About Georgia

Georgia, the “Peach State,” is one of America’s historic 13 original colonies. Its diverse geography spans from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean, and its robust economy encompasses 15 Fortune 500 companies, including Coca-Cola, Home Depot, UPS, Delta Airlines, and CNN. The state capital, Atlanta, is a global cultural center, home to the High Museum of Art, the popular Georgia Aquarium, “The Walking Dead” TV series, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site. Georgia’s thriving music scene has produced pioneering stars for generations, from blues legend Ray Charles to rock icons R.E.M. to hip-hop icons Outkast. And the state’s incredible peaches, peanuts, pecans, and poultry make Georgia a vital hub of American agriculture.
