This was probably the worst place I ever lived in my life. To be fair, its not all bad, but I would absolutely avoid this place if possible. VERY HOT AND HUMID about 9.5 months per year. Also, lots of bugs (gnats) that fly around and are a constant nuisance. What very brief winter occurs here is really nice in comparison to other parts of the country. Night life is non existent and doesn't pick up any where near the city. NO real attractions that are worth mentioning. Dining options are pretty lame as well basically consisting of chain fast food places and other restaurants. One very small positive is that many people are friendly, but I wouldn't say it was significantly more noticeable than many other parts of the country. A REAL POSITIVE though is that its pretty cheap to live here. HOWEVER, ONE MAJOR NEGATIVE is that the crime in this area to include adjoining Macon is ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. There are neighborhoods where you can mostly shield yourself from this, but everyone eventually has to leave the neighborhood and go into town for things. OVERALL, I would AVOID this place if possible. If you have to move here its not the end of the world I guess, but I would absolutely try to find another job, new station if your military, or beg your employer to reconsider your relocation.
