Default Vidalia, we Love it.

I imagine the schools are struggling--probably pretty safe.
Somewhere in this vicinty is Reidsville Correctional Institute--out in the middle of nowhere.
I think logging was once a major industry in this area.

You can research towns/cities/communities at the City-data Homepage.

Vidalia, GA>>>

A tour of the area would answer many of your questions.

The greatest growth and development seems to be in the northern part of the state. Significant growth west of Atlanta--Douglasville, Villa Rica, McDonough and Conyers.

Sorry I didn't see this post sooner! I live in Vidalia, my wife and I relocated here 2 years ago, we love it here. It is a small town and the walls do close in sometimes but it really is a great place to live and raise a family we have 4 daghters.

As far as growth is concerned we are doing very well the Toombs-Montgomery chambers works veery hard to attract new busness to our area, most recently Chicken of the Sea tuna plant with 300+ jobs.

We are also in med. my wife is a Dr. her practice has grown better than we had dreamed. Meadows Regional is in full swing for their new facility ($75 mil. project.) If it's not to late give Vidalia a second look.

It's one of those great little towns in our state that maintains its heritage and rural atmosphere without becoming suburb of a larger city on either end of I16

Vidalia seems to be a nice little town. We've been reading up on it on the internet and have even watched a Christmas parade on YouTube. We've found a couple of Christian bookstores, which is ok with us, as we're Christians. Are there any other bookstores? Is the area welcoming to people from other countries? Are there any good ballet schools in the area? Is there a homeschooling group? Are sports and other activities accessible to homeschooled kids? What are the public libraries like? How does Mount Vernon compare to Vidalia?
