Come to Tyrone, Georgia - We're Better than Atlanta!
Although that seems like a bit of a blanket statement, it really is true. While Atlanta is a nice place to live, and the cost of living is relatively low, you have to look over your shoulder at certain points in the day -- so there's the fear factor. However, Tyrone doesn't have that issue. In fact, this town has virtually no crime at all, which attracts many people to live here. It also attracts developers who are satisfied with the low-crime rate and high land value. The lure of the land has prompted multiple developments to be constructed in the area and also a few renovations of older buildings. What this means for future residents is the prospect of getting top dollar for their lower than market value homes.
Moving to Tyrone
If you're thinking of looking for homes to rent or furnished apartments in Tyrone, this is the perfect time to do so! In fact, you'll also find studio apartments and some apartments with utilities paid, so you can save up. However, you need to have the appropriate documents to have the best chance of actually securing a place. Although the requirements vary from place to place, here are some common documents that you will almost always need on hand: bank statements, lease or rental agreement, reference contact details, pay stubs / tax return, ID and social security card.
Some of the areas that interest new residents (besides the middle of the town near Joel Cowan Parkway) are Dogwood Trail and Persimmon Creek (located near Persimmon Drive). Both are highly residential areas that are just within earshot of local amenities and Tyrone's city center. These aren't exactly neighborhoods, but they are certainly interesting places to live in Tyrone. Finding an apartment in these areas is surprisingly easy and there are quite a number to choose from.
So, What's There to Do Around Here?
If you're reading this and thinking, "Hmm...I really want to see this place, but what if I get bored," you're thinking along the wrong lines. In fact, Tyrone has too much to do for some. Granted there aren't a lot of shopping malls here, there really doesn't have to be, I mean it is about 40 minutes from Atlanta. But let's not write Tyrone off just yet.
Unlike most cities that are only lucky enough to have one or two lakes, Tyrone has more than 5. The most popular lakes in this area are Lake Tyrone, Adams Lake, and Farrs Lake. Residents come to these spots and enjoy fishing during the spring and fall. Oh yeah, and there's boating during the summer.
Driving through Tyrone, you'll spot a number of restaurants around, and the locals have a knack for international cuisine. If you like steak and freshly grilled seafood, you might want to reserve a table at Nikko Japanese Steakhouse.
There are a host of parks, fitness centers, jogging trails, biking trails, and night clubs in Tyrone, as well, so there's not a hope in heck of getting bored.
