Here is some information about us. We are both professionals, Jewish, and looking for a nice town where we would actually fit in. We are both progressive, liberal and would like to be surrounded by other professionals. In addition, good schools, upscale shopping/fine dining are important.

Well? I am curious did you take the job? If you are still deciding I would say you would need to visit. I think that you would be disappointed in the shopping and probably the dining in Brunswick. They are plenty of good places to eat but not many that I would call "upscale" dining. Lots of good seafood. Try Bennies Red Barn on St. Simons. Very good.

We just left coastal Georgia after 17 years and I thought I was ready for seasons and a change but I really miss Georgia and the people. I am hoping that I will feel the same way about my new home state soon but right now I am very lonely for Georgia. We were in St. Marys but spent alot of time in Brunswick.

The schools in Camden County (St. Marys) are very good. I don't think that Glynn County is as good overall but does have some good ones--it would be neighborhood specific. You could live in northern Camden County and drive up to Glynn County--lots of people do it. Camden does not have any Jewish temples. Everyone I knew had to go to Brunswick or Jacksonville for worship.

Depending on where you are coming from the hardest thing to get used to will be the humidity and the bugs. I grew up in the Cincinnati area so I thought I knew how to deal with humidity. HA Southeast Georgia does humidity on a whole different level. Of course you are only cold for a few weeks out of the year so I actually liked it.

Good luck on your decision. I hope you will be happy with whatever you choose. If it is not to personal where are you thinking of working?

Many months have passed, and I'm wondering if you moved to Georgia. If so, what city, how does it measure up to expectations--- and did you experience culture shock coming from Wisconsin? Does the conservative political climate surprise you, please you, or shock you? Always interesting to hear from newcomers. If you're in Georgia --- welcome, and after you're settled, you'll never want to leave!
