Some of the apartments in south, East Point/College Park areas are a nice pick in terms of their location and proximity to Atlanta. East Point is just to the southwest of the downtown area, making it a good home base for those who commute to the city for work. Recreational amenities in this city include things such as play areas for children, tennis and basketball courts and a variety of sports leagues. College Park is also in this area, and it has a bit better access to the highway system. With a population of just over 20,000 people, it has a small town feel with all the benefits of a big city nearby. There are numerous apartment buildings located throughout College Park, each with their own unique flavor. Located near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Interstates 85 and 285, getting in and out of this city is not a problem, whether you want to travel regionally or just to downtown Atlanta. This town was named by Atlanta magazine as one of the "Best Places to Call Home" in 2003.
