Escaping Atlanta's Urban Sprawl

Geogria residents are moving into the mountain forests of Western North Carolina to escape Atlanta's urban sprawl.

"People moving to Western North Carolina's expanse of mountain forests are increasingly Georgians escaping the struggles of urban Atlanta rather than vacationing Floridians looking for cooler climes.The influx of Georgia residents is evident in mountain counties on or near the state line such as Macon, Cherokee, Clay and Jackson."
