1. The Community
There’s an old trope that, in small towns, everyone knows your name. While that may not be exactly true, your neighbors may want to learn your name --- and your story --- over a nice, home-cooked meal. If you own a small business, other business owners tend to be less likely to see you as competition and instead a fellow compatriot, fighting against the big corporations. If you need a helping hand, your community is there for you --- Atlantans definitely struggle finding the same support.
2. The History
Sure, big cities have history. But they often don’t have traditions to go with it. Atlanta as a city simply doesn’t have a tradition that rivals, say, Barnesville’s Buggy Days. And that’s because the city is a lot of people from a lot of places that don’t interact with each other. In addition, buildings in the city are constantly being torn down and built over. In a small town, you can look at the same mural on that old brick building that your grandparents did --- a piece of Americana city-dwellers simply can’t find.
3. The Price
Living in a big city is expensive. Rent is expensive, gas is expensive, everything is expensive. In a small town, you can get your dream home for the same price as a small condo in Atlanta. You can raise your kids away from the busyness (and dangers) of the big city. All it takes is a little work from a real estate agent, and you could be living the life you’ve always dreamed of.
