Twiggs County Resident Enjoys Dining in Perry

Twiggs County Resident Enjoys Dining in Perry

I am not normally one to write a review about my experiences at restaurants on my blog, not for any real reason, other than I just don't normally think to do it. HOWEVER, yesterday I had the best experience and some of the best chicken salad I have ever had!

I was in Perry, Georgia for a Common Core Standards training at the Board Of Education there, and didn't really feel like heading out to the interstate area for fast food, so I headed to downtown Perry. Oh boy was I glad that I did. I came across The Swanson right on the corner of Caroll Street, and thought, "why not."
