Probably the only city that doesnt have to be huge to be amazing. I've lived here since i was two.
Everybody here is warm and friendly. Its probably the friendliest places to live in the south. And believe me when i say that most rappers on MTV or BET is most likely from ATL. Downtown Atlanta is great. I wouldnt walk around alone, though. It's probably best to bring someone with you when youre strolling around downtown. The traffic isnt too bad, you'll live. And the lifestyle is affordable whereas to other places like Los Angeles, you'd probably have to be a plastic surgeon to survive.
Lots of bums in downtown Atlanta. Big concerts are thrown every now and then. Youve got Little Five Points for those goths and skaters. Its hot as hell in the summer time and when winter comes, its gets really realy chilly but it hasnt snowed since five years ago. You'll see some famous rappers if youre in the right place. Some rappers could be seen at like, Lenox Mall every once in a while. The school's here are okay. The best place to come down here is in the Summer where everything happens.
its easy to get to one place to another. if you live in the suburbs and wanna get downtown, it'll take you 30 minutes if you take Marta, which is our train. And and hour by car to get downtown if youre from the suburbs.

*****If you talk to anyone downtown, you will not understand them due to their heavy ghetto southern accent. see below.
