Great place to live and raise a family! It’s safe and there’s a lot of great restaurants, shops, and a movie theater.
It’s definitely a growing area!

I've lived in Bethlehem, Ga for about 20 years and one of the biggest things I want to change is sidewalks for the city. The city is expanding, we have movie theaters, more gas stations, more restaurants, more shopping places.People need to exercise and people want to be able to ride bicycles and we should be able walk/ride bikes in the safety of the city so I would definitely encourage our city to find time to expand the city but expand the city with side walks.
My ratings may not accurately display my love for my hometown. My experience in Bethlehem has been a very fulfilling one, and I think it is moving towards an even more enriching experience. The schools do not have the same opportunities as other larger counties, but they do have a staff that is passionate and inspiring. My perspectives comes from a white, low middle class female.
