I just got a job offer in downtown Savannah, and my wife wants to go back to get a masters--she's decided to go to Georgia Southern because of its proximity. I know that between Savannah and Statesboro are Pooler, Bloomingdale, Guyton, Ellabell, Black Creek, and Pembroke. I know absolutely nothing about these towns. How would you describe their attitudes/feels? We're 29 and 24, athletic/active, politically moderate, non-religious, like to be outdoors, and appreciate good restaurants. Are any of the towns between Savannah and Statesboro possible matches for this combo?

What is your wife's course of Study? Could she get her master's at either Armstrong State University or Savannah State University? It could be a better fit for the two of you than trying to make it in one of those small towns. I think you would find them religious, politically conservative and few, if any, good restaurants.

Unfortunately, the program she wants to pursue is not available at either Savannah State or Armstrong

Are you planning to rent something? There are less conservative people dotted throughout the area. As long as you are moderate in your ways, anywhere will be okay. There are some newer, as well as established areas, around south Guyton (just west of Bloomingdale) that might be about right.

When you get here, you better nail everything you own to the floor/ground or it will be stolen. Moderate is one thing, but how about quirkey? I came here as a tourist for years and loved the history of the city, BUT if the economy was better, I would sell my home I have restored and move. If you live in one of those towns you listed, you will have an abundance of trailer trash rednecks who think they are better educated than they are. When you go to one of the resturaunts to enjoy, you WILL be confronted downtown by homeless panhandlers and scammers trying to hit you up for cash. Wish I could tell you better things, but moving here you have my deepest sympathy.

I vote Pooler because it's growing and a lot of young people in the military live here. They are active and work out a lot. There is a YMCA with a good gym in Pooler. I don't know about the other places for young people, but I think Guyton is a cute little town. It seems to me that you would want to stay as close as possible to Savannah.
