I have a post below explaining my situation-23 year old male graduating from college in May with an elementary education degree-looking to move to either Georgia coast (Savannah?) or the North Carolina coast (Wilmington?). What do you think my best bet is in reguards to demand for teachers? Cost of living? Obviously I'm looking for a nice place to live-otherwise I would just move to Gary (they need teachers, and last time I checked its pretty cheap to live there). Any help would be great! Have a great day!

both are beautiful coastal cities. I don't know much about Wilmington, but I know that Savannah is a historic and stunningly beautiful city that is finally coming out of it's stagnant economy.

Historically, Savannah is nice to look at in some spots. Their school system is pretty slummy according to everyone I know who lives or has lived there. Wilmington is a cleaner nice area, but they do tend to get hit by more hurricanes than Savannah due to the way the geography lies. Still, if I had to pick one of the two, I'd pick Wilmington.

Wilmington N.C. is very pretty, but the crime is to high there.

I would pick Wilmington. Just because crime. And I don't know how economy is up there but I wouldn't say its too good in Savannah, thats probably why crime is so bad down there.

North Carolina has high taxes overall compared to Georgia, so if you are concerned about the amount you will be spending in taxes, look at Georgia for relocating. I always look at overall crime statistics, air quality, cost of housing, percentage of college grads, culture, utility costs, etc. There are several websites that compare state-by-state overall taxation and Yahoo has a neighborhood comparison link on their real estate section.
