Small town charm,

big city culture.

Just a few miles from Retreat, you’ll discover the family friendly town of LaGrange. Here, you’ll find this charming town teeming with fashionable clothing boutiques, an old-fashioned sweet shop, gift & antique shops and a sophisticated arts scene. A leisurely stroll through the tree lined historic downtown captures the relaxed air of a sophisticated, progressive small town. All of which can wet your appetite for gourmet satisfaction found throughout town at the many fine-dining and casual restaurants.

If you fancy yourself in a mood for the arts, the Lamar Dodd Art Center – part of LaGrange College – offers works from Rembrandt, Dali, Picasso and more. Or perhaps you want to take in a concert; the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra performs an annual five-concert season and an annual Pops Concert sponsored by the LaGrange Symphony Guild.

If it’s the basic staples you’re after, you are in luck; the simple convenience of a Wal-Mart that you could get lost in conveniently sits between downtown and Retreat. For a quick lunch, grab a stool at Charlie Joseph’s and devour one their world famous hotdogs or a patty of beef. This iconic institution has been serving customers since 1920 and is as original as they come.
