The Peach State! If you’ve ever gone through Georgia, then you know it is abound with southern hospitality, peaches, and a booming, diverse economy. There’s mining, textile production, a huge shipping hub, film production with Disney filming a lot of their Marvel movies in Atlanta, tourism, and military bases. It's even home to Super Bowl 53. If Georgia were a country it would be the 28th largest economy in the world, and is one of 15 states to have a AAA credit rating. On top of the scenery and diverse economy, you also have a lot of cities that rank very high in terms of safety – although no shortage of medical alert systems among the older population.
