What’s Nearby
Ga. 400 runs next to the station, but you can only enter the station if you are traveling southbound, and can only re-enter Ga. 400 going northbound. Next to the station is also the Dunwoody Station apartment community and the rest of the surrounding area is residential and fairly suburban.   It is a 25-minute walk to the next MARTA station (Sandy Springs) where there is shopping and restaurants.
