Blackshear Reviews

3 reviews
Blackshear Georgia is a very small town, but it is a great place for college students, families raising small children, or the retired elderly to live. My favorite thing about Blackshear is that there is hardly ever any traffic jams, the cost of living is low, there is rarely any crimes, and the whole community is majority friendly! Having originated in Jacksonville Florida, these are some things that I would have never been able to experience there; however, thanks to being a full time college student and single mother of two small children, I am thankful that I was able to find such a refined and small enjoyable town to live in.
Review Blackshear
It's a retirement place, it's quite, it has good schools that care. Also the grocery stores are great
Blackshear is a great little town in Georgia with friendly folks and easy commute to larger cities for shopping and entertainment. Its a great place to live and go to school.
