Harris County Reviews

Moving to Harris County was a life changing event. It opened my horizons to a point in which I could see different aspects of life. Some of the people here are lot more friendly than I though they would be due to all the universal stereotypes. One thing that I would change about Harris County is all of drugs that children and teens are getting nowadays. They are destroying their bodies with all of these toxins, chemical, nicotine, and etc. and don't even care.

I've spent most of my life residing in Harris County, Georgia. I went to Pine Ridge Elementary and right on up to Harris County High School. Through this experience, I am able to realize that it was a blessing to grow up in an environment so safe and friendly. In Harris County, I've built a childhood I'll be proud to tell my kids about.
Harris County is a tightly knit community with friendly neighbors and amazing scenery. Harris County also offers a great location for military families to reside due to Fort Benning being near by. Although great for looks, Harris County has not been industrialized and remains extremely rural. This is complicated for grocery shopping, going out for dinner, and etc.
