My experience in Fayette County has been wonderful. The town is small and quiet. Its a great town to raise you children in! Although it's small, they have plenty to do! There are shops and plenty of restaurants to eat at. The school system is also excellent.

Fayetteville is a great town that offers a lot of excitementMy parents had five kids, including me, and we moved to Fayetteville specifically for the school system. It is lacking in the department of things to do, especially for teenagers and young adults. Luckily, the exciting city of Atlanta is less than 45 minutes away. The weather is usually really nice and there are a lot of sport opportunities like soccer, baseball, lacrosse, and swimming teams right inside the town. It's a great town to move to if you have kids or plan on having kids. Although it is a little dull for teenagers, whether its hanging out at Chick-Fil-A or skating at Dazzles, we always manage to find something to do!
To give a synopsis on where I am from, I come from a suburban town called Inkster. 30 minutes outside Detroit, Michigan. Let's just say, sometimes, you have to be on your toes and aware of your surroundings. Last year in February, I moved to Fayette County with my father and stepmother and I can honestly say, I'm so glad I moved here.

My experience here in Fayette County I would have to say it has been astoundingly well. Compared to where I used to reside in, I would recommend this area of stay for people who are retiring or have children. The school systems here are immaculate, police enforcements here are doing their jobs exceptionally well, from what I have witnessed so far. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping outlets to visit. I haven't had to file a complaint ever since I moved here. Though I am 23 and don't plan to stay in the area long, I definitely wouldn't mind residing here again in the future.
