Greensboro is one of the small towns in central Georgia near Lake Oconee and the Oconee National Forest. Although it is quite rural in this part of Georgia it is an easy drive to Athens (University of Georgia) and Atlanta. The recreational opportunities are quite extensive thanks to this huge lake (2nd largest in Georgia) and National Forest. Greensboro itself is a small town of about 3200 and the county seat of Green County. Many luxury resorts, developments, and golf courses have been built along the shores of Lake Oconee.
Large active adult communities have been built here in recent years because of its beautiful setting and proximity to Atlanta. So the area represents a mix of charming old southern town, big active communities, and a huge lake.
