This question will get more response in the SAVANNAH forum, as Richmond HILL is an affluent and fast-growing close-in suburb of Savannah.

Agree with Newsboy. Leaving out the HILL in your title is confusing. Thought you might be talking the Augusta area as Richmond County and Augusta are now consolidated and the name sometimes is interchanged. Richmond Hill is Savannah area.

I am by no means an expert on Richmond Hill, but I have been there quite a few times. To me Richmond Hill has become really suburban, and it is mainly one of the zillion of 'oases' for travelers going down I-95. Otherwise it seems pleasant enough to me, with some very quiet and wooded sections. To me, the very ebst place to live near RH, is back the road towards Fort McAllister. There are some very nice and beautiful homes along the riverfront of the pristine Ogeechee River. Back towards that way is extremely pleasant, quiet, and scenic. There are a few developments back that way, if you do not want to live with much space around your house too. I have a good hunch that the schools are probably good quality. People have very good income around that area. Also, it does seem extremely safe, except the main drag through town, U.S. 82. You are so lucky to be able to move so close to Savannah. I am so jealous of you

ALL OF THIS! Except the Coastal Highway thru RH is US 17, not 82.

That whole area of east Richmond Hill going toward Fort Pulaski and Ford Plantation is fantastic -- lots of very upscale developments, condos to townhomes to mansions on deep water access, plus good shopping, restaurants, upscale local boutiques, etc. It reminds me a lot of the Bluffton, SC area. The local government there is doing a very good job of managing growth and new development. It's the best suburban area of Savannnah IMO.

Hey now!!!! Yes yes yes....sir!!!- that is what I meant U.S. 17! We have a U.S. 82 down this way so I guess I had that on my mind, hahahaha.

Now...let me point out a slight error from you, ok? While, Fort Pulaski is definitely east of Richmond Hill, it is more like North-East. Pulaski is more like on the other side of Savannah going out to Tybee Island. McAllister is the one directly east of Richmond Hill. actually it is only a few miles away. You can't even get to Pulaski from Richmond Hill, without going up thru some of Savannah. The Marshes of Chatham prevent that. Also I believe you was referring to all of those little developments such as Skidaway Island, Isle of Hope and so on...you have to go thru southern Savannah to get to all of them too.

Ok, we are even now!!!!!

^^^ YEP! You are right, I meant Fort McAllister! There's a great state park there. Unfortunately, all the new development around RH is encroaching on it pretty bad. Lots of new McMansions have been built right up against the park with their backyards the only green space.
