Baxley GA is a great little town with nice people and good school systems. I like the small community and the nice people. Th e downside to a small town is the like of entertainment, there isn't much to do in this town but we live next to Douglas GA and Vidalia GA and Jesup GA and there is bowling and movie theatures also skate parks and small play parks!
Review Baxley
It's a small town. It feels very safe. However, it is not an ideal place for anyone over the age of 12. There are no activities for teenagers. There are no parks or theaters. The only place to hang out here is the Walmart parking lot, so that leads to a lot of drug use with the younger crowds. I'd like to see the town grow a bit more and address the issues with the lack of entertainment options with teenagers and young adults.
The small town feel is nice, but I'd like to see an increase on STEM jobs. The town is largely manual labor, or education/healthcare.
The recreation department does a fine job with the resources it has, but I would love to see bike lanes, and ways to encourage foot/bike traffic as a viable option for commute, as well as a healthy hobby.
