This past weekend I went on a walking tour of Serenbe, not knowing what to expect when we arrived, I was ready to drink the kool-aid before leaving.  The whole community is less than an hour from Atlanta, but has organic farms, stables, great eateries, quaint streets, and a focus on environmentalism, community and sustainability.  The air smells good, flowers are lush, people look relaxed, although there was just a touch of The Truman Show.  The founder Steve Nygren lead the tour and his passion is contagious.  If you haven't been, you should go, actually don't go because tourists, cars, and pollution may ruin the little idyll.
