13 Things Everyone Who’s Moved Away From Georgia Has Thought At Least Once
Moving away from your home state can be really tough. Especially when it’s a state like Georgia that is thriving with beauty, nature, kind people, and exciting things to do. No matter where you end up in this world, whether moving temporarily or permanently, if Georgia is your home, you’ll absolutely miss quite a few things. Here are a few of those things Georgians end up missing the most.
1. Where’s all the greenery?
If you’ve moved to another state, the chances of you getting the type of greenery you’ll get in Georgia are slim-to-none. Georgia is so rich with trees, especially those huge, leafy green ones, that it’s hard to move away and not miss seeing green.
2. I miss the state parks the most.
Georgia is teeming with natural beauty, especially in their state parks. Between Tallulah Gorge, Cloudland Canyon, Sapelo Island, and Wormsloe Historic Site, there is so much protected allure (over 75,000 acres to be exact) it’s hard to find that anywhere else.
3. NOW the Falcons decide to make it to the playoffs?
If ever you’ve moved away from Georgia and that happens to be the year your sports team makes it to the playoffs, I’m sorry. I’m really truly sorry.
4. The views can’t be beat.
Really, there are so many states out there with views that aren't even half as magical as the ones Georgia has. Whether up high on a mountain or standing at the base of a waterfall, those Georgia views can't be beat.
5. The comfort food just isn't the same.
Most states don't have the type of comfort food that Georgia does, so it's really easy to be nostalgic about such incredibly delicious eats.
6. And you know what? Neither is the produce.
Georgia grows some pretty darn fresh produce, which makes any other produce, nuts, fruit, or legumes grown elsewhere taste a bit different.
7. Since when did rent or a mortgage get THIS high?
Georgia has always been a pinnacle of low-cost living, no matter where you go. While some people pay upwards of $500,000 for a family of four house, you could probably buy your own block in Georgia with that kinda cash.
8. You wouldn’t happen to have sweet tea would you?
Moving out of Georgia will create loads of confusion every time you order a sweet tea. Be prepared to get very serious about your sweet tea instructions moving forward.
9. This state probably doesn’t have half the history and stories that Georgia does.
Georgia is pretty darn old, and totally valuable to the country as a whole. Georgians are proud of their state history and with good reason. Moving elsewhere may not allow for that type of pride, especially for those states that came late in the game (hmph).
10. No, a tomato sandwich doesn’t have meat….or cheese.
Isn't it nice to know that in Georgia you can order a "mater sandwich" and get exactly what you ordered each and every time?
11. We're just the right amount of weird.
Stonehenge? Not quite.
12. Each and every season is beautifully represented.
Georgia has all four seasons. And while some can be a pain in the butt, there is still always a little bit of beauty in each.
13. I just miss…my home.
Truly, there is nothing like leaving the state and coming back to that familiar sign that reminds you of just how much your home state has been on your mind all along.
