To be honest, being raised in Watkinsville, Georgia was one of the greatest blessings ever bestowed upon me. The schools here are great, we have a great police force, a great firefighting force, and UGA is just right down the road. I always try to give back to this town as much as I can, because I know it is good for me and good for my fellow neighbors. Watkinsville really helps Georgia, and the USA, to be a much more happier and sustainable land.

Friendly, small town feeling, where people smile and say, "Hi and Good Morning!". Keep commercial growth under control so development does not get out of hand.
Watkinsville is a nice little town with many stores and restaurants. The people are very friendly and once you spend a little time to get to know them, you will understand that Watkinsville is a small, happy town that everyone wants but can never find
