Watkinsville is a small town with a nice parks, top notch recreation areas, and yearly festivals. It has a home town feel with a top-rated school system.
Contrasting to the East Side – you can take backroads to be in Winder or Ft. Yargo in less than half an hour and the same goes for Jefferson/85. In short, it’s one of those great locations people never really think of as such, so you can find some real gems for young families to
I like the sidewalks on some of the streets. On Edgewood, on Whitehead, and streets like Janice Dr., you’ll see people running, walking, riding their bikes (we took our first long family bike ride last weekend) and people bustling about.
