Two contrasting towns in terms of local culture. Warner Robins is a military town, via the USAF base at one end of town. Statesboro is a college town.

Statesboro, being a college town, is probably going to be more fun if you are looking for bars and nightlife. It's also a quick hop to Savannah so it has that in its favor. Statesboro also has a pretty nice waterpark, especially for a city its size. Warner Robins feels like more of a suburb really and it is very much a military town.

I agree that Savannah being close is a Major plus for Statesboro. Plus Statesboro has more of a Downtown area than Warner Robins. Warner Robins has been trying to establish more of a Downtown Feel along watson boulevard.

Warner Robins is a much MUCH bigger town than Statesboro. It has 4 high schools and a mall, multiple commercial districts and 3 exits on I-75. It's also just 20 miles from downtown Macon, whereas Statesboro is 45 miles from Savannah.

Well speaking of how close Warner Robins is to Macon in relation to the distance between Statesboro and savannah is well let me just say this Maybe the QUALITY of Savannah outways how much closer Warner Robins is to Macon and the Distance Statesboro is to Savannah.

And by the way @Newsboy Bigger doesn't always mean better. They're many cities that are Bigger than Savannah but do that necessarily mean that they are better?

Gotta go with WR. You can't compare the two. WR crushes Statesboro in just about every category. Statesboro and Dublin would be a better comparison IMO.

Those bars will get old very quick in Statesboro. Warner Robins is a military town but it's much bigger and has much more to offer than Statesboro. WR is the main city in a metropolitan area while Statesboro is the main city in a micropolitan area. Statesboro is also a pretty poverty stricken town in which 42% of the population falls below the poverty line compared to 13% for Warner Robins. Also, WR was ranked as the best place to raise a family in GA in 2009 and 2010 while still ranking pretty high year after year.

Seems to me @cdw you are going mainly by statistics. Maybe when you calculate WR population compared to statesboro maybe wr has more poverty than boro. Have to visit towns first before just going by statistics because that can really fool you. Out of the 4 2nd tier cities which one by consensas is best? I think we know the Answer! But at the same time which one of them have the highest and continue to rise crime? Answer: The Same One by consensas that is the Best! So statistics don't tell the whole story! Lastly i can name several things that Statesboro has that a town the Size of WR should have and don't. Name me something that WR has that even a town the size of Statesboro should have? I can name SEVERAL!
