I had a flat tire on my recent trip to Atlanta. Brake Center & Muffler guys did a great job (changed the tire -- using their own tire: used, but in perfect condition) for only $22.25 in five minutes!!! I was impressed -- my father thinks I am making up this story! I promise -- it is true!

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The South is known for sweltering summer temps, and Newnan is no exception. Average summertime highs are 85-95 degrees, including humidity. Thunderstorms have a way of coming out of nowhere as well. In contrast, the winters are actually pleasant here, with average temps in the 50s during the day. Winter nights can get a little frosty, about 30-40 degrees.

Newnan has everything: shopping, restaurants, a movie theater, a bowling alley, a library, and a historic district with beautiful homes. I really like the fact that you don't have to drive very far to be out in the country. The people here are generally very friendly and will give you a smile! For info, go to www.coweta.ga.us
