What do I need to know about living in Atlanta?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Atlanta, they said:

"Before retiring in Atlanta, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is higher than the national average. They should also research the different neighborhoods to find the one that best suits their needs and budget. Additionally, they should familiarize themselves with the local climate, which can be hot and humid in the summer and cold in the winter. Expats should also consider the availability of healthcare and other services in the area. Finally, they should research the local culture and customs to ensure a smooth transition into their new home," said one expat in Atlanta.
