In Coastal Georgia: Expect 844,000 residents by 2030
Those from the Northeast see coastal Georgia's average home price of 260,000 as a bargain. Those who suffered through recent hurricane seasons in Florida see Georgia's coast as protected.

Why is Georgia's coast considered protected from hurricanes?

The theory: Savannah is positioned in a fortunate place. We have the "Georgia Bite" to protect us. Just look carefully at a map of the southeast United States. It looks a lot like a sandwich that somebody took one bite off of. Savannah is right in the middle of that bite-mark.
Basicly South of Beaufort and north of Jax
The Gulf Steam is 50 miles offshore here. The Gulf Stream is a strong current of warm water that affects the paths of hurricanes. It tends to steer storms north.
The Georgia Bite also makes a clear line in the water, Somewhere off the coast of Florida, about 20 miles out, you can see the line in the water where the sea changes from green and skanky to clear, blueberry-popsicle beauty.
