Should I go to law school in Georgia or Virginia? Which is a better state to live and practice in?

I'm debating whether I should go to UGA law or a law school in Virginia. I am from the Atlanta area. What is Northern Virginia and the Virginia Beach area like? I have never been there but have heard that it's really pretty. I don't want to live in a place that's too cold or has too much traffic. I also want to live in a somewhat wealthy area, as I want to practice in estate & wealth planning. Any recommendations?
