About Georgia

Georgia

Nicknamed the "Peach State" and the "Empire of the South", Georgia is the largest state in the southeast. Its Blue Ridge Mountains in the northernmost part of the state descend into rolling hills and eventually the coastal plain, which is known for its moist, rich pastures.

Georgia is home to a booming economy with 15 fortune 500 companies, and produces much agriculture and goods. Though mainly famous for its peaches, Georgia is a large producer of other products such as cotton, tobacco, poultry, and peanuts, producing twice as many peanuts as the next leading state.

Atlanta, the state's largest city and capital, is the hub of communication and transportation of the Southeast. This historic city was a Confederate stronghold and saw extensive military activity during the Civil War.

The coast of Georgia is only 100 miles long from the Savannah River to the St. Mary's River, and yet the Georgia coast has a higher percentage of waterfront property in those 100 miles than the states of Washington, Oregon and California combined.

Small barrier islands lie just off the coast and feature some of the region’s best beaches. State parks and mountain resorts also boast fine beaches at inland lakes.

There are nearly one hundred miles of Georgia beaches stretching between St Mary’s River and the Port of Savannah. Well-known beaches along the Georgia seacoast include Tybee, St. Mary’s, Jekyll Island, and Cumberland Island National Seashore, Sapelo Island, Sea Island, St. Simons Island, coastal towns, and more.

While the South is known for warm summers, the climate is actually more agreeable than that in many Northeastern states.  For instance, you’ll rarely see snow on the ground in Savannah (that’s reserved for those “100-year storms”).  You will find that winter, spring, and fall are quite comfortable, with moderate temperatures.  The summers are warm, certainly, but no warmer than what you might find in New York.

Georgia’s coastal population is expected to grow 50% by 2030, rivaling the growth rate of Atlanta.
