Metro Atlanta residents  have community pride, and that fact certainly showed in the most recent Best of Atlanta poll. The winner of best ZIP code goes to 30060, so congratulations to Marietta. The win isn't surprising due to Marietta's charm, family-friendly vibe and vibrant restaurant scene. Remember our Best of Atlanta burger story a few weeks back? A Marietta restaurant claimed second runner up. Looking for a great cocktail? Marietta is serving up some of the best. If you haven't explored this part of town, then you're overdue. 

Hot on Marietta's trail was 30030, belonging to Decatur. Decatur's food scene just won't stop. Just recently Decatur won the Best of Atlanta MARTA station because of all the city has to offer within a close proximity.
