I guess you can see by the different answers is that it depends. What it depends on is your priorities and what is important to you and your family. Schools, commute, type of home, amenities, access to parks, shopping, libraries, restaurants, recreational activities are all factors that might weigh in your decision. For instance, if you work downtown, Alpharetta would be a long commute. However, if you work in Cumming, Alpharetta would be a very good commute and also has excellent schools, etc. It will also depend on your price point as some of these areas can be quite pricey. Usually, the further out from town or inside the perimeter you go, the more house you will get for the money. There are lots of different cities here that could be ideal for your particular relocation, again will just depend on what is important to you and your family.
