Quite, small town feel. Not many restaurants or things to do. Some snobby people. Some overly friendly people.
Review Blakely
Blakely is a small town that most people haven't heard about. I been staying in Blakely all my life and I love the quiet country life. I'm so use to the small town that I don't even know how to adapt living somewhere else in another town. I would like to see a change in law enforcement by solving the cases that they have left alone. And we can also build more restaurants and shopping places. last but not least, we can use more fun things for the kids to do while on school breaks or on the weekends. Overall Blakely is the best there is no other place I would rather raise my kids when it comes to violence purposes.
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.
