If one were to look up “slightly suburban Atlanta” in the dictionary, they’d probably see a picture of a street in Dunwoody alongside the entry.
Dunwoody is a place of distinction: it manages to walk a careful balance between the old and the new; the close-in and the just-out-of-the-way-enough. It’s a commercial center, for one: just to the southeast of this ZIP, Perimeter Mall offers one of the best shopping experiences in the region. Meanwhile Perimeter Center (denoted by its iconic “Queen” and “King” buildings serves as one of the city’s premier centers of exchange and high business.
But it’s also a place where Atlantans have called home for years. Suburbanism isn’t a new concept in this city, but in Dunwoody, the conveniences are just close enough so checking out the newest Atlanta has to offer isn’t a two hour-each-way affair. Meanwhile, at home, close-knit neighborhoods of tasteful homes provide the perfect venue for families to thrive, all while being located close-by to some of the best medical care, schooling, and cultural fixtures the Southeast has to offer.
