Guides to Georgia

We've got Georgia on our minds (We confess, one of us was born there). Georgia, perhaps more than any other southern state, exemplifies the paradox of the "New South": history and progress existing stubbornly together, each one refusing to give in completely to the other. The result is a surprisingly well-blended mix of old-world charm and southern hospitality, with an easy acceptance of 20th century growth and change. Anyone who watched the closing ceremonies of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games will have to agree that something unique is going on here.

During the last decade, Atlanta in particular has experienced major booms in both population and economic development. It is without question the urban center of the southeast, and the paradigm of all that the New South represents. Contrast this metropolitan buzz with Atlanta's more traditional sister Savannah, made notorious by John Berendt's 1994 book, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and you have even further confirmation of the balance of old and new that keeps things so interesting around here.
