Georgia is a well known state, mainly due to its capital city, Atlanta, which is home to the busiest airport in the world, Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. The downtown area is also known for its incredible number of restaurants, theaters, sports teams, and other entertainment. The weather in Georgia is humid subtropical, with a hot and humid summer and a mild winter. Southern Georgia is known for its agriculture and rural areas, witha calm and peaceful way of life. The Peach state lies in the South, where obesity and smoking are much more common than in the North. Those widespread risk factors make Georgia a key state for focusing on long term care services.
