Savannah GA, USA
Home Sweet Home
Welcome to my web page about living in Savannah, Georgia! Now, if you're looking for a boring, dry, informative article about the pros and cons of living in this historic Southern city, you might as well click away now. But if you're looking for a fun, lighthearted take on what it's really like to live in Savannah, stick around and let me tell you all about it.
First things first, let's talk about the weather. Now, I'm not going to sugarcoat it - Savannah is hot. And I mean HOT. In the summer, it's like living in a sauna. But hey, at least it's a dry heat, right? Just kidding, it's humid as hell. But honestly, once you get used to it, it's not that bad. And there's nothing quite like a cold glass of sweet tea on a hot Savannah day.
Speaking of sweet tea, let's talk about the food. Savannah is known for its Southern cuisine, and let me tell you, it does not disappoint. Fried chicken, shrimp and grits, biscuits and gravy - it's all here, and it's all delicious. And don't even get me started on the desserts. Key lime pie, pecan pie, banana pudding...I could go on and on. Just make sure you have a gym membership, because you're going to need it.
My favorite part of living in Savannah GA is Tybee Island, only 19 miles away! Tybee Time is a laid back quirky little island. With dolphin tours, wonderful restaurants, a light house and a beautiful coastline beach looking out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Now, let's talk about the people. Savannah is a friendly town, y'all. Everyone says "hello" and "how y'all doin'?" when they pass you on the street. And if you need directions or recommendations for a good restaurant or bar, just ask. You can always check out Savannah's go to
FB group here. Savannahians are always happy to help out a newcomer. But fair warning - if you're driving, be prepared for some aggressive Southern hospitality. You might think you're a good driver, but you've never seen anything until you've seen someone try to merge onto Abercorn Street during rush hour.
Of course, we can't talk about living in Savannah without mentioning the history and architecture. This city is full of beautiful old homes, cobblestone streets, and Spanish moss-draped live oak trees. And don't even get me started on the ghost stories. Savannah is one of the most haunted cities in the country, and if you're into that sort of thing, you're in luck. Just be careful not to wander into any cemeteries after dark - I hear the ghosts are extra active then.
All in all, living in Savannah is a unique and wonderful experience. Sure, it's hot and humid, the drivers are a little crazy, and I'll let you find about the No Seeum's on your own, but it's also full of history, charm, and delicious food. And who knows, maybe you'll even see a ghost or two. So come on down, y'all - we'll save you a plate of fried chicken and a glass of sweet tea
