Metro Atlanta is a great place to be in the fall! As a former “Michigander” I always loved the fall but it would get cold fast, it seemed like the snowy winter always came sooner rather than later. What I love about living in Georgia is that you still get 4 definitive seasons without all the snow like in the North. We may get a little bit of snow and the temps do get cold but nothing is more beautiful than Fall in Georgia. With such great weather, why would you not want to get out and enjoy some of the many places this area has to offer!
