Statesboro is a college town. Georgia Southern University is a great school with a beautiful campus, and lots of good looking people. The weather is pretty nice year round (January and February are the most undesirable months to me). The town has all the modern conveniences you would need (Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes, and a small mall). However, there really isn't much going on around Statesboro outside the college lifestyle. Savannah and the Georgia/South Carolina coastal region is easily accessed, however, by a 45-minute drive to I-95.

you should most definitely know that it gets HOT in the 'boro during the summer. it is not uncommon for the heat index to exceed 100 for weeks on end. so if you choose to move during the summer, beware! you probably already know that statesboro is home to Georgia Southern University. the population is just under 30,000 (plus the 18,000 students). I am currently a student at GSU and I can tell you that there is a Wal-Mart, it's huge and always busy... there's not much of a mall, belk jcpenny and a few specialty stores and thats about it... there is a lot of new development though so the shopping may soon get better... from what I know about real estate in the boro, the southside of town is home to the university and is mostly students. it consists of apartment complexes, and many duplex-type neighborhoods that mostly appeal to students. most of the eastside of town is commercial and is expanding rapidly! the north and west sides are the quieter more residential areas. One thing to always remember is that there's always something to do in Statesboro and when there's not... Savannah is only 45 minutes away!
