I've lived in major metro areas my whole live. Have spent a decent amount of time in Atlanta even lived there briefly, however I've never lived in a small town/rural community. I have a potential job offer in Glennville GA. What is this town like? I've spent most of my life in suburban Maryland. While a city dwelling Yankee feel out of place here?

Default Glennville Ga.

You may want to post this in the Savannah part of the Georgia forum to get an answer to your question.Glennville is closer to the Georgia coastal towns like Savannah than it is Atlanta.

Maybe, at least at first. I know Claxton, Baxley, Hinesville and Jesup pretty well. These are small cities where everybody knows everyone else, roll with the introductions enough times and you'll be part of that.

Glennvile is small enough it doesn't have a Walmart, so there's that. I think the closest one would be in Hinesville, which is the largest of the neighboring cities. There's a grocery store, a hardware store, maybe a little clothing/gift store, and half a dozen dollar stores. Be mindful and shop at the local stores and skip the dollar stores.

Kirkland Seafood is a good fried fish place. Not too many other restaurants in town, that part of Georgia every city has a Dairy Queen, an ok Mexican place, a ****ty Chinese place, and a handful of fried chicken and sides places.


For a breath of a larger city, Savannah is a great daytrip or weekend city and only an hour or so away. If you like being on the water, the Altamaha has great fishing and boating. Southeast Georgia in general is great for taking up canoeing or other outdoor activities. Nothing like paddling through a cypress swamp.

If it's a good job for you with room for promotion, company transfers, or career advancement, take it. You may end up loving it, if not you can live there for at least one year without going crazy. Be sure to rent your first year or so, you don't want to end up buying something and being stuck in a mortgage in a place you don't want to be.

Turnbro,

Glennville is an agriculturally based rural town West of Hinesville. Not much going on unlike a metropolitan area. We have a lot of Glennville based folks that have second homes and recreate in the coastal area of McIntosh County. Without knowing what you're looking for it's kind of difficult to say if Glennville would meet your needs.
