The heart of America’s southeast, the Peach State is the best place to unite with nature, embrace history, and enjoy the busy hum of urban life.
East of the Mississippi River, it’s the largest state with gorgeous landscapes from the peaky mountains on the north to the soft warmness of the Atlantic Ocean on the southeast. Atlanta, the capital and largest city of the Peach State, was home to Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement. Another Georgia’s capital and its oldest city, Savannah, charms its visitors with narrow paved lanes and southern allure.
The state is one of the best for business in the U.S. – it’s home to such international giants as Delta Air Lines, Home Depot, CNN, and Coca-Cola (the latter offers a museum you’ll find on every must-see list around Georgia). It’s also a popular student state thanks to dozens of local colleges, including the University of Georgia - the best and oldest of the research institutes in the country.
