My family and I are looking at a possible relocation with a job in Moultrie, GA.

We are accustomed to new homes and neighborhoods with amenities such as sidewalks, street lights, parks, playgrounds, and pools. I'm not having any luck finding anything like that. I see there's lots of land there and we're not used to that. Most of the homes are older, which is fine if we could find one in decent shape, with not a lot of work to do.

I guess this is city girl moving to the country sort of. Not city like New York or Atlanta, but just used to having things close by.

Can anyone give us ideas of areas we could live closeby and find newer, possible golf course communities, good schools, as we have a rising 2nd grader (we've found Hamilton and Doerun to be good schools). The big problem seems to be that when we plug in some of the smaller surrounding towns such as Ellenton, Autreyville, and some others, our search shows nothing found. I don't know if that means no homes for sale or the computer has never heard of it.

We're not opposed to small town living, it'll be a first for us, but there's definitely something to be said about living like that. We're from Charleston, SC, lived in Savannah, GA and now live in Bluffton, SC, which is growing by leaps and bounds daily. So we're exicted about the possibility.

Where's the nearest super center walmart? Mall? Good churches?

Any help is appreciated.

Karen

From South Ga so can help. There are a few new subdivisions going up on the south side of Moultrie. Talokas drive and Sunset elm school districts are the nicest areas to me and that is a good school. A very good golf course (Sunset) nearby there and a great walking trail. There also is a Wal-Mart super center not far away on veterans parkway.

You will have to travel 30,40 minutes to Valdosta or Albany for a decent mall. (Albany has the largest but Valdosta recently expanded) You might want to do a lot of your shopping and entertaining in these towns. Valdosta has a nice amusement park (Wild Adventures).

People you meet will be friendly and I garantee many of them will invite you to their church so you should have no problem finding one. They also will reccomend places to go and things to do.

We are definately talking small town living in this area. You may have to drive through 30,40 miles of cotton fields, pines, and orchards or even 60 miles to Thallahassee to find some of the things you are accoustomed to having at your finger tips in Savannah. Ive known a few people transplant there from as far away as Indiana and Missouri some like me find it just too slow and limited others love it. Either way hope all works our well. Good luck!

Try to stay within the Sunset or RB Wright Elementary School districts when relocating. I have had very good personal experience with RB Wright, but also know that Sunset is a very good school. Next to that would be Norman Park Elementary; between Tifton and Moultrie.

Would love for your family to visit Lifespring Community Church across from Spencefield. Everyone is welcome and loved. We have very good programs for children.

Moultrie is a small town, but is growing because of the bypass (Veterans Parkway) that goes from Tallahassee to Atlanta runs through here. We do have a new 6 movie theater, skating rink, Arts Center, YMCA.

Default Moultrie is in the middle of it all..........

Moultrie Georgia, is a prime location to move to in Southwest Georgia. It is the most centrally located city in Southwest Georgia. Within 30 to 40 miles of: Albany, Tifton, Valdosta, Thomasville, Adel, Camilla, Sylvester, Quitmain, Cairo.

Within an hour of Tallahassee, Bainbridge, etc.

Moultrie is growing! As reported in Georgia Trend Magazine in August 2007, Moultrie/Colquitt County has 47 subdivisions either under construction or in the works, including the newly announced and started, Preserve at Cobblestone, which will be a Gated-Community. The subdivisions range in homes from $60,000 to $400,000 and higher and everything in between.

Commercial growth is expanding rapidly also with the following recently opened, under construction or in the works:
Lowe's, The Home Depot, Arby's, Chick-fil-A, Quizno's, 2 new Mexican Restaurants, Cedar River Seafood, Pizza Buffet, 2 new coffee shops as well as more retail and restaurant development in the planning stages.

Moultrie/Colquitt County is a community of nearly 45,000 people and is projected to be near 50,000 by 2010 which will make it the 3rd most populated county behind Lowndes and Dougherty Counties.

Moultrie is home to many yearly festivals and events including 2 Classic Car Shows, Two Arts and Craft Shows, Spring Fling, Downtown Concerts at the Downtown Moultrie Amphitheater, as well as one of the largest events in Georgia, The Sunbelt Expo which draws over 200,000 people to Moultrie every October.

Moultrie has an award winning historic Downtown, which was just recognized for its growth, preservation and amount of events that draw thousands to downtown Moultrie every year including during the holidays where the entire downtown is covered in a canopy of lights!

Need more information, just ask or go to: Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce

Smile Moultrie-Thomasville

I live in Thomasville but I consider Moultrie equal (almost). We are closer to the coast of course. There are a lot of good things going on in Thomasville. 2 golf courses, good schools, drama teams, art society. Link to Thomasville
Thomasville, Georgia
I am starting a blog on Thomasville which will have historical, current events and lots of pictures. I am working on that now and hope to have it up soon.
It will be called Plantation Review. I hope this helps and if you have any questions or need anything from our area to assist you in your decision, I would be glad to help, just email me.

Moultrie is a beautiful place to me. It seems like the town that time forgot. Great place to raise a decent family. I have a client that is an investor, but he's getting older and recently had an open heart surgery. I'm trying to find an investor that might be interested in a package deal. The properties are in moultrie and there are 6 of them. They range from 55 to 100 per or he will sell the whole package for 300K. If you know anyone who might be interested, please let me know.

Moultrie is a great place to raise kids! I moved there about two years ago and have grown to love it...although there isn't much to do, Albany, Thomasville,Valdosta, and Tifton are only a skip away! There are lots of new contruction and older homes on the market, all of which are in a good price range, shape, and area! Good Luck and I really do hope that you will find Moultrie a new adventure!
