The thing that I like about Darien with my experience living here is the size of the town. The reasons why that I like this is that the smaller the town that you the smaller the amount of money you have to pay to live in the area, however, the disadvantage of live in a small town that there is not enough jobs to work at. What I want to see a change within this area is that there would be more jobs so that the town would grow more larger.

I have lived in Darien, GA with my family throughout all of my life. Like many other towns or cities, there are people whom are nice or mean, and sometimes just down-right creepy. I can say that Darien is a nice, historic location for tourists and little kids to enjoy small events, but it's not the right place for an adult looking for a great art career. There aren't many amusing establishments to my perspective, so if one is bored or needs to go grocery shopping, one would need to drive to the next city.
Darien is a really small city located in McIntosh County Georgia. Darien has a population of about 2,000 people. To really understand how small this city is just know we have only one grocery store, no stoplights, no mall, and only a couple of fast food resturaunts.
