Georgetown is a very peaceful, quiet, reserved place to live. My home is settled in the banks of Lake Eufala. The only thing I would change is the fact that there aren't many businesses & isn't much to do in town. The closest towns that have anything are Columbus, Ga (about an hour away in one direction) and Dothan, Al (about 45 minutes in the other direction).

Peaceful, quiet and pleasant to live in. The people are friendly and easy to get along with and always want to help out. There is a low crime rate.
What attracts people to mytown would have to be the downtown area. It has very historic sites including: Juliet Gordon Low's birthplace, First African Baptist Church, and The King-Tisdell Cottage. Another reason why tourists love going downtown is for the constant entertainment from local musicians, bands, singers, dancers, and artists. Among all that one can do in Savannah, if the city is just too busy Tybee beach is only a few minutes away.
