    Quite, small town feel. Not many restaurants or things to do. Some snobby people. Some overly friendly people.
    Review Blakely
    The weather in this area is pretty great. In the summer, it's hot, but it's southern Georgia, so that's obvious. It starts cooling down, and then after fall, it becomes quite chilly in the winter, which is wonderful. Time goes by and it heats up in the spring, bringing us back into the Georgia heat.
    The local businesses in my town are subjective. If the owners of the business know and like you, the service will be great. However, if they do not like you, you can be sure your service will not be all too great.
