The weather is pretty good most of the year. Milder winter than northern states. Milder summers than the southwestern states.

Mountains in the northern part of the state, coast to the east.

Georgia does have a comfortable climate but the most important thing to me is to live among the 'Open minded' and those who require a high quality of life.

The natural resources/environment is pleasant--not as 'Spectacular' as the Rocky Mts and California coast but the Appalachian Trail starts in the Smoky Mts of North Georgia and the coastal area--'The Golden Isles' is 'Good Enough' ---the Atlantic Ocean is not the Pacific--not something the Beach Boys would have written songs about --LOL--it is an ocean and we have some nice lakes...

Which part of GA have you chosen? The entire state is growing and unless you are headed to the Fort Stewart area --close to the FL line and pretty much 'in the middle of nowhere'--you should enjoy your stay.

Most people who have lived in metro Atlanta want to go further out--less hectic and there are some great areas north, south, east and west not far from the epicenter that is Atlanta.

One more thing--if it is very important to you to be able to buy alcohol on Sunday----you may have to 'Wait'--we are still considering this piece of legislation--there are small things like that that upset some transplants ---LOL. I don't care about that myself. shrug--

LOL--At least in most parts of GA --if you have need of a ''Sex Toy" you can buy one without fear of arrest---in neighboring Alabama that is a big issue--can't say why--Alabama is strange about some things--but not a bad 'Neighbor'.

Moderation, Wisdom and Justice--that is the state motto--something like that at least.

Well, I pretty much love the North Georgia Mountains; don't much care for Atlanta, and find South Georgia fine enough.

What I love about North Georgia is that the people are friendly, believe in God, but are not flakey - like out in California, New Jersey, lots of Florida, and other real liberal states. The mountains are lush with thick green foliage, large trees, streams, and an abundance of life! I like the peace, quiet, solitude and seclusion that I can find up there. I like playing in the fresh streams and rivers. Good fishing, too. People still know how to ride and care for horses up there. I just happen to think it's one of the prettiest places on earth.

Although I do not live there now, I can tell you I loved the people, lots of Southern Hospitality, nothing is better than good old southern cooking, the history, shopping, Savannah, and St Simon's Island. I loved the unpredictable weather, thunder showers in the middle of the day and crab soup, crab cakes...oh yeah, I already mentioned the food

Hi Snowflake,

We rarely have snow & ice. The winters are mild, and though the summers can get hot, it isn't unbearable. There are few very hot days. Granted, we have had some tornadoes, they aren't nearly as bad as most states. And no earthquakes except a rumble twice in my whole life.

The people are nice and friendly. Ga. is the best state in the U.S.

Things to love - small town south and the mom/pop unique shops in the small towns, great BBQ, fried catfish, boiled peanuts (Southern caviar), southern expressions, rolling fields early in the morning and at dusk, our one-stop shopping at a local gas station where you can fill up your tank, buy your bait, and get great fried chicken and biscuits, down home folks, the fragrance of tea olive blooming in the late winter and gardenia in the summer. Yep, love it all.
