Welcome to Smyrna
A picturesque Atlanta enclave with stunning architecture and family vibes.
Nestled within the inner ring of Atlanta’s surrounding suburbs, Smyrna is one of Georgia’s fast-growing neighborhoods. Only 10 miles from downtown Atlanta, Smyrna is a city in its own right, with a wealth of luxe amenities, lush landscaping and stunning wild beauty, and a chic live-work-play setting. Sunny daffodils pop up everywhere in the spring, from private gardens to all along busy streets, infusing this pretty town with a bright, cheerful energy. The abundance of these sweet flowers has even landed Smyrna a nickname – Jonquil City.
Smyrna residents affectionately refer to the town as Smynings, an homage to nearby Vinings. Smyrna is much larger than its neighbor and hosts some rather important residents – perhaps you’ve heard of a little team by the name of the Atlanta Braves? Smyrna’s thriving real estate market shines with a full range of designs and architectural styles, including Craftsman, Victorian, mid-Century, traditional ranches set on sprawling, leafy lots, and sleek, modern townhomes with urban flair.
