    My husband and I are looking to visit Dawsonville, Ga. this year to get an idea if this is where we want to spent our "golden years!" From what I have read, it's a small community, in the foothills of the mountains, and the price of housing seems relatively low compared to the great NE! Is there anyone out there who would be willing to comment on the pro's and cons of Dawsonville. We don't want to be in a 55+ community, or any community for that matter. We want a home on about 2-4 acres. I am originally from the south, and this would be moving closer to family, but further from my kids.

    Also, would someone comment on the size of the cockroaches/palmetto bugs in Dawsonville? That's going to be the deal maker/breaker!

    Thanks for any and all info!
