Warner Robins, Georgia, experienced fast-paced growth between 2000 and 2010 that saw its population swell by more than 35% to more than 66,000 residents. The city's resilience during recent tough economic times suggests that it will continue to prosper. The city has an appreciation for the Air Force, which is evident from its Museum of Aviation and the original official motto of the city: "Every Day In Middle Georgia Is Air Force Appreciation Day" - or EDIMGIAFAD for short.

Housing Statistics From May to July 2013 the median sales price for a house in Warner Robins was $128,500, which was up 15% from the same period a year earlier. However, the number of sales during the two periods declined drastically, dropping by 64% to 58, which could have an impact on the already low residential turnover rate of 16%. Around 50% of residents own their homes, while 40% rent - leaving 1 in 10 residential properties vacant. This relatively high proportion should make it easy to find rent to own homes.
Nightlife For a city of its size, Warner Robins does a good job of keeping its residents up late into the night. The deceptively named Mellow Mushroom is a great place for a casual hangout with some drinks and dinner, while for live music you can head to Jus One More on Russell Pkwy. Or maybe you'd prefer providing your own music on karaoke night at Crickets Bar and Grill just up the road? Meanwhile, jazz fans head to Calvins Jazz to hear some sweet tunes.
Weather and Climate The humid subtropical climate of Warner Robins will have you fanning yourself during humid summers that reach average highs of around 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters have the potential to get frosty with average lows in the mid 30s. At least you'll probably never have to contend with snow. Rainfall on the other hand is pretty consistent throughout the year, with about 46 inches annually, which is about 20% higher than the national average. While it's been 50 years since the last significant tornado, it's worth being prepared for the risk of a natural disaster.
Transport and Commute The vast majority of Warner Robins residents drive to work, which is not surprising considering that there isn't a mass transit system operating in the city. Although there's been talk of developing a public transport to serve the community there's no word on when it would be implemented or how extensive it would be.
Local Sports If you're looking for a local sports team to get behind you'll have to settle for the high school teams. Northside High School, home of the Northside Eagles, regularly win the State Championship in football for the division they compete in. Meanwhile the school also has basketball, baseball and cross country teams to name a few. At college level, Mercer University, north of Warner Robins in Macon, will field an intercollegiate football team for the first time in 70 years in 2013.
