Why Locals Love Life on Wilmington Island: 4 Reasons to Move Here

"It feels like home!" This seems to be a resounding answer to those living on Wilmington Island. From the water and superb location, to the family friendly atmosphere and the laid-back coastal lifestyle… Residents who move here, seem to never leave. Cora Bett Thomas Realty has polled some of their clients to ask why they love life on Wilmington Island. Here are few of the recurring answers: 

Water, Water, Everywhere

First and foremost- nothing beats an island view. Whether you live in a peaceful waterfront neighborhood or you're more tucked away inland, you have the opportunity to see the water many times a day. The sights and sounds of the coast are everywhere! On your way to the grocery store you drive on bridges and causeways, on your trip to a friends you see the marsh and smell the mud, and on your way to church each Sunday you're greeted with the beautiful waterways you're surrounded by. 

Location, Location, Location

This safe beautiful area is close to both the hustle and bustle of downtown Savannah, as well as the sand and ocean breeze on Tybee Island. Wilmington Island is mostly residential, with a business district complete with everything you need. Located right here in your neighborhood are delicious local eateries, plenty of shopping, and other homegrown businesses… so you are certainly spoiled for choice. You have everything you need right here on Wilmington Island, and many say you never have to leave. But if you are craving a night on the town, or a beach day with friends, you don't have to go far! Wilmington Island isn't just a pass through, it's a destination. It's isolated in a sense. If you come here, you come for a reason. 

Fit for All

Wilmington Island is a wonderful place for all walks of life. The community has both public and private schools for growing families, welcoming neighborhoods on every corner for those relocating, and neighbors that look out for one another. There is a strong sense of community and safety when living here. The sights and sounds are endless and the restaurants and activities are just waiting for you!


Active & Laidback At The Same Time

The islands community has something for everyone. With easy access to coastal waterways, the residents here love to boat on the weekends, take advantage of in-shore fishing, and kayak whenever they wish. Golfers feel right at home with Savannah Country Club right in their backyard. There are neighborhood pools, tennis courts, and unbeatable island views. But amidst all the adventure, the locals seem to live a laid-back coastal lifestyle.
