    For the folks who live here, this is not a town slogan ... it’s a way of life. Our rural community exudes warm Southern hospitality and a deep-seated belief among our residents that there simply is no better place to be than Metter, Georgia.

    Metter’s beautiful downtown business district and historic residential neighborhoods along scenic divided roadways combine traditional small-town culture with the modern conveniences that come with a location on a major state artery connecting the cities of Savannah and Macon.
