It might sound wierd, but I moved to Athens, GA after I graduated from college. I moved there from Fairfield, Iowa and so Georgia sounded really cool, plus, my best friend had a great house out there (he was there to attend UGA).
I had a degree in graphic design and I couldn't find work anywhere. I did a few temp jobs here and there and I ended up getting a job delivering newspapers at night.
The music scene was fantastic. I really enjoyed the down town area.
I had to leave and go back somewhere with more opportunities.

RetirementWe are planning to sell our house in Lawrenceville, GA because we are now empty nesters and need to downsize. Our house is already on the market. We enjoy cities that are cultural and want to get out of Atlanta Metro traffic. How is Athens for retirement? Pros and cons?
