By Laura Horton:
I have enjoyed exploring Atlanta and its vastly different neighborhoods as I grew from a teenager in the suburbs to an adult living and working intown. My goal is to help you make Atlanta feel like home, whether you've been here for years or you're just arriving.
One of the best things about this city is that it is still young compared to many others, and therefore Atlanta is experiencing tremendous and exciting growth. From new restaurants to fun events to neighborhood information, the Atlanta guide on About.com is always changing, just like Atlanta.
