I just want to say that I enjoy this website tremendously, there is a wealth of information to be obtained regarding relocation. We have been contemplating relocating for a while. We currently live in New Jersey. We would like to make 2008 the year, hopefully by the end of summer. Actually, I should say that my husband is accepting to the idea of relocating but not overly thrilled. He doesn't like too much change . I've vaguely reviewed information on the named areas and would like more in depth information the pro the cons, etc. Important areas would be the school systems- we have a freshmen in college ( also wanting to transfer to a 4 year university) a high school senior and 1st grader. I will graduate in May and will be seeking employment as a paralegal, previously I worked in the healthcare setting as a Unit Coordinator, Registrar, Administrative Assistant and have also been employed with Oxford Health Plans as a Medical Mgt. Coordinator. My husband is a general contractor, maintenance mechanic with lots of experience. Affordabilty, culture, access to good healthcare, short commutes to work if possible and seasonal changes. I can do without the snow at this point myself, jperhaps my youngest would like to see a flake or two every once in a while. Oh and reasonably close to airports for travel to visit Mama and Pop-Pop. Any info. you can give would be much appreciated

Atlanta or Valdosta. Nothing much to Macon. St. Mary's is nice. Depends on what you are looking for.

yes there's nothing much to the 7 county Macon-Warner Robins area compared to Valdosta, even though both Bibb and Houston county individually by themselves are more populated than the entire Valdosta metro. If you want a dynamic major city, Atlanta. If you want a medium sized city, Macon. If you want a small city, Valdosta. If you want a coastal area in a small town, close to a large city, St. Marys. One thing you will not have to worry about is traveling down back roads or out of the way spurs away from all the action to get to any of these destinations
