My husband has recently landed a job as a district manager in Georgia. I have lived in in NC my whole life and have never even been to Georgia. Heard that it is very nice and so are the people. We have a wide range of places that we can choose to live. As far south as Warner Robbins, Columbus...up to Smyrna, Peachtree City, Newnan, McDonough...? I have two young children. One just started Kindergarten. I am trying to find a nice place to raise my family with great schools and activities for them to be involved in. I am also a nurse and would be interested in any feedback about the hospitals in those areas. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

We just moved away from McDonough Ga last week. The Union Grove school district is really good with that area being close to Henry Medical Center. We also lived in the Ola school district and prefer it..but may would have to work at a local Dr.s office.

The area is in a housing slump so you can get large homes on good size lots for crazy low prices. We sold our home last week for $174000. It was 2700 sf with a detached 2 gar workshop..an inground pool..on 2 acres.

I've lived all over the south and found Ga no different than other southern states. We loved it there. Best of luck!

Default We did the same thing!

We just moved from Charlotte to Woodstock at the beginning of August. We're still getting used to new school, new town, etc. but I think we'll be OK. I like that my son's high school population is less than half that of his school in Charlotte. He actually gets to participate in activities. Oh, and Cheerwine is coming to Atlanta stores on October 17. That's good, because my supply has run out!

Cheerwine has been sold in stores for several years. I believe that Publix and/or Ingles sells it.

Thanks! I'll have to check it out. I've been so focused on unpacking and settling in (and I still have boxes and boxes to go!) that I haven't had the chance to really get to know the grocery stores. It's been more like running in and getting just what we need. Hubby's been down here since January and he said he couldn't find Cheerwine, but this is the same man who can't find his socks when they are right in front of him. He's cute, though!

Columbus is a great city that is worth looking into. A lot of great things are going on there right now.

I thought places like World Market and Cracker Barrel already sold it, along with Bubble Up?
