10 Reasons To Retire In The North Georgia Mountians: Reason 1

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Partners 290057

A good friend and business associate Art Miller who is also a Realtor here at Blairsville Realty, has been heavily invested in writing an article for the Blairsville Union County Chamber of Commerce about the 10 Best Reasons To Retire in the North Georgia Mountains. I asked Art if he wouldn’t mind if I posted his thoughts here on The Porch so that you will know “Why You Should Retire in the North Georgia Mountains!”

Reason 1: Why You Should Retire In The North Georgia Mountains

Our Weather, Climate and Change of Seasons!

Union County Weather Chart

Union County ranges in elevation from 1,600 ft. to 4,784 ft. above sea level. Because of its unique topography, Union County offers residents Four Distinct Seasons. Winters are generally mild, with an occasional dusting of snow. The average annual snowfall is 3 inches. Spring brings new life to the Mountains in the form of vibrant yellow-green leaves and many colorful wild flowers. Summers are mostly comfortable, with cool evenings. Autumns bring vibrant colorful changes in the leaves, making the North Georgia Mountains and particularly Union County one of the most popular for leaf-watching. Union County’s average rainfall is approximately 65 inches.

Thank you so much Art for allowing me to share your information here on The Porch. This will make a great series of articles that I am sure will be a great benefit to those who visit.

Thanks so much to you for stopping by and visiting me here on The Porch. If you have any questions or concerns about Blairsville Georgia, or any of the surrounding areas here in the North Georgia Mountains, I would be happy to answer them for you. Although I have been fortunate enough to have been born and raised here in these Mountains,  you can bet that it is still at the Top on My List on places I want to retire. Unfortunately it will be a few more years for me!
