“Georgia, Georgia, the whole day through, just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind...”
Ray Charles wasn’t the only one to have Georgia on his mind in 1979 when his song was declared song of the State. And who can blame him. Au-pairing in the State of Georgia can be a wonderful experience. Its the 13th State to join the original Federation and is known as the southern New York, in fact one of its nicknames is Empire State of the South.
A much less imperial and lovable nickname is the Peach state. Most Au-pairs who have travelled to Georgia maintain that they prefer it to the Big Apple. So if you are an Aupair in Georgia and you want to have a chance to see another ‘fruit’ of the USA, a softer, sweeter, furrier state, then put Georgia on your minds. Read on to find what you can see and do, where you can sleep and work and listen to the song that “comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines”.

Au-pair Guide To Night Life In Georgia
After a day out sightseeing and walking there’s nothing better for an Au-pair than going out for a relaxing cocktail and chit chat with your friends. And if you go to the top floor of the Westin Hotel in Atlanta you also get a magnificent view of the city from above, maybe during sunset. If you still have it in you, after drinks you can go, literally, down to earth and hit the Underground area of downtown and go into the many nightclubs, such as Kenny-Alley that holds 7 clubs on its own. Or you can go to the Buckhead District where you can find everything, from high class lounges to laid back bars. Visit the Cab Stand in Albany for all types of music and special evenings every week, the Coyotes in Augusta for live music and a more typically local crowd, or the hundreds of bars Athens is so famous for. No matter what city you’re in, you will always find many entertainments, Georgia style.
