Perry named among Top 10 Best Places in Georgia

PERRY, Ga.-Life is good in Perry. The Houston County was named on Movoto's recent list of the Best Places in Georgia.

The real estate blog examined all of Georgia's cities with a population of at least 10,000 before narrowing it down to 11 (nine of which are in metro Atlanta; two cities tied for 10th place). It used such statistics as amenities, cost of living, median household income, crime, tax and unemployment rates, and commute times to determine the ranking.

The top 10 include:

The 10th Annual Peaches to the Beaches Yard Sale happens Friday and Saturday along US Hwy 341 from Barnesville to Jesup, GA.

(WXIA) -- Perry has been named the safest city in Georgia.

Perry ranks SafeWise's latest list of the 50 Safest Cities in Georgia.

SafeWise used FBI crime data and its own private research to compile the ranking. It cited Auburn's mere 76 crimes in 2012 -- none of which were murder, arson, rape or robbery -- for its standing.
