Perry is a small town, less than 7000 people. Most of Taylor county (the county where Perry is located) is forest land; much of the land is owned by timber companies, and there are several State parks and State forests surrounding Perry. The huge tracts of land owned by the timber companies or part of state parks is the reason it is such a long drive between Perry and larger towns in the area.
I've visited the area around Perry many times. There really isn't much 'night life' in Perry or the surrounding area. However; if you and your husband like getting outside this area is gorgeous. There are natural springs, rivers, forests, and you are only about 20 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. Kayaking, fishing, hiking, hunting, and scalloping are the sorts of activities you could do if you lived there.
If you want to work, or if you like other activities, then it might be tough living in Perry and you might be better off living closer to Tallahassee or even Live Oak.
