About North Georgia

We hear people mention "beautiful North Georgia Mountains" so often that we often take them for granted. From young to old, newcomers to life long residents, the area's scenic beauty eventually gets taken for granted to some degree. Because the natural scenic beauty is so often the focus, we sometimes forget about the other aspects that make this region such a spectacular place to live, work, and visit.

The mountains of North Georgia lie in the southern range of the Appalachian Mountains. This unique geographic position provides the area with a near perfect climate. Winters are cold enough for frequent light snow events but seldom produce paralyzing blizzards or dangerous cold snaps. The elevation and latitude keep the summers warm but bearable. Severe spring and summer storms and tornadoes usually fizzle when approaching the mountain areas. Subsequently, seldom does the North Georgia Mountain region see these devastating weather events.

The people are the greatest asset of the North Georgia Mountains. The integrity and hard work ethic of mountain people is known far and wide. People here often leave their doors unlocked, and still stop to help strangers. The region benefits from several colleges and universities, and highly rated accredited public schools.

Besides the many families that have made this area their home for generations, the area has become a haven for new comers in the last couple of decades. This is due to the scenic beauty, the people, affordable real estate prices, available modern conveniences, and proximity to key facilities in nearby Atlanta and Chattanooga. Recent commercial development has brought many of the conveniences of larger metropolitan areas to our region. These many aspects, combined with a very low crime rate, make our North Georgia Mountain region irresistible to residents and visitors alike!
