Georgia’s Piedmont region is by far its most populously dense. It offers many jobs career opportunities and a vast amount of employers. The landscape in this area is mainly made up of sparse trees and rolling hills. Its not what I’d call a view, but is more visually appealing than other more industrialized regions in the US, like New York City.

The Blue Ridge area is home of Georgia’s highest mountain ranges. You also may not have known that it holds the state’s richest biological diversity. Blue Ridge is Georgia’s wettest area, receiving more than eighty inches of rain annually on average. Forests cover nearly 90% of the land and makes the area perfect for lumbering.

The Ridge and Valley region, as its name hints, is generally a rocky and mountainous landscape filled with many ridges and valleys. It is located west of the Blue Ridge region. The climate is fair, with mild temperate summers and winters. The job opportunities here are low due to the low population density in this area, but, like the Blue Ridge region, is a nice source of lumber for those working in the industry.

The Coastal Plains is the lowermost part of the state and is located right below the Georgia Fall Line. The land’s sandy surface was caused by the submersion of the entire Coastal Plains during prehistoric times. A large portion of the region being on the coast, this area of Georgia provides the best commercial fishing opportunities available. The climate here is mild, hot in the summers, but cold in the winter.

Georgia’s Appalachian Plateau is located in the state’s most northern west corner, just east of Alabama. Its climate is temperate, with winter temperatures as low as 30 degrees and little precipitation. The Appalachian Plateau’s topography is mostly made up of rocky landscapes and valleys here and there. Lookout Mountain and Cloudland Canyon are located here, making it a great stop for tourists. The plateau also contains vast amounts of coalfields beneath it, making it an excellent area for businesses in the mining industry.
