Georgians do a lot of things really well. We’re proud of our state, and we work hard to make it special. There are quite a few things, however, that we happen to do better than everyone else. We don’t mean to brag, but we are proud of our accomplishments, and we’re ready to shout them from the rooftops. Check out a few things that Georgians do better than everyone else:
1. Kill 'Em With Kindness.
Georgians know Southern Hospitality. That’s why “ma’am”, “sir”, and “please” are such huge parts of our vocabulary.

3. Stay Loyal Through All the Ups and Downs.
Sure, some of our teams haven’t been champions nationally in while, but they’re always champions to us.
