Whoever talked about Washington Georgia I would be curious to hear more about this lake area. Any good schools in the area? And what kind of prices on lake homes?

Any one who says Washington is not very touristy has obviously not been to Washington. We have 3 museums, many restaurants, a few cafés, and there's always live music somewhere on the weekend. The people here are very friendly and open minded, and will welcome you heartily. It is also a great place to live in if you like riding your bike or walking, or if you're concerned about raising your children in a safe town where they can safely roam free. While the local government is clearly incompetent, it is not worse than anywhere else and there are at least no problems with corruption. It is a clean, pretty and, yes, touristy little town. There are also more antebellum homes here than in Madison, and you can get a lot of house for your money. I know a few kids from the different local schools, and they are all very well mannered and educated. As polite and knowledgeable as any in any big city, so the system can't be that bad. There's also a hospital here, so that's a plus as well.
You should do some more research and visit before you decide. There are several websites about Washington, such as washingtongeorgia dot net and washingtonwilkes dot org. When you come, make sure to stay at the magnificent Fitzpatrick Hotel on the square.

Good luck with your relocation.

Schools are typical. No better nor worst than any other area. It's the illiteracy that is the problem. Better off in a private school. Nathanial Greene or Briarwood Academy. 4-H is wonderful. Limited children's programming but getting better.

Lake homes vary in price. Could go from $200K-$400K+ depending on your lot size or location. Sometimes the homes are more expensive if you invest in a community. Consider getting a nice parcel and construction a large pond. An acre or so. Minimal cost $5K+. Community home sites packages in surrounding counties start at $300K. It depends on if you what to build your dream. Or, do you what to live someone else's dream and take you along for the ride. Some estate size homes come with two ponds and a swimming pool for around $485K+.
