If the idea of living in a close-knit community within a short drive of a major metropolis appeals to you, a home for rent in Tucker, Ga., may fit the bill. Tucker is located 14 miles northeast of Atlanta and is bisected by Main Street, which is lined with independent businesses and oozes charm.
Things Tucker Renters Should Know
For prospective residents with children, Tucker is part of the DeKalb County School District.
If you'd prefer to travel via bus or rail than car, there's one important name you should remember: MARTA. But MARTA isn't a person - it stands for Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, and it serves as your ticket to Atlanta and beyond.
People eager to travel beyond MARTA's reach should head to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport or the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport.
