Whether you want to live in a trendy downtown loft, a nice home in the suburbs, or somewhere in between, you’re sure to find a deal as the cost of housing in this area is well below the national average.

Atlanta has been a transportation hub since it was founded in 1837, at the intersection of two railroad lines. Today, it connects travelers and freight via highway, rail, and air. Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the world’s busiest airport. The city is home to many industries, with dominant sectors in logistics, media, and professional and business services.
