Moving from Nashville to Atlanta? Here's What You Need to Know

Are you considering a move from Nashville to Atlanta? If so, you're in for a treat! Atlanta is a beautiful city with plenty of things to do. However, before you decide to uproot your life and move, there are some things you need to know.

In this blog post, True Friends Moving Company will be providing you with a guide to moving from Nashville to Atlanta. We'll discuss the trip itself, the differences in climate, traffic, and what there is to do in Atlanta.

The Trip

The trip from Nashville to Atlanta is relatively easy. There are a few different routes you can take, but the most direct route is via I-75. The drive takes about three hours and fifty minutes without stops and delays, so it's not too bad. Of course, if you're moving during rush hour, it may take a bit longer. But overall, the trip is pretty straightforward.

Traffic

When you get to Atlanta, you'll notice a few things right away. Nashville has an estimated population of around 671,295 people. Atlanta has an estimated population of 512,550 people. However, the city of Nashville covers 526 square miles, whereas Atlanta only covers 134 square miles, meaning Atlanta is far more crowded. Being packed in such a tight area with many more people commuting in from the nearby suburbs can be a bit overwhelming at first. But don't worry, you'll get used to it. If you detest driving in traffic, you can always use Atlanta’s MARTA rail line or the Atlanta Streetcar to get around.

Climate

The second thing you'll notice is the climate. Atlanta is much warmer than Nashville, so be prepared for that. The summers can be brutally hot and humid, but the winters are mild. So, if you're moving from Nashville to escape the cold weather, you'll be pleasantly surprised!

Things To Do

Now that you know a little bit about what life is like in the city, let's talk about what there is to do in Atlanta. In this fantastic city, there's a bit of something for everyone! If you're into sports, Atlanta has a professional team in four of five of the major sports and even has two top-level lacrosse teams and a rugby team. While the city has lacked an NHL team since the Thrashers left, it is still home to the Atlanta Gladiators, who play in the ECHL. If you're more interested in a fun night out on the town, the city is packed with excellent bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a drink and get some fantastic food. If you’re looking for a chill atmosphere or a relaxing evening, then a visit to the Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta Botanical Garden, or Piedmont Park is a great way to spend your free time. No matter your leisure time preferences, Atlanta has something to offer you!
