Any input on Toccoa area to retire to? Are there good medical facilities near? Also how is internet access? Is Emperor Rd area nice? Thank you for any input.

I like Toccoa as a place to retire to. It's a good location since it's right in the foothills of the mountains and you have Lake Hartwell right there as well (my family has a place on the lake). This kinda helps prop up the local economy. Rural areas aren't doing too well unless they have some sort of tourist draw and I think Toccoa is close enough to the lake and the mountains.
GA-17 was recently widened to the SE to Lavonia so there's easy access to 85. You also have US-23 should you need to go to Atlanta (you won't have the traffic of I-85).
I think there's a hospital in Toccoa. There's also one in Lavonia just off 85/GA 17.

Internet is ok. I forget who we have but it's not as fast as what we get in Atlanta.
