still, give me georgia, and i can take a trip down to florida to visit tampa/orlando or even miami in a quick trip. (once made it from atl->mia in about 9hrs :P)



you don't really seem to be that familiar, honestly. (silly sunday drinking laws? clubs closing at 1:30?)
My bad, was in Georgia or near Atlanta before 2011. I guess they caught up to modern times recently in reference to having a beverage on Sunday.

"Beer is legally sold on Sunday in all the counties of Georgia as of 2011, except the areas of Albany, Americus, Brooklet, Brunswick, Comer, Elbert County, Flovilla, Fort Oglethorpe, Garden City, Kingland, Lovejoy, Oglethorpe, Palmetto, Pendergrass, Portal, Sumter County, Swainsboro, Tunnel Hill, Varnell, Waycross, Whitfield County and Woodbine."

The 10 Most Visited Cities in the US by Foreign Travelers - EscapeHere

Orlando the top U.S. destination in 2014, N.Y.C second
Orlando in 2014 became the first U.S. city to attract more than 60 million visitors in a single year.

By domestic tourist, yes Atlanta is on the list as top cities visited, which is understandable.

Everyone has opinions and I have reached out to people that live in Atlanta and people that have moved from Miami to Atlanta. Thought of moving there in the past because my parents live on the Tenn/Georgia line. They told me to stay in Florida if you are use to South and Central Florida. Not knocking it, I am sure there are people that love both states and cities. If you can make a lot more money in Atlanta, I'm sure the move would be beneficial, but if same salary, I don't see the appeal.
I am one of those people to which you refer. Whenever I recall the life I had in Miami, I have to get on my knees and kiss the Georgia earth beneath me.

California is pretty and progressive, but can most of the USA afford it. So many people leaving since they can't afford it. Oh and you call those beaches near Savannah. That water and shoreline can not compare to our beaches. Its laughable.

The problem with Florida is that we pick a governor on off Presidential years. We don't get that high of a turnout, where we end up with Governor Scott.
I've never understood why this would make a difference to anyone but a raging alcoholic.

It would be nice to have a mimosa before 12:30 on Sunday, though.

Buy your champagne on Saturday, drink 'em at home. Worked for me all those years.

I'm no fan of the Blue Laws, either, but my point was that in terms of interfering with my life choices they weren't even a blip on the radar.

I miss the true blue laws. Sure its more convenient to be able to shop on Sunday, but I miss the peaceful, traffic free Sundays. I'm sure a lot of people in retail miss their Sundays off.

That's a terrible reason to leave laws alone.

Also not everyone works a M-F schedule. For one of my friends, Sunday is her Friday and she has Monday and Tuesday off so Sunday is a perfect day to grab a bottle of wine or whatever. But according to you it only affected raging alcoholics.
