Clarke County Reviews

1 review
Love the small town but city feeling I get by living here, it keeps me from missing where I'm actually from. The kids have a number of opportunities to advance in different sports, and there are a number of parks which is also great for my children. Living in Clarke County has been a welcoming experience and I plan on keeping my kids here for the remainder of their education.
