I live in a small town in Wisconsin,,(Lodi). Looking to relocate to Georgia with my 10 year old son. I would like to keep the small town "feel". I've searched East Dublin,, wondering what options a single father has out there?

wircmre, Why are you lookinmg at Dublin? You are looking at a town well outside and an hour to Atanta where everyhting is at. The school system is small town why not search in a metro area that is outside the metro area that is not to far out and closer to the hub of Atlanta. Let me suggest Gwinnett County. There are plenty of communities that are great! If you move to the Macon area or south there is a small town feel, but away from the suburban amenities. Dublin is a really small town, well away from the metro area. If that's what you want maybe you will be happy with this , but there are many small town enviroments that you can actuially make a good living in. The northern metro Atlanta area. Let me know if I can help in any way. Bill

Default Come to Grayson!

We just relocated to Georgia back in March. We bought a house in Grayson, which is in Gwinnett County. The schools in Grayson are amoung the best in the state, so you can't go wrong! Grayson is everything we hoped it would be and more. Very safe, slightly off the beaten path, yet 15 minutes from everything you would ever need. We're also just 45 minutes outside of Atlanta, so it's easy enough to head to the city to catch a game if we want to.

Best of all, the people are just nice as can be!! We LOVE livin here!

Thanks fro the advice,,I'll check out Gwinnett County. I really don't want a suburb,, like to be far enough away from a big city. I live 30 minutes from Madison and like that distance.

Just to let you know, Dublin is the yearly site of the "Redneck Games," where they compete in things like hog calling, and various activities involving mud. The area around Dublin is a world away from metro Atlanta, and would likely be a culture shock.

You may like Athens. A beautiful college town that may remind of you of Madison. Madison, GA (a neighboring town to Athens) is another place you may want to check out. ABout 1.5 hours from aTlanta in case you need to go.

I am not directly familiar with Dublin, but I know a few people who have "escaped" from there, and have very few nice things to say about it.

Dublin may not be that much of a culture shock.
Rural Wisconsin has its own rednecks..............
A little different but similar............
