Georgia is a fantastic option for people looking to enjoy a warmer climate and active-adult living, especially for those who want to avoid the crowds in Florida. Georgia has a lot to offer, including beautiful beaches along the Atlantic coast, stunning mountain ranges, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. The state’s mild climate makes it a great place to enjoy outdoor activities year-round, such as hiking, golfing, and fishing.
In addition to outdoor activities, Georgia also has a vibrant cultural scene, with numerous museums, theaters, and historical sites. The state’s capital, Atlanta, is a hub for art, music, and entertainment, and it’s the perfect place to explore the state’s rich history and culture.
1. Tax breaks for retirees
Georgia is one of 19 states rated by Kiplinger as tax-friendly for retirees. Though it taxes annuities, pensions and money drawn from 401(k)s and IRAs, Georgia does not tax Social Security benefits, and there are no inheritance or estate taxes, sparing heirs what can be a hefty burden at a dark time.
2. Mild climate
Georgia particularly appeals to older adults looking for a warm-weather home that still offers some seasonal variety. Georgia does have four seasons, more or less, but few extremes. Summer temperatures range from lows around 80 degrees to an average high of 95. Winters are brief and mild, generally bottoming out at about 50 degrees.
3. Easy travel
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the busiest airport in the world, according to Airports Council International, a trade association. As the main hub for Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines, Hartsfield-Jackson is an access point to the world. It’s a handy amenity for older adults whose retirement dreams include international travel, or who just want to be confident of plentiful options for flights to and from where the grandkids are.
