According to U.S. News & World Report, Atlanta, Georgia’s capital, is attracting newcomers from around the country, and people are looking to this part of the country for culture and commerce like never before. A dense tree canopy prompts Atlanta’s reputation as the “city in a forest.” The Chattahoochee River that traverses the metro area, and Stone Mountain, the world’s largest chunk of exposed granite, located just northeast of the city proper, also offer a quick escape from any urban anxiety. Home to dozens of parks and gardens, miles of trails and an abundance of nature preserves and green amenities, Atlanta is best explored outdoors—this city actually has a higher percentage of tree coverage than the national average. The weather in Atlanta is comfortable nearly year-round, with mild seasons and an average annual temperature of 61 F. The median price for a home is about $262,000 and rent will set you back about a $1,000 a month. Although it might seem overwhelming to move to a new city, especially one as large and diverse as Atlanta, it can be an adventure getting to know the unique culture of its many neighborhoods, restaurants, bars and social venues.

Lancaster County is in southern Pennsylvania, on the Susquehanna River. Just 60 miles west of Philadelphia and 50 miles east of the state capitol, Harrisburg, Lancaster, the county seat, is known for its red-brick Central Market building. North of the city, Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum evokes a traditional German settlement. Southeast, in Amish farm country, the town of Strasburg is home to the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania’s vintage trains. Farther south is riverside Susquehannock State Park.
Lancaster offers a balance between natural and commercial spaces that residents appreciate. Expansive farms rub elbows with manicured suburbs, which lead right into the bustling city. A short drive can take one through each of these environments. Each area boasts its own unique groups of inhabitants: farmers, families, college students and young professionals. From close-knit church communities to the indie coffee shop scene, Lancaster holds something for everyone.
U.S. News & World Report ranked Lancaster as the No. 1 place to retire. The median home price is $196,000 and median monthly rent is $950.
Yes, you will see Amish folks riding around in horse-drawn carriages, or hanging wash on clotheslines behind their farms. But Lancaster itself, and the other markets WGAL covers, are modern cities with plenty to do.
