What’s your favorite place in or near Atlanta?
As I have grown older, the answer to this question has changed. I think that currently one of my favorite places in the Atlanta Metro area would be Smyrna, which is where I currently live. The downtown atmosphere and surrounding area has a lot going on, and it is hard to find a day where there is not some sort of event happening.
