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.
With Atlanta less than a half-hour drive away, Tucker residents will never run out of things to do in the big city, from getting up close and personal with all kinds of animals at Zoo Atlanta and the Georgia Aquarium to watching the Braves and Falcons play at Turner Field and the Georgia Dome, respectively. However, residents don't need to leave Tucker to have fun. The town boasts three parks that feature playgrounds, sports fields, lakes and trails, as well as the Tucker Recreation Center.
