Georgia is known for its hot sometimes sub-tropical climate, humidity, bugs, and mild winters. We also have a number of different types of climates in our state as well. From the coastline on the Atlantic, to the plains of middle Georgia to the mountains in the north, Georgia has a number of different regions. Needless to say, the ailments that tend to occur in Georgia are somewhat different than what you may see in the drier or colder states in the US.
