i am looking at many cities as a possibility for a move..

i love the mountains..lakes etc...looking into northern georgia..

i have very limited income..so i;d like somewhere affordable...i am not opposed to living in a smaller city as long as there are things to do there and there are supermarkets, etc...a music scene anywhere i live is a must as i dont want to have to drive hours to see a good band (I am a musician myself)....also..i am very liberal and spiritual and would like to live in an area that is accepting

my budget for rent is around $600 for a studio

thank you

I think Asheville, NC might be a better fit for you. Quite liberal and beautiful. Rome too isolated for my taste and it seems to be on a tornado alley.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Blue Ridge fairly liberal? Isn't that a pretty gay-friendly town or am I thinking of somewhere else?

Even though it's not really near mountains, Athens is the obvious choice for music...

Whether you can find a suitably afforable place there might be a trickier proposition.

Yea Athens is a great choice. Probably the most liberal area in N Georgia outside of intown Atlanta. Rent could be doable. There's UGA so lots of students which is good and bad. In one way it can drive up rent prices with all the demand but there are guaranteed to be students that need dirt cheap rent as well so I'm sure those places exist. Only problem is you won't be in the Mtns or right near a lake. You'd have to do a bit of driving.

You can get to the nearest mountains from Athens in just under an hour. Athens itself is in a hilly (piedmont) region.

Not really. North Georgia is still God's Country. Gays are in North Georgia, but they don't "fly the flag", if you know what I mean. Last time I was in a store there, two of the clerks were arguing about their interpretations of the Scripture...
