"Such a great location. Lots of restaurants and charming buildings and shops. Worth a visit. We ate our Thanksgiving dinner at Swansons. Many shops were closed but window shopping was easy since we didn't have to manage any crowds.

A nice historic little town in middle Georgia. The walk around the square is a walk back in time. Suggest the men find something else to do unless they like hanging out in womens clothing boutique's. The women love these stores but the men will quickly tire of them.

I like a lot of the shops downtown. Offers candy store, clothing, books, home décor and more. Store owners are friendly and the entire down town area is so clean. Rustys, Swanson house and Perfect Pear are restaurants and all of them are delicious! If you're on a budget... catch the sales. Otherwise, if you have plenty to spend, you'll... More

The downtown area is a picturesque small town stroll. Do it in fall with cool weather and go back in time. Enjoy!

We ended up in GA having to evacuate due to storm Matthew. You can walk this downtown in a matter of minutes, but we stopped in at many of the locally owned shops and enjoyed speaking with the owners and their employees. I expected Andy, Helen, Opie and Barney to be strolling down the street. I peaked in the barber... More

Perry is a small down home southern community whose residents are very friendly. The downtown area has nice boutiques and several small businesses owned by members of the community. It is always beautifully maintained and a nice place to stop if you are heading south on 75.

Downtown Perry, GA is one of those small old southern towns that is full of charm and hospitality. Perry was just a dot on the map when you had to use highway 341 to get there. after Interstate 75 was fully connected to Atlanta it started to blossom. It is just a nice place to visit or stop for a... More
