I live in Savannah, now, and swear off Atlanta every time I go up there. Traffic is abhorrent. Also, while I'm sure you're familiar with humidity, add in our heat, and you're left with one thing. Misery.

Frankly, the only southern states that I'd recommend someone move to would be North Carolina or Tennessee. North Georgia is passable, if you can find adequate employment. If you think beach life could be your thing, there are many nice parts of Florida. However, always remember, the Atlantic coast is pretty crap compared to the Gulf coast.

Sorry to be so discouraging, but the Southeast is worlds different than the PNW.
I absolutely appreciate the honest response! I think our individual issues with our current locales are fairly similar, traffic, crowding, etc. On the otherhand, I never said my reasoning for investigating the move was based on sound logic...
