Atlanta is a big big city. And when we say big we mean it is spread out. Knowing that it’ll take you a minimum of 30 minutes to get anywhere in Atlanta due to the traffic is the first obstacle for recent transplants. But if you’re like us and know that traffic is a staple in most big cities, then you’ll be rewarded with Atlanta’s many attractions and activities. During the week, that traffic is due to so many people commuting into the city for work. Atlanta is home to a ton of headquarters, including Coke, Home Depot, and more! But on the weekend, you’ll have your pick of activities from breweries, walking on the famous Beltline, enjoying one of the many parks, and not to mention the amazing restaurants!

ITP(Inside The Perimeter), you’ll find everything from high-rise apartments, beautiful historic neighborhoods, mini-town centers surrounded by both luxury apartments and cozy condos, and plenty of green space for kids or your furry friends. OTP (Outside The Perimeter) you'll find your typical suburb. Whether you’re a recent college grad, a first-time empty nester or anything in between, you’ll find a place to call home in ATL.


Atlanta has “areas” and it has “neighborhoods.” You can say you live on the Northside and people will know exactly what you mean, but also ask you “where on the Northside?” You can live in amore established area like Buckhead or Inman Park, or you can live in the new “it” neighborhood (forever changing). Each Atlanta neighborhood has distinct housing options, so be sure to know if you want to rent or buy, live in a high-rise or a bungalow, and how close you need to be to work to not be miserable every morning.

Certain elected officials may have you feeling like Atlanta isn’t accepting of the LGBTQ+ community, but when you visit you’ll see how welcoming the people of Atlanta are. In fact, Atlanta has one of the highest populations of LGBTQ+ people in the US. If you ask us (and anyone in ATL), they’re going to tell you to check out Midtown. It’s the epicenter of the queer nightlife scene and is, overall, a very diverse and accepting community. You’ll be right in between Piedmont Park and the business district of Midtown which just means that you can have both an easy commute to work and an easy commute to your weekend plans!
