I had the occasion to go to Port Wentworth and see another part of Savannah I had never been in almost 7 years living here. About one mile from the main gate of the port it's like a small city Southern town with American flags flying on the front lawn. Clean and neat small homes for the most part well maintained.

Moderately priced and convenient for work at Gulfstream, the Port and less than 15 minutes to downtown.

For those looking to move to Savannah you really need to get in your car and see all of the communities surrounding what you envision as " Savannah". You can't possibly do that in a day or two trip. I guesstimate to make a serious trip for that kind of change in your life you prolly need a week to find a candidate for a short term rental THEN buy.

I've lived in the Savannah area twice, first for four years back in the early 90s and now since 2009 ... and I've yet to see all of Chatham County. I was just thinking the other day that it's probably been a year since I went through Georgetown or out to Richmond Hill. I may ride out there just to look around and see how the highway construction is gong.

We actually were thinking of that area to check when we are down next week. My only concern was I heard traffic over there could be rough, but that's relative when you live where I do and a 2 mile drive takes over 35 mins at times.

I am beginning to like this semi-regular Pink's Travel Journal publication. Goes well with Newboy's Restaurants in Review and Airforce Guy Newswire. I haven't really ventured around Port Wentworth or Garden City or experienced this much bespoken "Hwy 21".. Maybe one day on a drive that takes me up that way. Except one day driving across that little bridge up that way on Rt 170. Looking to the port and mill, while seemingly in the middle of nowhere, a very interesting mix of industry and swampland. This is a good way to get to the Wildlife Refuge.

ALSO ... just to clarify ... GENTLEARTS created "Savannah Restuarant Reviews" (which has mostly been hijacked by PINK CADDY). My baby is "What They're Saying About Savannah."

But AIRFORCE GUYS "Newswire" is indeed spot on!

The original part of Port Wentworth, next to the port, is mostly older (1930- 1950) bungalows
Port Wentworth north and west of I-95 is mostly rural with 5 subdivisions built within the last 10 years
there is Much Less Traffic on GA 30 than on GA 21

In some areas of major cities today across the U.S. " bungalows" are very much in demand. I think they call it
"trendy". Usually, the only way one can buy "trend" is to buy well ahead of the curve. That is ,"before the train leaves the station".

I personally think those home are charming and for the money a couple or small family would do very well with them. They certainly are not cookie cutter homes. Lol. Where else can you buy homes 10 minutes from Savannah for $40,000 and not be in the "hood" ?
