I moved to Vidalia from a suburb of a major city. I feel safe in Vidalia.

To assume only poor people live here is wrong. There are a lot of well to do families here. Yes, there are the poor too, but every city has poor too.

There is help here to get an education if you want to do so. The sports teams through high school and recreational sports teams are among the best in the state.

The thing that makes Vidalia so wonderful is the people and their love for G*d and one another. Next time you want to bash cities, go visit them, talk to the people.

This is a place you want to raise your children. I invite you to come visit.

I have lived in Vidalia, for 36 years and I have to say I totally disagree with this data. Vidalia is a great place to live and raise your children and now a place my grandchildren are raised. Your data just does not match my 36 years of experience in this city.

have lived in vidalia for 61 years and the only thing I see wrong is that I wish it had more chain restaurants than it does but it does have many privately owned one's. I don't see a high crime rate either. Most people will speak to you. Very friendly people.
