This far south, one word is going to ring. Airport. Heck, some of the runways of ATL are located within the 30354 ZIP code, so it’s no surprise that this small corner of the city is dominated by the world’s busiest transport hub.
It doesn’t seem that way just a little to the east, however. While this ZIP covers portions of I-75 and I-285, you’re not likely to find too many new residents who frequent the main drag of Midtown and Downtown. Still, this southern nook has a purpose. Some large businesses are located just to the south of Atlanta, so an address that offers inside-the-perimeter living with convenient access to the suburbs does has its appeal (especially when the heavy rush-hour traffic so common in Atlanta’s core is taken out of the equation.
And, of course, there’s the airport. Frequent travelers, who do little more than hang their hat in Atlanta as a home base may benefit from a location so close to ATL, which is only a few minutes’ drive away.
