What You Should Know Before Moving to Atlanta

Atlanta, GA is a city that exudes hospitality and charm. On paper, it’s one of the largest cities in the South, but it still feels like a small town thanks to its many suburbs and diversity.

The stereotype about life in the South moving at a slower pace is generally true throughout the region. In most cases, this is a welcome change for those who might be moving from more hectic cities. However, whenever the rare snowstorm hits Atlanta, the whole city slows to a crawl so be sure to get where you’re going ahead of time!

But snow is definitely not the norm in Atlanta. In fact, even during the middle of winter, the average low temperature in Atlanta is above freezing. This does mean the summer months are all the warmer – and more humid.

How to Get Settled into Atlanta, Georgia

Our Atlanta General Manager, Ed Haeussler suggests any Atlanta newcomer to spend some time studying a local map of the city. At various points throughout Atlanta, street names will suddenly change. This is why many locals will give directions based on landmarks, so get to know the malls and other landmarks!

Once you’ve gotten your bearings, it’s time to dive in and enjoy all that Atlanta has to offer. Atlanta’s diverse culture has given rise to all sorts of restaurants, breweries, museums and other attractions to see and enjoy.

Some of the “hidden gems” throughout the Atlanta area include Five Points – an eclectic neighborhood just northeast of downtown, riding the MARTA to enjoy a meal at the Varsity downtown or enjoying a quintessential Southern meal at Mary Mac’s Tea Room!
