We just got back from Blue Ridge and we absolutely loved it there! We took a scenic day trip through Young Harris, Hiawassee, Blairsville and thought those areas were great too.

We've been talking about relocating from S. Florida for years and we think the country life in the N. Georgia mountain area might be what we're looking for. The thing is we would want to have year round neighbors who also have young children. We looked at real estate and saw some nice things but not many families or kids around.
Does anyone know of an area there with alot of families or have a recommendation of a good place for a family to move there?

Default Try Clayton

Another trhing to consider is the economy.. North Georgia MOuntains is mostly made up of retirees.. there's not much industry at all.. except for those targeting tourists and retirees. What kind of work will you need to find?

You may want to look at Clayton, GA in EXtreme NW GA.. it's a cute little town... and it has conveniences like major retailers and restaurants along the main highway.

Dahlonega is also a great pick, and is sort of an artists community.
As far as a place with children... well that will be difficult to find because of the economic nature of the GA Mountains... but your best bets for that would likely be CLayton or Dahlonega.

YOu will find more families with children the closer to north metro Atlanta you get.
