Many people who consider living in the Newnan, Georgia area have jobs in Atlanta and want to find a family-friendly suburb that offers a laid-back atmosphere that is close enough to the city to commute and have a little fun. At just under 40 miles, Newnan offers the perfection solution.
Ways to Get There
Interstate 85 runs through both cities and offers the quickest and most direct route most of the time. It will take you through the middle of Atlanta and its northeast suburbs on through to South Carolina. Another option is to take Interstate 85 to Interstate 285, also known as “The Perimeter,” because the road circles around Atlanta. This allows you to get to destinations on the city’s outskirts without getting into Downtown and Midtown traffic.
