@ Newsboy - I am dying laughing over some of your posts. In a good way. Can't wait to be considered one of Savannah's "hippie" transplants, though I still shower, shave and wear all my clothes at decent intervals on my bod. It's funny to me how non-welcoming some of the posts here seem to people relocating to Savannah when, in person, my impression was so different! Hopefully the gripes about those of us wanting to move there to work hard, fix up a little house and join the community are just sour grapes and won't translate to me glared at in the produce aisle.

I'm a foreigner. I'm just curious: why do you New Yorkers, used to Manhattan life style, choose to move to Savannah? I see that NY (Manhattan) is fast-paced and glamorous, the opposite of Savannah. It would be a sudden change of life style for you. What are you looking for in Savannah?

While not fast paced, some may take exception with your comment that Savannah isn't "glamorous".

Crime! Crime! Crime! I cannot believe anyone hasn't mentioned the horrendous crime rate in Savannah! Since tourism is SO big, the city does a disservice by keeping it quiet. Anyone in Georgia can tell you about Savannah...outside of GA it is relatively unknown. Fairly safe during the day, but you have to watch where you go at night ALWAYS! A friend and his wife went out to dinner the other night, he went to put the food in the car, someone grabbed him from behind, whipped him around and bashed him in the face with a three inch pipe three times. His jaw was hanging from his face. Then he robbed him and left him for dead. This stuff happens ALL the time. Google it. And my husband and I are from Savannah. I would move to Asheville in a heartbeat if we didn't have family here. BEAUTIFUL city. Grass is always greener on the other side.

Okay WNCBadWolf..you've got me laughing my ass off! I'm from Greensboro, NC about to move to Savannah in August to go to SCAD. From what I've heard, there is a lot of crime in Savannah. I can't imagine it being much different than here in NC. I think its made such a big deal there because the crime rate is in ratio to what I would assume is a much smaller population in a dense area. I don't know, but I keep hearing the same thing when I call to check on apartments in my price range..this is in the hood or you don't wanna live here. I really want to live downtown but I want to be safe and not pay $700 or $800 a month to live there. And Newsboy...thats great news because I am a lesbian and am happy to know that our community is out and visible. I have no shame and am excited to be moving to a community where my lifestyle will be understood and welcomed.

Its funny to me to hear some people talk about crime in Savannah. Sure, there is crime, we're no Mayberry by any means. For those who truly know Savannah, we know that there are certain (bad) areas of town that are mixed in with the good. Would those certain areas make me think that crime is bad all over town? Certainly not. Especially not in the Historic District where most tourists tend to focus their attention on.
Would I say that you have no chance of being mugged in Savannah? Of course not! You have that chance anywhere. Whether you're in West Savannah, Pooler, Liberty City, or Tybee Island.
Personally, I feel safe at night when I was walking Forsyth Park or down Broughton Street. Heck, I used to ride my bicycle down the numbered streets parallel to Victory back and fourth from Wilmington Island day and night. I was fine.

Of course, that was my experience. It was and has been a positive one. Others may or may not have my same experience. Savannah is too beautiful a place to not consider because a few people on a forum had a negative experience. Just use common sense when you're out on the town & enjoy yourselves!

BTW, off the top of my head, I can think of more good areas of town than bad, but that's just me.

Default Family looking to move to Savannah

We are looking to move to a place where we can afford to live near or on the water. We live in Miami, but we are far from any water. The places near or on the water are just way too expensive, and not family like in any way shape or form. I have 3 sons who currently go to private Catholic schools. I am a teacher in a public high school here.

I currently hold a Masster's in Reading and a Specialist degree in ESL (English as Second Language). I am completely bilingual, and I was born in Atlanta, GA. I am certified to teach in the state of Florida and have been for the past 16 years at the high school level.

My parents are from Cuba, but living in Miami I am so tired of hearing about Fidel. I have never been to the island, I was born here, my children were born here, etc.. I refer to myself as a Cuban cracker.

I need to know the salary of a public school teacherin Georgia, the contract, etc..The prices of a homes with at least 4 bedrooms and 2.5 to 3 baths near or on the water.

You might want to look into teaching in the Hardeeville, SC, area -- a friend's mother taught ESL in the Jasper County and Beaufort County school systems.

I thought Florida schools payed much better than Georgia schools, or even South Carolina for that matter. If you're looking to get out of Miami and move north, have you considered any part of North Florida?
