What can any of you good Georgia folks tell me about the Voldosta, GA area
regarding shopping (what stores like Home Depot, Lowes Sears, how about Macy's ,malls etc. ), temperatures bad good or indifferent, do you suffer from lots of humidity and for basically how long, how are your winters?

Schools? How about entertainment and activities.
Are there Roman Catholics there?
Itailain community? How are the folks in general?
Police force? Hospitals?

I'm married, 48 years old with 2 girls and I'm tring to find an area that will kind of mirror what we may be leaving behind...except for the high cost of living in NJ.

People are nice. It is a smaller city with a University. Mostly protestant in Georgia but im sure you can find a Church to go to. As far as Italian's not sure but the people will be nice. Will be a big change from New Jersey though.

Positives- Nice small town with University enviorment, Great Weather, Close to beaches and Florida, lower cost of living, nice people, Golf,

Negatives-Humid, bugs, not as much to do, will take some getting used to moving to the south its different. Not many Italian Roman Catholic People.

hope this helps. Alot of people from North hated the south at first but when they get used to it they absolutely love it. Just have patience.

As a start, try spelling it Valdosta. It's going to be a change from NJ, that's for certain. There may be a few Italians there, but I doubt it will be a large community. Ditto for Roman Catholics. That area was settled by mostly English and Scot-Irish Protestants.

For a good look at Valdosta, go to this site: Or do a Google search for further information.

//www.city-data.com/city/Valdosta-Georgia.html

It says that about 2% of the population is Italian. You might want to look at the type of work that the adults do, and the education level.

No offense, but there is more than the cost of living that most people want to leave behind in NJ.

I'd suggest you come for a visit during August. Then decide if you can tolerate that weather for several months each year.
