Downtown Atlanta from North Avenue Bridge.

In the heart of the South, "The Peach State" is bordered on the east by South Carolina, on the west by Alabama, on the north by Tennessee and North Carolina, and to the south by Florida.

Over the last decade, Georgia has become one of the fastest-growing states in the nation led by the capital city, Atlanta, which has effectively become a major communications hub for the southeast.

Major corporate headquarters which call Atlanta home include CNN, Arby's, The Coca-Cola Company, Georgia Pacific, ING Americas, and Delta Air Lines. Other top Georgia industries include traditional agriculture, tourism and real estate.

Defense also plays a large part in many local communities, due to the proliferation of military installations throughout the state including Fort Stewart, Hunter Army Airfield, Fort Benning, Fort McPherson, Fort Gillem and Fort Gordon.
