There is really nothing to do here. Unless, you want to work in a plant, most jobs will have a long commute. The school system isn't too good either. Royston is however, quiet and safe. If you like peaceful, country living, this is the place for you.

Royston is a small but busy town. Home to the famous baseball player, Ty Cobb. There are so many things to do in this town. There are lakes within 15 minutes of Royston in every direction and Victoria Bryant State Park is beautiful.
I went to college in Royston, as well as lived there prior to starting school. I loved the few years I was there as it is a small town with some quality people.
