When Hoagy Carmichael penned his classic song, “Georgia On My Mind,” it was an ode to a place that keeps calling you back. Plenty of people are hearing that haunting call – 14 of the country’s fastest-growing counties are packed into Georgia, which contains more land than any state east of the Mississippi River. Only Texas has more.
These newcomers are finding available property in one of the nation’s most diverse landscapes. Northern Georgia is draped in the peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains – the famous Appalachian Trail begins, or ends, here on Springer Mountain. Thousands of undeveloped brow acres and valley land with mountain views are scattered across Gilmer, Union and Walker counties. These parcels are ideal for a private retreat, preserved as hunting lands or planted with cropland. Land around Lumpkin County may even contain traces of gold remaining from America’s second gold rush in 1828. And it is all within an hour’s drive of the greatest metropolitan area of the South – Atlanta.
For land buyers who prefer the nip of salt air in the evening, Georgia boasts some 100 miles of shoreline, mostly protected by barrier islands. Some, like Cucumber Island, are preserved forever in their natural state while others such as the Golden Isles and Tybee Island east of Savannah still feature undeveloped building lots within walking distance of the beach.
For those who can’t decide between the mountains and the sea tens of thousands of Peach State parcels remain for sale across the Piedmont plateau and the Coastal plain that cover most of Georgia. Lubricated by more than 70,000 miles of steams and rivers and over four million acres of freshwater wetlands, these lands draw bird hunters from across the country. New buyers can also choose to convert these rural lands into farms as favorite son Jimmy Carter’s parents did when they put their first peanut plants in the ground in the 1920s.
