In and around metro Atlanta a 2 bdr apt in a safe area with convenient shopping could run from $700-1,000/mo.

I'm not certain about 'places to hang out'. In Atlanta there are bars and restaurants in different areas. There are opportunities for outdoor recreation and many kinds of sports.

It's a large state with a lot of variety within its' boundaries. Chances are that you can find what you're looking for if you articulate what you envision for yourself a little better. With regard to apartments, hangouts and gas, there are as many answers to those inquiries as there are communities in the state. Also consider that the GA experience runs the gamut from major metro to small town, from subtropical coastline to mountains.

Brasstown Bald is the highest peak in GA at 4784 MSL, which is more than a hill.

????Appalachian Mts are older than the Rockies but I won't hijack this thread with a geological discussion that would not be a priority for the OP.

Whatever. Let's argue about what a "real" mountain is...right? I suppose it's Gov Perdue and the Republicans fault that Georgia doesn't have "real" mountains like other states?

Nearly 4800' MSL is as big or bigger than many "official" mountains in New Hampshire and Vermont, so it qualifies for me.
