Welcome to Bainbridge! Here, you’ll discover the true beauty of the Old South and experience the graciousness of Southern Hospitality. In 2009, the Georgia State Legislature declared Bainbridge the “Bass Capitol of Georgia.” The Flint River and Lake Seminole offer abundant fishing and water sports. Both attract thousands of amateur and professional fishermen, and many top bass tournaments are held throughout the year.
Bainbridge has over 200 hotel rooms and several campgrounds, many with cabins or houses for rent. Nearly 50 restaurants will allow you to find the perfect meal at breakfast, lunch or dinner. If you’re looking for a space to host your meeting or convention, the Charles H. Kirbo Center boasts of 33,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 500 seat auditorium. Be sure to visit one of our family-friendly festivals including River Town Days in May, the city’s July 4 Celebration and the Flint River Showdown Drag Boat Races, which are held each September.
Bainbridge is a progressive community of 13,000 people and a wonderful place to live, work, and visit. We offer an abundant supply of recreational opportunities to our citizens and visitors alike. Whether your interest is hunting, boating, fishing, walking, or enjoying a concert at the city’s Performing Arts Building, Bainbridge has something for everyone. Our churches, civic organizations, and business community work in harmony with the city to ensure the needs of our citizens are met. We strive to provide our citizens and visitors with a quality of life and services second to none. We truly are Georgia at its Best.
We are committed to improving and expanding our ability to provide citizens with information concerning the services and functions of our municipal government. Thank you for choosing Bainbridge as your new home and we look forward to serving you.
