1. Atlanta! Two important things happened in July 1996: Boris Yelstin was re-elected President of Russia, cementing the roots of democracy, and Atlanta held the summer Olympic Games, paving the way for a dramatic revival of Georgias largest city. Today, Atlanta is the ninth largest metropolitan area, and the sixth largest economy in the United States. It is also the cosmopolitan hub of the South, with a huge population of immigrants from as far away as Argentina and Ecuador. From picturesque Piedmont Park to hip Edgewood Avenue, theres something for everyone in the Souths finest city. The fact that its also home to rap group Outkast, the Atlanta Braves, and the Georgia Aquarium makes it the city to live in the south.
2. Its still downright affordable! Atlanta boasts New York-level cosmopolitanism at Montana level prices. Thanks to Donald Trump and the mid-2006 construction frenzy, a brand new condo on Piedmont Avenue in hip midtown, for instance, will cost you $200,000. A place near Emory University will cost only a little bit more. In fact, the median home sales price in the city is just a little north of $220,000 dramatically low for the countrys sixth largest economy.

7. It is the setting for Gone With the Wind!Georgia is the setting for your moms favorite book and movie Gone With the Wind.

They have character: the areas around Dunwoody, for instance, are home to major historic buildings and homes. Instead of dull, flat suburban homes that all look the same, Atlantas suburbs are perched on top of rolling hills and dense forests.
