Lol wtf is 55
going 55 will get you killed iyam
You really are an idiot
People from Alabama talking smack abt ATL is hilarious. 285 sees more traffic than most cities combined in AL. Yeah, there is always traffic there and always work to be done bc of that traffic-but that is living in/near a big city. ATL is a pretty cool city and if you look at population growth, then millions agree that ATL is a great place.
Atlanta sucks compared to DFW, Houston, Austin, Nashville, Charlotte, and most other major southern cities. Don't get me wrong, Buckhead area is cool and there are some good things about the city as a whole, but it's certainly last on that list.

Ohhhhh so THATS why you aren't AtlantaTide..
I did list several other cities though
285? Only peasant OTP suburbanites drive around on 285
Lulz DFW? Charlotte? GTFO
Let me guess, your Atlanta experience boils down to walking to the dome, staying in Buckhead and driving to your buddies houses in East Cobb and North Fulton, right? Maybe one late night trip to the Highlands?
The fact that East Atlanta and Decatur are still off the beaten path of people from outside the city is something I hope never changes.

Been to both of those areas plenty of times. Went to a great restaurant in Decatur two weekends ago. Leon's (on Ponce de Leon) is one of my favorite spots. That's a cool area down there. I still think Atlanta sucks though. My girlfiend and several friends are from there, so I've spent countless weekends across all parts both inside and outside the perimeter. It can be a fun place and there are cool spots here and there, but it doesn't compare to the other cities I listed. There are alot of negatives to Atlanta.
Good man good man.
Leon's is fantastic. I will concur that "Metro Atlanta" when you must include all of the miserable suburbs in Cobb, Gwinnett, North Fulton and Forsyth is awful. No culture, no hitsory (outside of a few pockets of old cities like Marietta and Roswell), just a bunch of planned communities of 7500 houses built between 1985 and present day.
I just try to avoid going out there unless I'm forced to for work or to see friends who have given up and moved that way.
Yeah exactly. And the inside perimeter areas like Decatur are cool, I just like some of the comparable areas in the cities I've mentioned better. I like to give Atlanta people a hard time because I know so many.
Yea I feel ya. And most of the bigger cities you named have the same issues outside of their city-centers, some not as bad as others.
Atlanta's problem is transportation, and based on this past summer that ain't gonna change anytime soon. The good news is there's a massive movement of young people back inside the perimeter, so hopefully that will make a difference in a few years.
Yeah the traffic is a killer. In DFW you have two large city centers so traffic doesn't all funnel into one downtown like with Atlanta. Having all those people funnel into one spot is terrible. Houston has the same problem as Atlanta, though. Nashville is smaller so they don't have that.
