Smyrna, Georgia is one of metro Atlanta's most popular spots to live. Located off of I-285 between I-20 and I-75, Smyrna lies northwest of Atlanta and is just 15 minutes away from downtown. In recent years, Smyrna, GA's own downtown area has been revitalized and transformed into the Village Green, a mixed-use development that's home to a community center, a municipal library, beautiful landscaping and outdoor concerts. The pedestrian-friendly Market Village attracts visitors to downtown Smyrna with its special events and festivals, including the St. Patrick's Day festival said to be the largest in metro Atlanta. Another notable event in downtown Smyrna, Georgia is the annual Spice of Life - Food & Culture celebration in September. The Atlanta suburb is known as the Jonquil City because of the countless yellow blooms that pop up there every spring. Smyrna's Welcome Center is housed in Aunt Fanny's Cabin, once a restaurant prized for its Southern cooking. The Silver Comet Trail, a former rail line turned into a multi-use recreational trail, begins at Smyrna, GA, and connects with the Chief Ladiga Trail at the Alabama/Georgia border.
