Quality of Life

Albany-Dougherty County is a pretty place, no doubt, with its tree-lined streets, its riverfront and lakes, greenspace and historical buildings. But the community’s attractiveness goes beyond that. Whether it’s its four colleges and university, its low cost of living – which is 18.5 percent lower than the national average – its vast array of arts and cultural offerings or its convenient access to the other major cities, beaches or mountains, Albany-Dougherty County is one great place to live.
