Carat 98,

What I love is rural, small town Georgia... not just my town but the many charming small towns I've visited. I think of these towns as CIVILIZATION..and I'm not kidding...people down here are civil.

The things I mentioned in my post like animal auctions, farms, etc are in many small towns in Georgia. I think where life is slower we all have a better chance of getting to know each other. A few visits from the plumber and you find out he's also a minister. Turns out the electrician raises horses...that kind of thing. In "city life" my accountant was my accountant and I had appointments. Here I drop by my accountant and we chat about historic houses.

I hope you won't think I'm rude to just say that I live in a tiny historic town in a rural part of the Piedmont area, south of Atlanta.

All the best,
zebbie

I often write about towns that I visit. What I think is important is to encourage people who are coming to Georgia and have a choice in where they can live (i.e., their jobs don't tie them down to a particular location) to take a look at small towns and small town life.

Not at all. You make it all sound so wonderful. I didn't have that experience and maybe its because I still have to eek and living and don't have the time to travel, except for the weekends. I do love the mountains of GA and the apple farms.....fried apple pies. I miss them. Thanks for the response and best to you.

Carat,
If you have a chance to subscribe or look on-line at the (Georgia) Farmers and Consumers Market guide (or bulletin) I think you'll find farms all over Georgia that sell produce and in surprising places, too. That publication lists a lot of things to do as well. If you're not familiar with the publication, it's mailed every two weeks.

I was able to visit Elijay and Blue Ridge last year and that was great, I'd never been to an apple growing REGION before. Unfortunately those areas are a long haul for us and IMHO there is a lot of traffic to get to them.

My husband works in the town where we live, so we are very fortunate. A lot of people in our neck of the woods have very long commutes.
