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

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

Quaint small downtown with "restricted" shopping area that offers parking and shops in a 2 to 4 block walking area. Nice alternative to mall.

The shops were cute and people were polite, but it was pretty expensive, with the exception of the coffee shop. It was reasonably priced. The book store is worth checking out. I wouldn't go out of my way to check downtown or, but if you're here anyways, why not?
