What do you like about Atlanta? Home to a large population of gays and lesbians. The inner perimeter and core of the city is very diverse. The further outside 285 you go the more conservative the politics and way of life.
The nightlife is very active and offers a variety of clubs and bars and other entertainment options.
What do you dislike about Atlanta? Becoming increasingly expensive. Traffic is bad at peak times. MARTA (subway system) needs to be expanded. City politics are very corrupt and mismanaged but what government isn't?
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Midtown, Virginia Highlands, Little Five Points, Candler Park, East Atlanta
How expensive is it? in town real estate is expensive for a single family home, 1br condos in a highrise is considerably cheaper
Is it safe? During the day yes it is. At night be more careful in less crowded areas. Pan handlers can get aggressive especially in the downtown core and around Underground.
How is the weather? The weather is warm and humid in the summer (mid to upper 80s) and winters are generally cool (upper 40 to low 50s) with periods of rain. Can get dreary here in January.
Additional thoughts? The city continues to boom post the 1996 Summer Olympics. If you don't want a long commute then live inside 285. You'll find that most people that live were not born here. Many of the native Georgians have moved further out into the exurbs or left the state. Not a typical southern city in terms of charm, personality or architechture. The city is large, busy, business friendly, and diverse. You won't find much difference here than any other large American city. If you want to find the "Old South", try Savannah.

What do you like about Atlanta? Cushy, relaxed style of life. It's like a northern city in the south in terms of the mindsets of the people, as most people aren't originally from Atlanta.
What do you dislike about Atlanta? How there is absolutely nothing to do there and it seems to be a mecca for pompous, nouveau-riche jerks.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Cafe Intermezzo in Dunwoody is a cool, cool european-style cafe. Cabbagetown is a kind of hip area to be, but no where really stands out. Buckhead is cushy for rich folk who like to shop.
How expensive is it?
Is it safe?
How is the weather? Hot and sunny summers. Some crazy hurricane weather at times, but generally reliable. Grey winters. No snow really.
Additional thoughts? If only there were something to do here, it wouldn't be a half bad place to live. All the museums seem to be made for babies.
