You’re at your local Whole Foods shopping for kale chips and asparagus water, trying to work out if you’ll have time to stop at the Pottery Barn before you head to your yoga class taught by a girl named Sage. It hits you: you’re leading the whitest life imaginable.

But does that mean the city you live in is one of the whitest places in Georgia?

Don’t worry, we’ve figured it out for you. Using actual census data combined with our favorite white people stereotypes (as confirmed by the internet), we can determine which cities are the whitest of the white in the Peach State.

After analyzing cities with populations greater than 5,000, we came up with this list as the whitest cities in Georgia:

  1. Dahlonega (Photos)
  2. Flowery Branch (Photos)
  3. Cumming (Photos)
  4. Buford (Photos)
  5. St. Simons
  6. Decatur (Photos)
  7. Richmond Hill (Photos)
  8. Alpharetta (Photos)
  9. Woodstock (Photos)
  10. Braselton (Photos)

If you’re wondering, Redan is the least white city of all those we measured.

How we determined the whitest places in Georgia

In order to rank the whitest places in Georgia, we had to determine what measurable criteria defines whiteness.

Obviously we had to count how many white people living there, but being one of the whitest cities in Georgia means much more than just having a high percentage of folks who are of the Caucasian persuasion.

These are cities jam-packed with all the stuff white folks love, based on everyone’s favorite stereotypes. After breaking it down, we came up with following criteria to run on 154 Georgian cities:

  1. Percentage of population that’s white
  2. Whole Foods per capita
  3. Farmers markets per capita
  4. Vegan restaurants per capita
  5. Pottery Barns per capita
  6. Yoga studios per capita

Notes: For the sake of getting reliable numbers, we counted places within a city’s border, as well as within a short driving distance.

All of these results are listed in a per capita basis, meaning number of stores per person in a state.

1. Dahlonega

White: 89%
Yoga Rank: Top 10%
Whole Foods rank: Top 2%
Vegan rank: Top 2%

Out of 154 cities in Georgia we collected data for, Dahlonega comes in as the whitest city by far. Not only does Dahlonega have the third most Whole Foods and vegan restaurants per capita, it’s also been called the heart of North Georgia Wine Country, which definitely adds some bonus white points to the city.

On top of that, this adorable little town literally celebrates an occasion when a black bear wandered into their square with a three-day festival called “Bear on the Square,” complete with bluegrass and old-timey music.

Even with all the yoga studios and stereotypically white food venues in Dahlonega, this little tradition seems like the whitest thing about the city.

2. Flowery Branch

White: 85%
Whole Foods rank: Top 5%
Farmer’s market rank: Top 1%
Vegan rank: Top 15%

Consider that this city in northern Georgia has the most farmers markets per capita in the state, and is in the top ten for most Whole Foods per capita and % of the population that’s white.

Flowery Branch also has plenty of places to enjoy vegan food (if that’s possible), so you’ll always be able to tell your friends how superior your diet is.

3. Cumming

White: 79%
Whole Foods rank: Top 2%
Vegan rank: Top 2%

Another Atlanta suburb, Cumming’s motto is “Gateway to Leisure Living,” which accurate if you equate leisure with things white folks love, like Whole Foods and vegan food.

Cumming has the second most Whole Foods per capita, so there’s plenty of places for you to drop your Whole Paycheck (seriously, there’s one every three square miles).

On top of that, Cumming has the fourth most places to get rabbit food (i.e. vegan) per capita in the state of Georgia.

4. Buford

White: 74%
Whole Foods rank: Top 10%
Vegan rank: Top 5%
Pottery Barn rank: Top 1%

Yet another city in northern Georgia (there’s a pattern here), Buford is home to the Mall of Georgia, the largest in the state and the 36th biggest in the country – and we all know white folks love a good shopping mall.

But the thing that stands out most about Buford is the illogically abundant supply of Pottery Barns – I mean, come on, why would a town of 12,575 need three Pottery Barns?

Aside from ranking first in PB’s per capita, Buford also ranked in the top 10% for both vegan restaurants and Whole Foods, which more than makes up for its smaller percentage of white people.

5. St. Simons

White: 95%
Whole Foods rank: Top 5%
Vegan rank: Top 15%

Located in southeastern Georgia, St. Simons is the first city on this list (and one of only two) to not be located around Atlanta in northern Georgia.

With a super high 95% white population, St. Simons has the third most white folks of any place in Georgia, and the highest percentage of any city on this list.

Loads of professional golfers come from St. Simons as well, which, along with the fifth place ranking in Whole Foods per capita and the relatively high density of vegan restaurants, add some extra fluff to St. Simon’s white score.

6. Decatur

White: 72%
Farmer’s market rank: Top 1%
Vegan Rank: Top 1%

Although Decatur is tied for the lowest percentage of white residents on this list, it makes up for it by being among the whitest cities in Georgia in other ways.

