Atlanta's weather is NOT good. It is humid in the summer with nasty bugs and fairly cool in the winter. LA, for all its faults, has great dry weather.
LA has a more exciting nightlife.
LA has a better food scene.
LA has beaches and access to other great beach areas. Sure you can drive to some nice beaches from ATL, but you are still in the South, and it will take you hours. not exactly a day trip.
I'm not a huge LA fan, but Santa Monica (and other beach parts of LA) are actually very pleasant. Atlanta just seems very blah.

On the main screen alone I'm seeing several Atlanta vs - whatever type threads today. We already had to close one down. We're going to ban Atlanta as a topic for a few weeks altogether if folks don't start thinking out decent "vs" topics instead of just dumping whatever drifts into their mind into a thread about Atlanta vs. something. I mean geez, folks.
I think the Houston poster was right. Houston gets bashed alot also as well as Los Angeles. It's actually most sunbelt cities in general. There's this thing on City Data where the people from the "Older and Colder" cities of America really have it out against the sunbelt cities and they can get pretty nasty expressing their disapproval of the rise of these Southern (South East And South West) metropolises.

Los Angeles is fun to vist, but Atlanta is a far better place to live as hundreds of thousands of transplants from Los Angeles have confirmed with their feet for nearly a century.

The funny part is a lot of people (including me) would rather live in Sunbelt cities than the so-called older and cooler cities. People from the so-called older and cooler cities act like it's the other way around. They can keep their old cities, snow and all.

Los Angeles is expensive and somewhat difficult, but you get more things in LA. More quality. I bet the food is better. You have the beach and the mountains(really mountains with snow on the top, not hills). Atlanta get smog just like Los Angeles. The reasons many Californians move to Atlanta is the comparative lower living costs. No very high mountains, and the nearest oceanic beach is 4 hours away when it comes to Atlanta. Atlanta IMHO is an LA/NY wannabe. At least LA has some more things to it.

I beg to differ. I live in metro Atlanta and I am trying to leave. I am here because its cheap. Other than that, LA has more to do, more to see, just more. I had a history teacher from California. He told me(or rather the whole class) the education is California is better.

Maybe the University system is, but definitely not K-12 schools
