Perry and the Warner Robins area enjoy a robust economic climate and serve as a center for agribusiness. The Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter showcase Georgia's agriculture each October at the Georgia National Fair in Perry. Warner Robins, home of Robins Air Force Base, offers a spectacular exhibit of aircraft and missiles at the Museum of Aviation. Both communities share the past with the technology of our future.
