Upon first glance, Savannah, Georgia is a dynamic yet charming southern escape, with its perfectly-planned 22 squares, gracious antebellum mansions, and a picturesque waterfront. Stay awhile, and you will soon realize that she is an unparalleled beauty with a past and present so vibrant you will never want to leave. Award-winning restaurants, museums, and hidden gardens dot one of the nation’s largest, and by far its most breathtaking, historic districts.
Beyond downtown, those looking to make the most of the perpetually warm weather will enjoy more than 30 golf courses, the Tybee Island beach, or finding their way in the endless rivers and creeks that wind through the marsh. Ten colleges and universities, including the world-renown Savannah College of Art and Design, refine the artistic and intellectual culture and the proximity of Hunter Army Airfield and Fort Stewart provide a rich military history.
Those deciding to plant their roots amongst Savannah’s 300-year-old oaks can choose from many neighborhoods that fit their lifestyles. Homes in the downtown historic district, midtown areas such as Thomas Square, Starland, and Ardsley Park are conveniently located and provide walkability. The laid-back golf communities of The Landings, Savannah Quarters or Southbridge offer homes in every price range. Those living on the barrier islands can enjoy boating and adventure right outside of their door. The suburbs of Pooler and Port Wentworth, plus the more rural nearby cities of Richmond Hill, Springfield and Guyton provide an affordable living, excellent schools and room to roam.
Conveniently located between Charleston and Jacksonville, the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport is perfect for travelers with destinations anywhere in the world. Atlanta, Macon, and Augusta are easily accessible via I-16, as well. Savannah, The Hostess City, is just the beginning, but there is no better place to start.
