).

There is a small amount of diversity here and the public transport consists of buses that run on larger streets, but not anywhere else. There is a lot of green space and, if you like hiking, tennis, etc you will enjoy the outdoor activities here. Summer is hot and stifling and there is no large body of water within a decent drive (closest is about 5 hours w/o traffic). Traffic of course, is awful considering the under-funded and under-utilized transit system. Additionally, the casual racism here is disheartening.

I do like my house and the small group of people that I call friends, but I haven't really found anything here to love. I am glad my husband is doing well at work and my daughter likes school, but that is about it. There is not a cultural scene unless you are willing to face traffic and go to the city. Once you are there, it is not the caliber I would expect for a major US city. In general, it is sort of like LA with the conspicuous consumerism, but with a conservative twist.
