"Absolutely awful area"

If you want to go somewhere where there are always a ton of housing impaired trying to sell you crack, this is the area for you. Train runs through the middle of the town and get constant whistles. Air traffic from the airport makes this place remarkably noisy. There is pretty much nothing anywhere in fairburn. Traffic is a nightmare in the morning and evening. Drive-by's are all too regular, and this place is generally one you don't want to be out in the dark in.

"Fairburn - a lovely place to live!"

As the quote (almost) goes, “Paradise can be found on the back of horses, in books and…” in the landscapes of Fairburn.

Fairburn has ‘it’ all —breathtaking horse pastures, neat book shops, and lovely landscapes. And, there is more. It is located near a few of my favorite things to do and see in the Atlanta area. A trip to the area is far from complete without a visit to The Historic Green Manor Restaurant - a grand and quintessentially southern, mansion-turned-restaurant, complete with wrap around veranda and gardens. The food there is irresistible. But Fairburn is probably best known as the home of the annual “Georgia Renaissance Festival”, a re-creation of a 16th century European country fair, with countless re-enactment shows and shops representing the period. This fun festival brings about 200,000 people to Fairburn each year.

The neighborhoods there are truly LOVELY, attracting an eclectic mix of homeowners. It is home to professionals, entrepreneurs, airline pilots, politicians – and farmers. In fact, I have decided that ‘when I grow up’ or win the lottery, I too will buy a palatial, multi-million dollar home off of Senoia Road or along Westbridge Road. But for now, I would settle for something smaller but equally attractive for a fraction of that cost -- as long as it is in Fairburn!

Boasting a whopping 6,000 residents (excluding festival visitors, of course), it’s a quaint and charming hometown, for now. Be warned. Fairburn is growing quickly, so move there while you can!
