Moving to Georgia?

So you’ve decided to move to Georgia. Great choice! The first thing that springs to mind when you think of the Peach State (besides peaches, of course) might be plantation houses and scenes straight out of Gone with the Wind. But while there’s still plenty of antebellum charm to be found there, Georgia is firmly planted in the modern day. From its bustling cities to its natural beauty, there’s plenty in Georgia to make life sweet.

Even better, Georgia offers an affordable lifestyle. Housing costs tend to be below those in the rest of the nation, meaning you can get more home for your money. And with businesses headquartering in Atlanta, the job market’s as bustling as the city itself.

You’ll find lots to love when you make Georgia your home. Just remember -- tea is always sweet, and so are the people. Southern charm is a real thing, so learn to speak it fluently!
