Just outside of Atlanta, Smyrna is quickly becoming one of Atlanta’s go-to extra-urban neighborhoods. Bordered to the north by Dobbins Air Reserve Base, and to the west by the rural expanses of the truly out-of-Atlanta bucolic, Smyrna rests in the in-between.
Interstate 285 rides along the eastern edge of this ZIP, and with I-75 located close-by to the northeast, access to the heart of Atlanta couldn’t be easier. Still, as far as Atlanta is concerned, this is the country (with a skyline view): finding a piece of land that offers more than enough room to stretch out isn’t very difficult, and with a proximity less than a half hour to the heart of midtown, Smyrna is proof that it’s easy to have a piece of new-suburban paradise while never veering too far away from the reasons you decided to live close to the city in the first place.
