Savannah has long-been one of the most beautiful cities along the Atlantic Coast for visitors, but it is quickly becoming a wonderful location for new residents as well. Since its founding in 1733, Savannah has been a port city with a distinct culture, friendly locals, beautiful Antebellum architecture and a welcoming atmosphere.
According to City-Data, the city's population increased by 8 percent from 2000 to 2012, showing positive signs for both business and residential areas. Despite the city being along the coast and a major tourist area, the cost of living is still less than 5 percent less than the U.S. average. Savannah also boasts a diverse and multicultural population that welcomes in people from all walks of life. Based on a 2012 U.S. Census estimate, there are just over 142,000 residents living in Savannah.
Activities and Attractions in Savannah
One of the biggest attractions near Savannah is Tybee Island, a stretch of Atlantic coastline around 20 miles east of the city center that's the perfect spot for fishing, sailing, biking and sunbathing. Residents have been known to spot Atlantic bottlenose dolphins here as well.
River Street is the city's most famous thoroughfare, as it situated along the Savannah River and boasts many popular restaurants, pubs and nightclubs as well as shopping opportunities in glamorous Southern boutiques and antique stores.
Savannah's Historic District is easily recognizable once you enter, especially during the warmer months when the cobblestone streets are lined with fragrant gardens and Spanish moss trees. This is the largest National Historic Landmark District in the U.S. and boasts more than 20 public squares, relics from the Revolutionary and Civil wars, and several of the city's oldest and grandest mansions.
Moving to Savannah
Even though Savannah is a coastal city, both Interstates 95 and 16 will bring you into the city, as will U.S. Highways 17 and 80, so there are many ways to get around in the city if you are traveling by car with your Savannah moving company. However, if you would rather opt for vehicle transportation services from Allied Van Lines, you can fly into Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, which lies just west of the city center and let the professionals do the heavy lifting for you. There are several other amenities that can make your relocation to Savannah even easier, including full-service packing, box and furniture inventory and no-surprise pricing so that you know you are getting the best possible deal.