With three farmers markets in a town of less than 20,000, Decatur ranks as the city with the second most farmers markets per capita in Georgia.

What could be whiter than that? Having the most vegan restaurants per capita in the state, that’s what. Seriously though, there are six vegan restaurants per square mile in Decatur.

7. Richmond Hill

White: 80%
Whole Foods rank: Top 15%
Vegan rank: Top 25%

The only other city in southeastern Georgia to make the list, Richmond Hill has a wide array of white qualities. For starters, it was industrialist and all-around white guy Henry Ford’s winter home, as well as a major beneficiary of his philanthropy.

Richmond Hill ranks in the top 20 for % white population and Whole Foods per capita, and in the top 25% for most vegan restaurants per capita.

8. Alpharetta

White: 72%
Farmer’s market rank: Top 5%
Vegan rank: Top 10%
Pottery Barn rank: Top 5%

Alpharetta is also in the top 5% for farmers markets and Pottery Barns per capita. There’s four Pottery Barns in the city, meaning you’ll never have to drive far to buy overpriced furniture and home goods.

When you’re finished dropping a thousand dollars on a rug at Pottery Barn, you can refuel at one of Alpharetta’s many vegan restaurants.

9. Woodstock

White: 82%
Vegan rank: Top 10%
Pottery Barn rank: Top 5%

Woodstock is every bit as hippy as you’d think. It has all the vegan joints you’d imagine it would and a surprisingly high rate of Pottery Barns. Woodstock is also one of the fastest growing suburbs in the whole country.

10. Braselton

Whitest Places In Georgia

Source: Facebook user Work, Live and Play in Braselton, Georgia

White: 84%
Yoga rank: Top 1%
Whole Foods rank: Top 1%

While most of the cities on this list were, quite frankly, pathetic in the yoga category, Braselton makes up for it with the most yoga studios per capita of anywhere in Georgia.

But the whiteness doesn’t end there, because Braselton has A Whole Foods for a city of under 8,000, giving it the first place ranking in that category as well.

The only reason Braselton isn’t in the top five whitest cities in Georgia is a severe shortage of vegan restaurants and Pottery Barns.

There You Have It
Measuring both the locations with the highest percentage of white people, as well as the number of stereo-typically white venues, this list provides accurate information on the whitest places in Georgia. Most of them are in the north, within an hour’s drive from Atlanta.

Additionally, here are the least white places in Georgia: Redan, Panthersville, Candler-McAfee, Gresham Park, Lovejoy.

  1. How come you have the whitest cities listed , but not the blackest or brownest cities listed? In case you didn’t know, there are a lot of black and brown cities in Georgia. Albany, Atlanta, and College Park to name a few. These cities are also rampant with crime and poor education. I know this site is for “infotainment” as you suggest, but you obviously don’t want to piss off people of color. With lists such as “redneck” and “whitest” you certainly don’t mind having a laugh at white people’s expense. Why don’t all of you smug, self-loathing, white-guilt ridden smart-asses grow a spine and make the other lists I suggested?

  2. Looking to buy a new home we’re there’s more white people live than I do now thank you for the article

  3. I agree with all the comments above. Having grown up in low class East Point in the early 60’s and 70’s and now seeing that it has gone from low class to no class due to the white flight caused by black migration, it is one of the most crime ridden cities in GA , apart from College Park. I now live in a suburb of Houston called Humble, moved here in 87 and it has now become crime infested due to the invasion of Mexican peoples and their insane macho driven birthrates and the black gang members who live down the highway. But that’s w hat liberals call diversity…they want everyone of color , oriental and middle eastern to increase in population and fracture the established mores and traditions of a gentile white society to create their interpretation of society, their way of life. White liberals don’t care and don’t associate themselves as being white even though blacks ,hispanics
    and most other races do see themselves as a race of people and are proud of that….Not white liberals…they go around making jokes about any white person who doesn’t support their biases toward white society..ie. this article and others. Let’s see…..hmmm… what would define a black city’s amenities to attract blacks …perhaps a Popeyes fried chicken or a coin operated laundromat , tons of basketball courts and maybe a few Seven/ Elevens…can’t forget Walmart….you see how crass and rascist that is? White liberals do this all the time to real white people ….to lower and debase them to help the other races become true rascists against white society.

  4. Now , Road Snacks, do your articles on 10 blackest towns in Georgia, and 10 Most Mexican towns in Texas, or perhaps you should entitle it top10 black trash towns or top 10 Mexican trash towns….not coming back to you rascist against white site again…you liberal trash jerks

  5. Mexican cities: Litter everywhere, bass Mexican music playing all night, vans & trucks everywhere, dogs barking all night. I will take white cities anytime over black cities.
