Sitting northwest of Atlanta just outside of the I-285 perimeter is Smyrna, Georgia, home of some 53,000 residents. It has been nicknamed the "Jonquil City" for its numerous yellow jonquil flowers that bloom in gardens and along streets in the spring. You'll find historic craftsman and Victorian homes with hospitable front porches along with modest hardwood-floor bungalows with fenced-in, pet-friendly backyards. Development continues with new home construction and the city's crown jewel mixed-use development: the 48-acre Belmont with its 153 single-family homes.
