Just what is it like to live in Liberty County, Georgia? We love it, but sometimes there are a few things that need explaining when company comes to visit. Here’s a list of nine things we’ve caught ourselves repeating to visitors.
1. Yes, we’re actually part of the Georgia coast, and we have more salt marsh than most “coastal” counties.
2. “Cold” and “winter” means that it’s 69 degrees. So don’t judge! We like our weather warm, and we’re glad this Arctic blast that descended upon only lasted for a weekend.
4. Seeing lots of military uniforms is normal and appreciated. HOOAH!
5. There IS stuff to do around here. History, nature, agritourism and outdoor recreation. Yes, we have plenty of places and things to do that will keep you busy and entertained. But don’t take our word for it, check out this blog post from Visit the South with the Top 5 Things to do in Liberty County to get you started on your adventures.
6. We don’t have snow days, but we have had hurricane days. This is just some of the destruction caused by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. It’s being fixed but that hurricane was a doozy!
7. There are three Walmart stores here because we needed them. With over 60,000 residents in our county, not including soldiers and their families, plus the folks that come to Liberty County to shop for groceries, those extra stores were much-needed.
8. It can take at least 30 minutes to get to one side of the county to the other. And that’s during normal traffic.
9. We are “Liberty County Proud” of our community! The very first Parker’s started in Liberty County and they celebrated their 40th Anniversary in 2016. Liberty County Board of Commissioners Chairman Donald Lovette, who coined the phrase “Liberty County Proud” stands with Parker’s owner Greg Parker at the celebration. That same Parker’s greets you when you come to Liberty County via Exit 76. After that, it’s up to you to discover just why we love our community so much!
