Hello everyone, We are going to be visiting North Ga and South TN in mid July. Can anyone give me there opinion on what areas would be the best for a possible move. My DH and I are looking to move around those areas. We have a middle school age child, so schools are important. I homeschool now and will possibly to entering him in school when we make the move. Jobs are not so important at this time. We will both have taken early retirement and not in need for employment as of yet.

We are looking for pros and cons of both areas. i.e. taxes, state tax, personal taxes.

In GA, we were going to make a trip around Dallas, Acworth, Cartersville.
In TN, possible around Chattanooga, Soddy Daisy, Dunlap.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. We are in Florida now. I have no complaints. We would just like to enjoy the 4 seasons and possible snow. We have both lived here for about 40 years and would like a nice change.

Thank you for any input that you can give us. Both good and bad.

I live in Rome and love it. College town, good schools, outdoor activities and some nice parks. Dependant on what nieghborhoods you are in as to crime levels, but overall a very nice town. Feel free to contact me for any more info on this area. I know N. Ga pretty well.
