What is the best lake(s) to live on in Georgia?

Here are some things we are looking for:

Good schools (have a 1.5 year old and another on the way)
Near things/amenities
My husband words in CNC Machining/Tool and Die (so near some places to work/not in the middle of nowhere)
Not too close to national disasters


Thank you!!!

Lake Harding outside of Columbus. Beautiful lake with affordable homes and property. Harris County schools are some of the best public schools in Georgia. There are great private schools in Columbus as well.

Read the part concerning the economy, jobs and industry growth in Alabama, especially since your husband is hunting a job in industry.

I lived in the Columbus area for 23 years and might have ventured into Alabama a half dozen times a year if that. It’s easy to avoid. Columbus has about everything you need. If you can’t find it there, Atlanta is 1.5 hours away.

Haha nothing wrong with Alabama just makes it a little further from the east coast than we were hoping. Thanks for the nice read!
