My wife and I are considering moving to Vidalia to set up a healthcare practice? We are torn about the area, and would like some general info on the area. Is it growing? How are the people? The Schools? Safe? Anything to do?
Thanks!

I think Vidalia is in South Central GA. On the map it was between Dublin and Metter---I doubt that the are is growing much.

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>>>
//www.city-data.com/city/Vidalia-Georgia.html

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.

Hi , I was born and raised in the area surrounding Vidalia. Been there many times to shop and eat. Yes , Vidalia is growing. It has many places to eat , shopping , doctors , dentists , a hospital. I don't know anything about the schools there as I have never been nor had children to go to school there.

Vidalia has the annual Sweet Onion Festival. Savannah is 90 miles away for those who would like or need a larger city to shop or visit. I don't think there is much to do in Vidalia. It would be ideal for an older retired couple. But does have a lot of youger people there.

Here are some links. Check them out. The second link is the better one I think.

I'm a resident of vidalia, georgia. Vidalia is a growing place, the schools are great ( not struggling ), and if you prefer private schools, there is one here also. There is plenty to do, and the people are some of the nicest you can meet. If you're looking for a nice house, the housing market is very moderately priced too.

Is the Paul Anderson Youth Home still there? What an incredible humanitarian this gentleman(Paul) was.The strongest man in history and the compassion he had for young men by wanting to help and console with them.

Yes, the Youth Home is still open and going strong. The Home has truly been a blessing for many young men.

How is the winter temperature in Vidalia? Is there problem with knats or no see ems in that area? Are there good golf courses and affordable to play? My wife and I are from Calhoun,Ga and are living close to Tampa. We have been here 6 years but the cost of insurance and property taxes are too expensive. We both miss our roots but want to stay away from too cold of weather, Thanks,

Vidalia is a great place to live. It has lots of places to shop and to eat! We have great schools. Our town has grown majority in my lifetime. When I was little we only had McDonalds and Western Steakhouse. Now we have all kinds of eating places. We also have some of the nicest people in the world after all we are southerns. We are getting a new hospital. There are lots of little quine shops to visit. We are also only about an hour and a half from Macon and Sav. If there is not enough here for you we have it just down the road.
