Nestled in the heart of Georgia lies the quaint but thriving city of Perry, where you’ll find a slower pace, a relaxing retreat, and no traffic jams. Recognized as the place “Where Georgia Comes Together,” our city has a tradition of delivering a warm and gracious welcome to visitors dating back more than a century, all the way back to when the city was a major North-South stagecoach stop.
