Planning a move there (found a home we love) from South Florida. Anyone can tell me - is there employment there , less expensive to live than South Florida?? Any info on Statesboro would be appreciated... just seems like a nice place , very country with some benefits of a very small city ... checked out Savannah , Richmond Hill , Effingham , Rincon & even Valdosta. Statesboro seemed the nicest. Schools seem OK as well.

a well rounded town and lots of students

I've lived in South Florida from 88-91 and again briefly in 1999. I currently live in Statesboro.

Outside of the extreme culture shock you'll experience and assuming you're not a beach lover. You'll like Statesboro. Very inexpensive to live, low crime, and traffic is next to nil.

culture shock definitely. i know some people at Georgia Southern there and basically it is a typical south ga town with a large university there. As far as employment, not much in terms of professional work, yet if all you need is a job they can be found.

the university makes the town better, yet you will probably want to go to Savannah quite often if you want more upscale activities.

Default Looking into Statesboro

I just found out about a possible job in Statesboro and wanted some feedback on it.

I recently relocated to Georgia in order to be with my fiance, who's lived in the Atlanta area for 14 years.

I am East Indian and she is a mix of Asian & Caucasian , so I am always concerned about how we will be accepted into the community. From the other posts I've read, it seems like a progressive place, given the presence of GSU.

We're looking for a quiet place to settle down in and raise a family. I saw on the map, the proximity to Savannah and the shore, which also appealed to me.

I would appreciate any feedback on what it's like to live in Statesboro and general comments on Savannah, too.

Thanks.

You resurrected a nearly 10 year old unrelated thread to say that? Statesboro has a fond place in my heart so I overlook a lot of the foolishness, but you make it hard for me to keep my mouth shut.

^Tell it, Mike. Those posts were pretty 'out there.'

As an aside, I've only heard nice things about Statesboro. And it's very convenient to Savannah for 'city things.'
