Atlanta: Most redneck city in the USA?

Consider, as they say, the source. The same folks over at the Movoto real estate blog who recently decreed Atlanta the most nerdy city in the U.S. have now dubbed us "most redneck."

The redneck-calculation methodology developed by Movoto's Natalie Grigson includes: percentage of high school dropouts; number of gun stores, taxidermists, Walmarts, country music stations, and Western gear vendors; and proximity to a NASCAR track. Also lawn mower repair stores.

Alright, Natalie. We'll concede on most of the findings—especially the guns and dropouts. But did you have to make a Jeff Foxworthy reference? We'd have gone with the Stone Mountain laser show.

Report: Atlanta ranks No. 42 for city parks

Atlanta sometimes is called “the city in the trees,” and certainly as you fly into Hartsfield-Jackson this time of year, a green canopy appears to cover the city. But deplane and explore at ground level and you’ll soon realize things aren’t quite so verdant. For the third year in a row we have earned a low score on a national assessment of city parks. But—in large part due to the Atlanta BeltLine—Atlanta’s gaining green space and serving more residents.
