BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN GEORGIA
Lifelong learning has taken on a whole new meaning at Reynolds Plantation and you're invited. One of the finest golf resorts near Atlanta, initiated a series of events called the Linger Longer Living Cultural Series years ago. This series is a blissful crowd pleaser educating the mind and body of club members and the local community. The events include cocktails followed by a presentation/lecture or cocktails and dinner followed by a concert. Subject matter covered varies from music to politics to history. Reynolds Plantation's proximity to the University of Georgia, Georgia's Flagship University, provides a ready supply of highly educated experts to share their talents and knowledge.
September's offerings include:
- The Ruling in the Health Care Case Lecture and Discussion

Meeting new people at lifelong learning events foster friendships based on mutual interests. Finding others with common political and social views over dinner and drinks leads to lifelong friendships as well as lifelong learning. A widowed friend of ours met his now wife at a lifelong learning event and their romance was sparked by a mutual interest in Astronomy.
Reynolds Plantation is supporting all these new relationships through their Linger Longer Living Cultural Series. At Reynolds Plantation, new friends may be made in other areas besides lifelong learning events. There are six restaurants on the property, including The Ritz-Carlton Lodge. Opportunities abound to join over 30 self organized clubs that do anything from following football to arranging moonlight cruises on Lake Oconee.

Late summer into fall is a great time to visit North Georgia, the weather is cooling and the leaves are beginning to turn in the rolling hills of the Piedmont. It's time for homecoming parades, football, fall foliage tours, bonfires and harvest. Take time to soak in the views of the fall foliage reflected on Lake Oconee, relax at the spa, have dinner in one of the six restaurants and meet some new friends. Maybe try water skiing, kayaking or go fishing, play a few rounds of golf or check out the walking and biking trails at Reynolds Plantation.
