I love this town! It's quiet and has great schools. We are also very close to everything but not so close to the business district that my kid cant play outside due to the traffic. There is plenty of forest still left for there to be wild birds and other animals, like rabbits.

Living in Martinez Has been a good experience. I was raised in Martinez and have enjoyed going to school in this community. We have been blessed to live in a great neighborhood with equally great neighbors. There are walking and bike paths near us as well as parks and ponds making outdoor activities an easy way of life. The nearby river provides opportunities for fishing, kayaking, trails for walking, running, biking and simply enjoying nature. Martinez is also know for its great schools, shopping areas and restaurants. Martinez is a great place to visit and to live!
There is always something to do in Martinez, GA. Being the home of the Masters golf tournament, you can expect to have fun sitting in traffic during Masters week for at least an hour wherever you go!
