I'm looking to move from Connecticut to the southeast.Have been looking at Northeast Florida but would consider a nice area in southeast Georgia. Any suggestions?

Chatham county is a pretty nice area. If you have kids you might want to consider effingham county because the schools are better. We live in Pooler, Ga. It's a growing place that is about 35 minutes from Savannah, 20 minutes to S.C., and about an hour to hour 1/2 away from beaches in both S.C. and GA.

It really depends on what you want and how much you want to spend. The areas in Chatham county outside Savannah are bedroom communities that were built up around existing towns. Unless you live in the center of say, Pooler, which was a tiny place once upon a time, you will be living in a new cookie cutter subdivision, exactly like what you will find anywhere in the US. And that's fine for some folks... that's why they exist.

Now if you have lots of money, consider St. Simons Island, Skidaway Island or even Hilton Head, which are all full of northerners who have cashed in and moved south. If you're into real culture, try the older neighborhoods in Savannah, Brunswick, St. Marys, or some of the smaller (and more provincial towns) inland. Try reading the local paper online for Jax and Sav'h to get a feel for the place, or better yet, spend a week down here and talk to people who have been here for awhile.

Very well put ellie. I just came thru southeast ga(today)and can confirm what u said is true. Savannah and St Marys are beautiful. I spent the night at my moms in Brunswick and she said that "this is where i am till the end". Southeast Ga is great place to rear a family.
