My experience here has been bittersweet. I love the small town life, but there is absolutely nothing here to keep our community together. Everyone here speaks but likes to keep it moving. I am originally from Nacogdoches Texas and I'm use to being welcomed anywhere I may go. Not many times have I lost track of time because someone I’ve never met just wants to hold a conversion. I love the school system here. I do not feel that the tax money is being used towards our children and their education in ways that it counts. I do believe some of the best teachers give their all daily for our youth. We must come together as a community and build our city up one street at a time.
Americus is a small town, where everyone knows everyone. I enjoy living here. If I had the choice of moving away, I would because there is nothing being offered here; no new businesses, no fun activities, no new restuarants,etc. It is slowly turning into a retirement city. I would love for the city to gain a movie theater, bowling alley, new restuarants,skating rink,etc.
I've lived here for almost all my life. It's a small town with its own quirks. The local college, Georgia Southwestern State University, is great. The town, in general, does not have a lot going on. It stays quiet almost year round.
