Buckhead is the “old money” part of town, a place of affluence and elegance. Kids in northern Atlanta could attend Sarah Smith, Brandon, and Jackson Elementary schools, all recognized as being among the best in the country. North Atlanta High School, home of the Warriors, is new to the Atlanta school district, having been built in 2013. It’s closer to the Paces neighborhood. Living in Buckhead could mean outings to the local Atlanta History Center, a stroll around Lenox Square, or a night at the Buckhead Theatre.
If you live and work in Smyrna, there’s a good chance you work at the Atlanta Bread Company, IBM, or Emory-Adventis Hospital. Fans of outdoor living could take weekend hikes on the Silver Comet Trail or swim at the public pool at Aline Wolfe Center. A night out for dinner could start at the Porch Light Latin Kitchen, with cuisine inspired by Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Argentina, and end with a movie at AMC Parkway or a daring escape from the Ultimate Escape Game with its five challenging rooms.
It always helps to know the laws in a new place, but what about those weird old laws that make no sense but are still on the books? Oddly, men can’t give other men piggy-back rides in Atlanta. If you happen to have a giraffe (and who doesn’t), it’s against the law to tie it to a street lamp or pole. Lastly, and this may be more considerate of your neighbors than dumb, you can’t move at night. Check to find out the noise ordinance law for moving in Georgia.
