The northern part of the state is in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a mountain range in the vast mountain system of the Appalachians.

Athens, Georgia is continually ranked as one of the "Best Places in America To Retire".

There are plenty of things to do including golfing, bicycling, wine tasting, and listening to live music.
