Ok, I got it, Albany sucks, but I don't understand the big move to Lee county. It looks like Leesburg is the biggest city in Lee county, not really anything there? So is everyone just moving out to the country and still commuting to Albany? Sounds like Albany is still home, you must have to shop and do everything you need to do in Albany, right?

It's got some of the best schools and public services in that part of Georgia. And the drive to Albany isn't bad at all. Not that much of a headscratcher why some people have chosen to relocate out there imo.

While I can't speak from actual knowledge, rumor up here in North Ga is the schools are the driving force for that migration.

Leesburg is not much better than Albany. That whole swath from Albany to Americus is filled with what another poster once referred to as 'zombies'. Catch my drift, eh?

I would stoop to the level of your comment, but won't. The area from Albany to Americus is filled with many wonderful people, some beautiful and bucolic scenery and numerous things to do. Neither my family nor my friends are "zombies". Really. Like my grandma used to implore, "If you cannot say something nice, say nothing at all."

"In Valdosta" is, of course, from Valdosta, so it's not wander they would say that.

Sorry to offend you. Does everyone in here get offended so easily, especially the 'higher ranked' posters? I do like the scenery of just about all of South GA, so I agree. As far as zombies go, I can see where they developed that term here in Valdosta. Some parts of Valdosta are overrun with them, lol. What they are referring to is when you drive or walk down some streets, first it appears peaceful, then all of a sudden out of nowhere, people 'pop' up out of nowhere sometimes filling the sides of streets/roads along with convenience store parking lots. From myself being a resident in other regions of the country I have seen this new and popular craze over convenience stores, but I have to say that I have not yet seen so many people that do not have a car infiltrating the parking lots like I do down here. While, I do like Valdosta there are certain parts that they can just throw in the swamp to the gators at Okie- namely the east and south sides, and pockets of the north side. I actually moved to the north side and had thought and been told that it was a good part of town. It is for the most part but it is strange, directly across the main strett that I live off of, it is quite the opposite. As far as the post topic goes, well I was not too impressed with Albany,at least the city proper. I did enjoy the gator exhibit at Chehaw- very unique and somewhat scary. I really liked beautiful Radium Springs. Lastly, the part of town near the Ray Charles statue and the aquarium looks nice. Unfortunately, the rest of the city rather 'blew'. Funny hw it goes to such extremes. Don't worry I do not believe Albany is near as nasty as Cordele or Omega. In reference to your grand ma, that would be a nice utopian dream but you cant expect everyone to be all alike and be keen on everything. Have a good day, no more testing me people! lol.
