West Cobb, as the area to the west of I-75 in Cobb County is affectionately known, is a land of new and historic communities, recognized as one of the premier areas in the nation. West Cobb is known for its nice neighborhoods, comfortable homes, great schools, outdoor activities, and of course, being a short commute away from Atlanta. In fact, the explosive growth of the Metropolitan Atlanta area over the last 50 years has transformed Cobb County from a largely undeveloped rural region, into a charming and delightful suburban landscape. Cities such as Marietta, Kennesaw, Smyrna, the Vinings-Smyrna (aka "Sminings") area and many others are known for their family-friendly neighborhoods and subdivisions that feature lifestyle activities such as swimming, tennis, golf and even equestrian sports. Its proximity to the city of Atlanta, numerous activities, spacious lots and charming communities make West Cobb homes highly desirable by both Georgia natives and people relocating to the Atlanta area.
