Let's begin by clarifying our definition of luxury. We are not talking mansions in Long Island or condos in the Hamptons; but Forest Park has its fair share of luxurious, all-bills-paid apartments at affordable rentals. Even as the city has emerged as a favorable residential area in the past few years, apartments don't exactly sell like hotcakes here. Not even inexpensive hotcakes. Which is good for you, as it makes apartment searching a heck of a lot easier.
There are several apartment complexes down Morrow Drive, Old Dixie Highway and near Downtown. Not only do these complexes have a variety of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments, some of these also come with swimming pools, club houses, racquetball courts and other amenities. Now you might question the decision of staying in an apartment complex in a suburban area. Doesn't the main city have enough of these, anyway? Fair enough. If you are looking for a more homelyapartment, you can find one with a backyard and front lawns where your kids can spend their evenings hopscotching and jump-roping. Such single family apartment homes are available at Morrow Road and Cypress Drive among others. Morrow Road and Old Dixie Highway are popular among people as they have some of the city's best restaurants including Piece of Wally and Bojangles Forest Park. Not just that, these neighborhoods are just a 10-minutes drive from Jonesboro Road, which is where the most happening places of Forest Park are.
Forest Park isn't just another run-of-the-mill small town with a farmers market and a famous fort. The city has been awakened to the call of the future and boasts miniature golf courses, tennis courts, and football stadiums. Perfect for fitness freaks and those obsessed sports fanatics. Not to mention, you can go for the gold at Clayton County International Park, the site of the 1996 Summer Olympics. And don't forget the 6-acre swimming lake and a beach, among other hotspots. Rest assured, you won't be forced to spend all your weekends in the swimming pool at your posh apartment. That's precisely why Forest Town is not just another small town--it is so much more. Explore the city for yourself once you settle down here!
