Free things to do around Perry, Georgia

Old Downtown in Perry, Georgia (City of Perry, Georgia)
The Family Motor Coach Association returns to Perry, Georgia, March 15 -18 for the group’s 97th International Convention & RV Expo. It is the 10th FMCA event at the RV-friendly Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter, 100 miles south of Atlanta and just off I-75, the main north-south route for snowbirds.

"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," states the Perry visitor website. "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."

Perry prides itself on being "the home of Southern charm and hospitality."  Here are free things to do around Perry to get a feel for that Southern hospitality.
