					Georgia Real Estate - Southern Hospitality
Known as the Peach State, Georgia is the state of southern hospitality. If you prefer the traditional
southern culture, Georgia real estate is certainly worth a look.
The largest state east of the Mississippi, Georgia has a long and glorious history. Civil war
monuments are rife throughout the state as are small towns with turn of the century homes.
Notwithstanding this culture, Georgia is also a very modern state with growing cities such as Atlanta.
The most populous city in Georgia, Atlanta is a growing metropolis. From a sports perspective, the
city has Michael Vick and the Atlanta Falcons, the Braves, basketball, hockey and has even hosted
the Olympics. Raised in 1865 by General Sherman, the city has a newish feel and has grown to a
population of over 3.5 million people. The city can be classified more as a modern city than a
traditional southern one.
If you're looking for a true southern city in Georgia, Savannah is the place. Located on the border with
South Carolina, Savannah is a step back into the past. With tree-lined streets, the city hosts a variety
of architecture from the 18th and 19th century including Victorian homes and old manor. Streets are
dwarfed by huge, ancient Oak Trees. To see Savannah, rent of buy "Midnight in the Garden of Good
and Evil," which was filmed in the city.
Roughly an hour north of Atlanta, Athens is a mix of southern culture and college town. Home to the
University of Georgia, the town has a population of 30,000 plus students. This influx of students gives
the city a liberal feel, which is unique for the south.
