When is the last time you visited LaGrange, GA? Have you walked through the vibrant downtown – grabbing a hot dog at Charlie Josephs? Taken a quick trip out to West Point Lake? Seen a concert at the amphitheater? Stopped by Wild Leap Brew Co. to visit with friends?

There is a lot going on in this city named the 2018 Live, Work, and Play City by the Georgia Municipal Association.
