Moving from Baltimore, MD, to Atlanta, GA

Atlanta has a charm all its own

As a city of just under half a million residents, Atlanta may seem smaller than Baltimore, with nearly 600,000 individuals calling the city home. But when you compare the metropolitan areas, you might be surprised.  

Atlanta’s metropolitan area is home to just over 6 million people— or about the population of the whole state of Maryland, according to the 2020 U.S. Census. Although you’re leaving the “Charm City” of Baltimore, Maryland, you’ll be glad to know Atlanta has qualities of its own. 

Younger history awaits you

The city that is now Atlanta was established in 1837, nearly 100 years later than Baltimore. But just because Atlanta is younger than your former home doesn’t mean there’s not rich history to explore. Learn more by checking out these museums and sites: 

  • Atlanta History Center is a 33-acre campus featuring the Atlanta History Museum, four historic houses, the Kenan Research Center, and much more. 
  • Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum features family-friendly interactive displays and exhibits. 
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Park, nearly 35 acres featuring exhibits, landmarks and monuments, including Dr. King’s birth home. 
  • National Center for Civil And Human Rights is a site featuring American civil rights history and how it affects global human rights. 

How many peach trees will you spot in Atlanta?

If you enjoyed the trees of Maryland, you’ll feel right at home with the foliage in Atlanta. But you won’t find many peach trees in the Peach State (unless you count one of the 70+ roads, streets, avenues, etc., with variations of “peach tree” in their names). Atlanta is sometimes called “The City in a Forest” due to its surrounding pine tree forests. Other trees common to the area include Maple, River Birch, Hickory, Flowering Dogwood and Magnolia. And with Atlanta’s many parks and reserves, you’ll have ample space to enjoy nature.

A growing capital city

Atlanta has been among the nation’s fastest-growing areas for years. With low unemployment rates and higher-than-average salaries, Georgia’s capital city is a big draw for newcomers. Many declining neighborhoods have been revitalized recently to create attractive businesses and housing for singles and young families. Hot job markets include Fortune 500 companies, entertainment, health care and higher education.
