If you have been searching for Atlanta homes for rent, going off the beaten path can have its rewards. Sometimes being located outside the downtown area can be a good solution when it comes to finding a rental property. Loganville would make a great place to live. This town is not especially close to Atlanta, but it isn’t so far that commuting is out of the question. Another town that is out of the main circuit is Johns Creek. Located 30 miles north of Atlanta, this city is on the banks of the Chattahoochee River. With a population of over 70,000 people, the town is known for having a strong public school system and it is also just a short drive from Lake Lanier. Although Johns Creek is a bit outside of Atlanta, it is also the tenth-largest city in Georgia, meaning that it has plenty of amenities right there in town. It is also situated ten miles west of I-85, making a trip into the downtown Atlanta area an easy ride.
