Many apartments in southeast, Riverdale/Jonesboro area are well-suited to those looking for a spot outside of Atlanta. Both of these towns are located in Clayton County, close to Interstate 75. According to the 2000 Census, Riverdale has a population of just over 12,000 people. About half of the properties in this town are rentals, making it a terrific place to search for an apartment. The proximity to Atlanta is another great perk. Once spelled "Jonesborough," the town of Jonesboro is a mere 12 miles from Atlanta, and it is the County Seat of Clayton County. This region has many annual events that offer a sense of community, coupled with small town charm. Another town located in this area is Stockbridge. Although this city is situated in Henry County, it is the same distance from Atlanta as both Riverdale and Jonesboro. These three places all have plenty of rentals to offer and each has a unique, suburban atmosphere.
