Spalding has many great things to offer: good schools from elementary to high school, plenty of good restaurants, and good grocery stores with good products.
I have been living in Spalding County for almost 2 years since getting out of the military. I love the smallness and closely nit part of the communities here. They have several parks for families to get together and spend quality time with each other. I love the fact that they are growing as far as stores and more. A really great place to have a family as well as be near the major cities in Georgia.
