Sandy Springs Atlanta sits about 14 miles north of downtown and has recently gathered attention from locals and transplants alike. After being successfully incorporated in 2005 (about 40 years after starting the process in 1966), Sandy Springs branched away from the city of Atlanta and became its own municipality. With a growing population of over 100,000 people, Sandy Springs holds the title of being the second-largest city in the metropolitan Atlanta area. As more people learn about Sandy Springs and the local government plans new attractions and renovations—the population in this up-and-coming area will continue to rise.
Sandy Springs is home to numerous corporate offices, such as IBM and UPS, so tall highrises are juxtaposed with small brick-and-mortar shops. Walk the streets of Sandy Springs, and you’ll see historic architecture with Victorian and mid-century modern influence as well as brand-new construction. Because prestigious schools and luxury shopping are speckled throughout this easy-going neighborhood, this area is in high demand; therefore, housing can be sparse. Luckily, new residential buildings pop up each year to provide residential options for people who love this enticing city. Sandy Springs enjoys the typical sunny Georgia weather, so you’ll find Farmers Markets here year-round.
With plenty of entertainment options and green spaces, you’ll hardly feel the need to leave this little oasis. Sandy Springs provides more than enough dining options and unique activities to keep you busy. If you want to explore other Atlanta offerings, Buckhead is just south of this neighborhood.
