Hi everyone,

I currently live in Los Angeles and looking to move back to the southeast area (I'm from Florida/North Carolina) with family in Florida and Tennessee. I have a big interview in Americus, GA next week and was curious if anyone here can tell me about living there? I'm single, 30 and will have my own car. The job entails some traveling, but not sure how much. Any information would be appreciated..

Thanks!

What do you know of South Georgia--east or west? I would not put it at the top of list for a single 30 something...
Here's a link>>> (Jimmy Carter's Hometown is in this vicinity--Sumter County)
The Real Georgia (http://www.therealgeorgia.com/index2.html - broken link)

It should be safe and rather laid back. Columbus is maybe an hour's drive to the west and it's probably an hour and a half to Atlanta.

good luck

sls

Americus is dying on the vine.........seriously.
Walmart and Winn Dixie are the biggest names in town.
The town has never been the same since the tornado blew through last year and destroyed Sumter Hospital!!
Ok for retired folks but barely.

Well, since the tornado they have built a temporary hospital, totally destroyed the remainder of the old hospital and have begun the new hospital on the very piece of ground the old one was on. Winn Dixie, the last I heard, stopped rebuilding their new store and another chain type store stepped in. Any small city that can build a temporary hospital (complete with several operating rooms and lab) in a year... only for a two year service (while the permanent hospital is being built) is far from dying on the vine. Seriously.

Both of my parents are from there and alot of cousins uncles aunts etc... still there. I went to college there. Americus is a very quaint small-college town. Some of the "main street" houses are simply beautiful - with the sidewalks down both sides of the streets. I think Americus really took a hit when the tornado came through, but the people there seem to be unsinkable and are really making efforts to replace and rebuild even better! There are some really fine folks around there, and I believe that we are going to see bigger and better things from Americus before long. Of course, my definition of bigger and better may not coincide with some other's idea. Just my opinion. I think Americus is a fine place. My only concern would be how much "night-life" kinda stuff you are interested in. Not a whole lot of that there, but the trade-off is worth it in my opinion. Wish you well!

Hi- I am also considering moving to Americus. I was wondering what the area is like politically. I saw that in 2000 and 2004 the separation in vote count for Bush versus Gore and Bush versus Kerry was about 100 votes. Do you feel like the city is roughly divided between Democrats and Republicans? Do people in the area get excited about elections and politics? Also, do you feel like it is a gay-friendly area where people are accepting of each other? I truly appreciate your thoughts.

I went to college in Americus. Nice town, but older population. I love it though. Cheap to live and everything is close by. You are still close to bigger towns, Albany, Columbus, Macon.
