Why We Love Smyrna, Georgia
Smyrna is located about 15 minutes outside the City of Atlanta and only 15 to 20 minutes from the airport. Residents enjoy easy access to the major interstates (I-75 and I-285) and US Hwy 41, so it’s a fantastic option for commuters. It’s also minutes from the popular Vinings Village and North Buckhead, as well as several corporate headquarters, including Home Depot, Atlanta Bread Company and IBM.
In the 1990s, several developments were constructed, including the Jonquil Village and Smyrna Market Village. Smyrna Market Village gave the community a center to gather for festivals, farmers markets, and open air concerts. It also offers some fantastic boutiques and restaurants, from Atkins Park Tavern to Zucca Bar and The Corner Taqueria. For those home buyers that were attracted to the Vinings area, but wanted to spend a bit less on their home or condo, Smyrna GA now offers a similar personality and charm.
