7) Atlanta, Georgia
Tying with Portland as another city that 3.2% of Californians are moving to, Atlanta offers a drastically different environment than its northwest counterpart. However different the nation’s south and northwest regions may be, Atlanta appeals to Californians for the same reason Portland and Seattle do. Job growth between February 2017 and February 2018 in Atlanta rose 2.0 percent, which is above national average of 1.6 percent in the same period. Housing is also much more affordable here than California and in the aforementioned cities of Seattle and Portland. The median home price in Atlanta is $249,000. Atlanta also boats a surprising variety of things to do. There’s the Georgia Atlanta and Zoo Atlanta with the nation’s best panda exhibit. There’s also the World of Coca-Cola museum, the historic Fox Theater, and the Martine Luther King Jr. Historic Site. How’s that for variety?
