The Mercer House, Savannah

Peaches and a slow pace of life come to mind when we think of Georgia, don't they? Well, surprise, surprise. Atlanta has emerged as a major leading metropolitan city in the United States with numerous corporations either moving their national headquarters or starting their businesses there. Why? Location, location, location. 

Perfectly situated on the lower East Coast of the U.S., Georgia offers international corporations easy access to and from Europe, while still making trips to Los Angeles, New York, or just about anywhere else a snap. Other than the occasional hurricane, Georgia also offers some of most pleasant climate year round without having to run to nearby Florida for a sunshine fix. Great hotels and restaurants are in abundance not to mention plenty of history, culture, art and entertainment to tickle anyone's fancy. And yes, it is a slower pace of life for most, but who couldn't use a little more of that in her life?

Historical Notes: Atlanta is the only major American city ever destroyed by war. In 1864, Union General William T. Sherman’s army burned all of the railroad facilities, almost every business and more than two-thirds of the city’s homes to the ground during his infamous “March to the Sea.”
