About the Savannah, GA Community


Savannah, the “Hostess City” known for true Southern hospitality.

It’s no surprise that residents and visitors consistently rank this beautiful Georgia city with cobblestone streets, manicured gardens, and oak-shaded parks among the world’s most perfect Georgia destination.  Here, you’ll find a unique fusion of old-style charm and new-school style, thanks to a rich history, beautiful architecture, stunning green spaces, and vibrant cultural life.

Savannah’s municipal past stretches back to 1733, when a ship full of English colonists arrived on a cold February day and decided to stay. They named their settlement— the 13th American colony — Georgia, after Britain’s King George II. Early residents lived alongside the indigenous Yamacraw peoples, and the new community began to grow.

Over the ensuing decades, Savannah played critical roles in the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the Reconstruction era. Along the way, the city survived sieges and battles, sea blockades and economic hardship. Well-preserved buildings and homes from these bygone eras still line Savannah’s streets.

As the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States, Savannah contains more than twenty city squares filled with museums, churches, mansions, monuments and famous forts of the Revolutionary & Civil War eras. 

Living in Savannah:

Savannah is a great place to visit, but it’s an even better place to live. More than 145,000 people call Savannah home. Residents love the city’s gorgeous parks, coastal beaches, diverse neighborhoods, growing food scene, and vibrant culture.

Ever dreamed of sitting on your porch on a summer evening gazing up at the stars,  or dreamed of a day filled with shopping at independent boutiques, browsing local artwork, and dining on fresh coastal cuisine. That’s Savannah. Perhaps your ideal day involves water sports at the beach, jogging on cobblestone streets, or kayaking through a salt marsh. You can do that here, as well.  As Georgia’s first planned city, Savannah has much to offer its residents. Though Savannah itself is of modest size, it’s highly walkable and known as a bike- and pedestrian-friendly city.

Georgia’s first city offers a mild climate, too. It’s warm almost year-round, thanks to a coastal environment. Winters don’t get too cold, and summers are a perfect time to take advantage of Savannah’s proximity to the beach. 

Perhaps the best thing about Savannah is simply that there’s so much to see and do. Whether you’re a history buff, an outdoor enthusiast, a foodie, a creative type, raising a family, or some combo, you’ll find what you seek in Savannah.
