Atlanta receives 35 million visitors per year. If you lived here and didn't like it you were doing it all wrong. 03-wink

Four of which leave the airport by choice.

I like the suburbs of Atlanta, but despise the city itself.

Places like Woodstock and Roswell are cool. But Atlanta proper? I'd rather not sit in bumper to bumper traffic for hours to go hang out in the extremely overrated Buckhead. Give me a small, clean city like Charlotte all day long over Atlanta.

Grew up in Memphis & it was home. Moved to Atlanta & didn't like it. Moved to Seattle, liked it. Moved back to Atlanta, didn't like it. Total of 39 yrs in Atlanta/Cobb/N Fulton & never liked it really. Lots to do, sure, but the traffic is awful, metro planning is awful. Live in "way out" Coweta Co/Newnan area which is considered metro now due to Atlanta sprawl, & really like this area with virtually no traffic & still only 40 mins to the airport. Biggest thing happening down here is high school FB with Hotlanta close enough for NFL, NBA, MLB, concerts etc when the urge hits. But Atlanta, yep, guess I've done it wrong for decades.....
SMH...well you seem to to found a nice place that uiur ancient bones enjoy.

that's also the problem, though...traffic and long lines=Atlanta

And they all left disappointed. Joke that ATL has more "visitors" than Vegas and LA. Visitors definitely doesn't equate to "favorite city".
The number in 2016 was 50 million visitors and no they were not transferring at the airport.

No better place in the Summer

You need to venture out more for your summers.

There is a reason everyone in the north travels south for Spring Break, Summer vacation and Fall breaks. From the Outer Banks, to Charleston, Savannah, Destin, etc. Then check out all the visitor license plates.
I live in Myrtle Beach used to live in Savannah. The summer heat is oppressive water temperature too high second half of summer. I took my wife who is from SC there she loved it. The water stays cold enough to cool you off.
We could stay at the beach all day. A couple hours on a beach in the Southeast with that bath water is enough.

Definitely speaking my language here, but I have so few opportunities to explore these type of locales. My brother and I used to do a ton of it in Cincinnati when we visited there, albeit on a smaller scale. South Fairmont had some great spots, and the abandoned neighborhood (bunch of larger apartments) on the hillside below Christ Hospital was crazy. Got to explore the factory where Rheingeist is now just before they opened. Fortunately (I suppose), that's changing.

Detroit is ground zero. I would have been geeked. Something tells me Dayton will have plenty of opportunity for exploration over the next decade......

RE: favorite US city to visit
you talking glencoe. my buddy drove me around there once, never got boots on the ground. it looked heavenly. christ bought the land and leveled the hood. dayton will probably get there, but i hope not. it's a gem of a city. i've never even been there but it's proximity wants me to see it survive. speaking of surviving, hamilton hasn't been aware it's been dead for 50 years and now it's showing signs of reanimation.

there's some buildings along the trainyard in millvale i'd like to get in. and the crosley building.

Yep, aside from having to commute to northside ATL - my bones when young would have enjoyed this area too. ATL is a mess - traffic, government, politics, poor schools - hard to find much good about living in ATL if you enjoy the outdoors, privacy, organization, low crime, low costs....etc, etc. And this from someone with years of experience in the area.

To quote Aldo Leopold, "Of what avail are forty freedoms without a blank spot on the map?"

What do you do for a living out there?

Well, I'm retired, so this morning I grabbed my Nikon and went for a hike.

In my working life, I was a career employee of the National Park Service. I retired as Chief Ranger at Colorado National Monument in 1994. Before that I was Chief Ranger at Badlands NP in SD, a District Ranger at Theodore Roosevelt NP in ND, and a ranger on the Natchez Trace Parkway in MS and at the Grand Canyon in AZ.

Following a two-day retirement, I ruined a perfectly good woodworking hobby by working another nine years for a local custom cabinet manufacturer, first as a craftsman building special projects and later as the company's production planner.

In August, my wife and I will be volunteering for two weeks as a docent at the Museum of the National Park Ranger in Yellowstone. Housing is provided and we'll have four days off in the middle of our tour to immerse ourselves in the park's 2.2 million acres. Life is tough.

And that sir is a good life. 04-cheers

Big Detroit ruins fan. There's a guy on youtube with a channel all about his travels around town filming the various stuff. It's wild and I get glued going down the rabbit hole some nights but I am also saddened to see so many beautiful treasures just wasting away.
