Don't make jokes about Jim Crow or Sherman's March to the Sea. Whistling "Marching Through Georgia" will not win you friends (this may seem obvious, but the lyrics and origins are less well known than the tune)
Stay safe 
While less and less common, racial problems still exist.
Like much of the South, Georgia can be oppressively hot and humid during the summer. Shorts and flip-flops are widely accepted indoors and outdoors during the summer months.
In the same vein, at nice restaurants you can often get away with shorts as long as you wear shoes and a collared shirt. This is easier during the day than in the evening.
Unfortunately, many people and offices run the air conditioning down to 70F in the summer, and crank the heat up to 80F in the winter. As a result, dress that's appropriate for outside may not be suited for indoors. The best way to cope is to dress in layers, so you can adjust as needed.
