Anyone ever wanted to pack up and move away?

I have been feeling this way lately. So has my husband. You think maybe we need a vacation?

I love atlanta but I always wonder what it would be like to live up north

I felt that way, at times, while I lived in Atlanta. I would take a vacation, come back, and the feeling would return.

I moved last summer to Dallas, and so far it's been a good experience there are things about Atlanta that I miss, but it's also a lot of fun getting to know a new city and state.

It's called WANDERLUST and it's perfectly natural. The greatest disappointment/faillure in lfe is never getting to explore other people, places and things. You may very well be living in the best place for you right now, but you'll never know it if you don't move around and experience what life is like in other places. The good thing about modern technology and mobility is that we're not tied down to one place our entire lives. And if we make a mistake a leave one place for one we find less likeable, it's a lot easier to turn around and go back home -- unlike the old days, when immigrants got on a boat in Europe and set out for the new world, or when settlers packed up and headed west in th 1800s knowing they'd never see loved ones again.

Aah, not exactly.
Wanderlust is the desire to travel- meaning to go and see, but you end up back "home" (a vacation). That's always been my interpretation.
Which is quite different from the OP's statement- "pack up and move".

Colder and snowy in the winter. Winter lasts much, much longer. Cooler and drier in the summer.

Overall higher cost of living and higher taxes, and depending on the specific state/city, could be MUCH higher. Older and generally more expensive housing stock.

Roads suck...potholes and poor pavement is the general rule, especially this time of year.

Most people are much less religious and generally more left leaning politically, but depends on specific area.

People don't worship guns, at least in the big cities.

In the northeast, professional sports are big. College sports are not mentioned.
