Where do you want to be in Northwest GA?

You could 'Search' for threads in this forum--***trying to recall the names of towns--Cartersville, Canton, Rome, Dalton and in general 'Blue Ridge'.

For NE GA--'Search'--Gainesville, Athens, Winder, Loganville, Dawsonville
Here's a link:
NE Georgia Tourist Information Centers

If I had to choose I would prefer the northern part of the state.

It really does get 'HOT' in South GA!!! We have drought conditions all across the state--no watering anywhere. I know it must be very difficult for those in South GA--lots of farmers are facing major devastation.

In general North Georgia (North of Atlanta) is more expensive than South Georgia (South of Macon). I consider Macon to Atlanta central Georgia, even though it's north of true center. However, it is neither flat nor mountainous, just nice and hilly, so it makes a good geographical center transition from North to South.

North East Georgia (Clayton, Lake Burton, Dillard, Hiawassee) is more expensive than North West Georgia (Trenton, Ft. Oglethorp, Dalton).

All of these areas, have some reasonably priced homes ($150,000 - 250,000) (except Lake Burton and Hiawassee). Just depends on what you're looking for.

I think it is comparable to Florida--sweltering heat and bugs.

There will be a few weeks with temps in the 30's--generally gets warmer during the days than further north. Ice and snow are rare in this area. Light weight clothing year round---might need sweaters and jackets from mid November to February--that sort of thing.

The seasons change--of course the vegetation in the southern part of the state is different from that in the piedmont/Atlanta and further north--you won't see many red/yellow leaves--or really feel a 'nip' in the air. Or such was my experience. <wry grin>

Thanks for the post. I thought it might be more like Florida the more south you , what about the weather in that area(Hurricanes etc) you mention the temps which I think I can deal with 30s at night as long as it goes above during the day( I am from NH but I dont want to feel like I live there again...lol)..If I were to consider this area(South) what is a good county/cities or towns that way? I like this idea for two reasons...my dad will still be living in SWFL and the temps will be more what I am now accustom too but I am not to concened about the cold as long as it is short term and not "foreva" like in Boston or NH.....
Thanks again
Lisa

Ok now how does S Georgia temps etc compare to N Georgia...Specifically suburbs of Atlanta...like Buford/Woodstock area. The bulk of my questions relates to winter months...spring is spring and summer is summer. I want to know about fall(Oct-Nov) to Winter (Jan-March) I know it gets chilly up N but for how long and it is mostly at night or are there DAYS that it stays that way. I have been told it warms up during the day as well and it can go as high as 70s which would be fine...heck I think 50 in winter is still nice compared too 10* like I used to live in and then some....My blood has thinned out now so I am a bit curious as to what the different area climates are...
Thanks again
Lisa
