The fortunes of this central Georgia city revolve around Robins Air Force Base, which generates many highly paid engineering and technical jobs. Several schools have opened facilities in Warner Robins to support the base, as have businesses like General Dynamics.
While salaries are high, the cost of living is low. Inexpensive land, labor and material costs, as well as an excess of available homes built during the housing boom, have all helped to keep prices down.
For residents, the location is another perk. The town offers easy access to Atlanta and the beach, both of which are less than a two-and-a-half hour drive away.Subscribe to Money Magazine
