I agree that Atlanta, Athens, and Savannah are pretty much the only decent cities in Georgia.

*sigh*

After almost ten years on this forum the one thing I simply cannot understand is posters that feel compelled to post definitive opinions on a place when they are clearly coming from a place of complete ignorance.
There are some wonderful cities in this state, and I can at least offer this opinion coming from a position of having experienced them.
Spend a week bouncing around some of the wonderful communities north and east of Atlanta: Dahlonega, Blue Ridge, Hiawassee, Young Harris, Clayton, Jasper, Ellijay, Rome, Social Circle, Madison, Greensboro and Washington.
Then spend some time in the corridor between Atlanta and Columbus and visit LaGrange, Newnan and Pine Mountain.
After that, venture south to the charming communities of Moultrie and Thomasville.
The Coastal Empire offers more than just Savannah as well; check out Brunswick and the Golden Isles, St Marys and Darien. Statesboro deserves some consideration as well.
Do all that and then tell me that the state is bereft of decent cities.

I agree with this when you are talking about cities with more than 100K, but there are some very nice smaller cities and towns in North Georgia. As much as South GA gets a bad rap, Thomasville is definitely a bright spot and a very livable city.. and pretty much is part of the larger Tallahassee, FL metro area.

For some people, where to live is a matter of whether they will be accepted simply for who they are. You think it's any accident that gay communities almost always are in the hearts of cities and not small towns?

Have you been to

Blue Ridge
Jasper
Ellijay (aka Elligay)
Clayton

lately LOL?

Gay people are drawn to urban areas for the same reasons that straight people are.

Blue Ridge, Jasper, Ellijay, and Clayton.. All wonderful small towns, and all places where I could probably easily live. But gay friendly? Not sure I would go that far. I doubt they are gay hostile, but I dont think they will be throwing any gay pride parades anytime in the near futire

If you've been to any of these places or know gay people that live there, it's pretty clear that they're all very accepting. I don't think they necessarily have to throw a parade to prove that.
