Smyrna, Georgia is a town of 81,000 people and is situated in a close, convenient proximity to Atlanta. Long a primarily residential area, there are large businesses headquartered on the outskirts of the town. Also known as the ‘Jonquil City', you can expect to see thousands of the flowers in the main district each spring. Smyrna has undergone extensive revitalization in recent years, and the Market Village area downtown reflects this planning. More than a mere attraction, Market Village houses the town's huge library along with restaurants and shopping. While areas such as this are walkable, Smyrna, in general, is car dependent and you should keep that in mind when you begin the search for your Smyrna apartment.
