A cheap cost of living paired with great food, endless things to do and the charm of “Southern Living”, you can’t go wrong here!  Home to hundreds of restaurants, large retail stores, entertainment complexes, parks and recreation areas. Family entertainment is easy to find as well as fun, outdoor things to do.
