Living in Georgia
Georgians enjoy a quality of life that would be hard to find in any area across the nation. Lower taxes and a lower cost of living enable you to do more with the money you make and maintain a higher standard of living. Want to buy a house? You can actually afford quite a lot of house here, with lower real estate prices than markets like Boston or Miami - not to mention California. Like to have a little fun on your off hours? Enjoy it all, from art museums to rock climbing. Crave the change of seasons? Try all four of ours, each more spectacular than the last.
Georgia also offers residents world-class healthcare. Throughout the state, you can find quality medical and dental care in large and small communities via 151 general hospitals, more than 15,000 doctors and nearly 6,000 dentists. Atlanta's hospitals offer you some of the most advanced care and facilities nationwide while our four outstanding medical schools, including Emory University, Morehouse School of Medicine, Mercer Medical School and Medical College of Georgia, attract some of the top specialists from around the country.
Within Georgia you'll also find an unlimited supply of recreational and cultural opportunities. Enjoy boating, camping, fishing, golf, hiking, picnicking, swimming, tennis or just relaxing against Georgia's many scenic backdrops. Georgia is a 57,906-square-mile playground filled with natural beauty and immaculate resources.
If joining in the cheers of world-class sporting events sounds like fun, Georgia is the place for you. In addition to hosting the '96 Olympics, two Super Bowls and numerous NCAA Final Four tournaments, Atlanta boasts four professional teams: the Braves (MLB), Falcons (NFL), Hawks (NBA) and Thrashers (NHL). The Georgia Force, an arena football team; the Atlanta Silverbacks, a well-followed men's soccer team and other athletic organizations around the State offer many opportunities for you to join in the excitement of athletics - no matter what the sport.
Georgia is also a true center for the arts. Atlanta ranks third in the United States in music production and has two resident ballet companies, a symphony orchestra that has won more Grammys than any other U.S. symphony, several permanent theater groups, an opera company and a world-class art museum ? the High Museum of Art.
From the mountains to the coast, from ballet to baseball, Georgia offers you a livability and quality of life that can help you achieve your dreams.
