Information About Atlanta
Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airport is the busiest in the world with more travelers moving through it than any other. In large part, this is due to the geographic location in the United States. In fact, Metro Atlanta is home to at least 14 Fortune 500 companies who see the value and benefits of the low cost of business and the cost of living that Atlanta affords. This makes it a fantastic place to live or operate a business and because the cost of living in Atlanta is also much lower than other cities of this size it is a great place to own a home as well.
The climate in Atlanta is considered mild. We do have 4 seasons, but it doesn't generally stay below freezing for very long. In the winter, the coldest month of January has an average low of 34 and a high of 52. In the summer, during the hottest month of July, the average high is 89 and the low is 71 degrees. Springtime in Atlanta is an absolutely beautiful sight to see. The flowers and trees in bloom here will amaze. Late February to early March we start to see the first signs of spring with cherry blossoms, hyacinths, tulips, and lilies followed by every color of azalea imaginable. For those who know what this means, we are in zone 7b.
This mild climate has led to a good number of what we call "half backers" - that is - people who moved to places like Florida from the north and then decided to move back up, but not all the way back up. Hence the term.
