    Union County Reviews

    1 review
    Extremely low violent crime rates with pleasant temperatures in the summer with colder winters than most other counties in Georgia. Snowfall is not that unusual with 7 to 10 inches of snow in winter month storms. People are friendly and courteous and the bulk of the county's residence are from other parts of Georgia and other states. During the fall and spring months, there are many festivals and fairs offering a plethora of activities as well as locally home made crafts and goodies. Union County, the mountain county, is a wonderful area to visit, play and build your dream home.
