Americus is like living in an Austrian castle town and a southern textile boom town at the same time. The beautiful buildings, the regal culture, and the great food come together to make a splendid part of Georgia.
Living in Americus, GA means being able to embrace a city wrapped and touched in forestry and farmland while sprawling out into a beacon of culture and beauty. Georgia Southwestern State University attracts national and international minds to this beautiful part of the country, and this part of the South has grown because of that diverse touch.
The best areas in Americus are around GSU and in the north side of town, where a lot of beautiful restaurants, stores, and international visitor-friendly hotels built in delightfully graceful 19th-century architectural styles.
Americus is its own city with its own attractions, but it's not too far from other major parts of Georgia. Columbus is a little over an hour away to the northwest, Savannah is a bit under 3 1/2 hours away, and Atlanta is under 2 1/2 hours away.
