Considered one of the friendliest states in the United States, you''ll definitely be treated to Southern hospitality in Georgia. You''ll meet lots of folks eager to help and even more who greet you with a smile.
You''ll grin, too, when you find out about the tax situation. The statewide sales tax is only 4 percent. Retirees have tax-exempt status from Social Security income plus another $35,000 in earnings. Low taxes, below-average housing costs and a lower cost of living than most states make the Peach State very appealing. Getting a job anywhere might not be as easy as it was before the recession, but when moving to Georgia you have the choice of applying to some major employers.
Sixteen Fortune 500 companies have their headquarters here including Home Depot, United Parcel Service, Coca Cola, Delta Airlines and Aflac. Major industries include textiles, agriculture and timber. Home to the three P''s, Georgia produces more peanuts, pecans and peaches than any other state. These crops all do well in mild temperatures.
With a consistently moderate climate, Georgians spend a great deal of time outdoors taking advantage of the pristine beaches, magnificent mountains and all that nature has to offer. A dozen national parks including the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge and the Chattahoochee National Forest, plus 60 state parks offer a change of pace for city dwellers.
Beyond outdoor experiences, cultural experiences engage Georgians en masse. Besides its hundreds of museums and galleries, the birthplace of President Jimmy Carter also has burgeoning regional theaters and a thriving music scene. Carter''s Library in Atlanta is definitely worth a visit. Another must-see is the Georgia Aquarium, the largest in the world.
If you''re planning to relocate to Georgia, you''ve got a wide variety of choices in lifestyles. Big city life doesn''t get much bigger than Atlanta, but it also comes with horrendous traffic. Overall the Capitol city ranks seventh in the slowest traffic in the nation. Smaller cities like Marietta might suit you better or you might favor country living. Living in Georgia puts you close to the center of everything.
