Every day, people discover Cairo and Grady County in the heart of southwest Georgia. Cairo, conveniently situated on the Georgia-Florida state line, was incorporated in 1870 and has a rich history of explorers, pioneers and settlers who have made the area home for hundreds of years. The Red Hills region's farm land and timber provide a scenic backdrop for a quaint small town, outstanding quality of life, friendly neighbors and community spirit.
Known as "The Hospitality City," Cairo is the seat of Grady County and is located 30 miles north of Tallahassee, Florida. Our community offers several unique festivals, parks and recreation programs, a movie theater, an antique car museum, a public library, a county museum and history center, downtown shopping, locally owned restaurants and more. Urban planners call this "livability." Longtime residents just call it "home."
