I love Atlanta, but there are times when I can imagine myself living somewhere else. The metro area is home to several fantastic suburban communities and one of these is Austell. Located north of Atlanta, Austell is a short drive from downtown and is close to Mableton, Powder Springs, and Smyrna.
It’s a small, genteel city that’s largely located in Cobb County. A tiny part of it, however, extends all the way to Douglas County. Austell also has a relatively small population compared to other suburban areas – there are approximately 6,500 residents according to the latest estimates. Compared to the bustle of Atlanta, Austell is a chill city. If you do need a few thrills, however, you can easily head to Six Flags Over Georgia.
Austell is highly accessible, located about 4 miles from Interstate 20. The Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is only minutes away. If you want a slower pace of life in a family-friendly environment, I highly recommend taking a look Austell’s real estate offerings.
