In a few months, my wife will be starting a job in Columbus and I will be starting a job in Albany. We don't want to do the "live in separate apartments" thing, so we're trying to find a place to live in between the two cities. We realize that this would mean a 1-hour commute each way for both of us, but we really want to be together.

Looking at the map, it seems like the following towns in southwest Georgia might be possibilities:

- Americus
- Plains
- Ellaville
- Preston
- Richland
- Cutbert
- Weston

Can anyone give us an opinion -- good or bad -- about these towns? We know nothing about the area, so if a place should be avoided please let us know. Also, if there's an alternative place to live that's not on this list, please tell us.

Many thanks!

Ellaville is where my mother's side of the family originates!

All the towns you mention are very very small except Americus which is a decent size town, not city but town. I'm not sure where you are coming from and what you are accusstomed to. If you want convienence go to Americus. If you want the country take your pick.

Perfect assessment of the towns.

Thanks for the advice, all. We've heard from many sources that Americus is a nice town, so we'll focus on finding a place there. If you know of good parts of town that we should look into for housing -- or bad parts of town to avoid -- please let us know!
