It always felt like home to me, hard to explain, but I know exactly where you're coming from!
Oh geeze, get off of the ATL 'tip'. There is not much about Atlanta and its suburbs that can closely relate to most of the rest of GA. I live in truly southern South GA and have been all over the state except for maybe in between ATL and Augusta and also the mountain region. I have yet to see any resemblance to the rest of GA in Atlanta for sure. Heck, y'all may as well go the suburban DC or other northeast suburban areas of their cities if you want to discuss anything about Atlanta. With the continued, and seemingly infinite overdevelopment and advent of new cul de sac developments, Atlanta gets less southern every day.

I miss GA so much! Mind you, I am originally from Puerto Rico. I had to move to South Florida due to work, but I've had a really hard time adjusting to this state. There's no such thing as "southern hospitality", and people in my experience here are rude. Atlanta and Georgia as a state have a lot to offer, not to mention the changes of season, which I really loved. I hope to be back really soon. Georgia, please know that you're on my mind

Miss you already... and I hope to see you again soon.
We moved to GA from the Northwest also. It was two years ago, and was going to be a temporary assignment. We decided to stay. Our family is very happy here even though we miss all those we left behind.

I'm from California originally, but after having lived in the Atlanta area since 2005 and southern Virginia from 2001 to 2003 and travelling extensively through Tennessee (mostly Nashville area), I wouldn't dream of living anywhere else. The South is the best region in the country -- nicest climates, landscapes and people.

Very nice to here you say this as a transplant. I am in Texas now and miss Georgia something fierce, had to come for personal family reasons too. But Georgia is my home, and most people feel this way about "home."

One of these days, I will be back!

It's good to hear all of the positive comments about my home state. There are, indeed, "two Georgias".

As for me, I left the sprawling mess of metro Atlanta in June and am happily a Tennessean again -- for the second time!
