My DH and I will most likely be moving soon to Georgia. Either Atlanta or Savannah, it just depends on which job he decides to take. I'm scared to death to move out of state since I've lived in Indiana all my life and I don't make friends easily. Any Georgia moms willing to be friends? Lol. Also, how is the weather most of the time there? Does Georgia have a lot of hurricane alerts? I know it's down there near the water and that's one of the things I'm worried about. The only thing I've ever had to worry about is tornadoes here. I've been to Georgia once but I was so young that I really don't remember much of it.

We JUST moved from Savannah. Oh how I love that city! DH was stationed there for almost 7 years! We made so many friends, evryone makes you feel like family, 2 of our girls attended performing arts schools for theatre & ballet, awesome opportunity. Forsyth Park, Downtown/River Street, Tybee Island...gorgeous! We travelled to ATL often, its about a 3hr drive. ATL is much bigger with more to do...but it's further from the beach and along with large Cities comes higher costs of living! But, I wouldn't mind living there either.



Let me know if you want any specific info on the area...

Yeah I've always heard good things about Savannah. It's really that far from Savannah to Atlanta? Hmm see how much I know? We were thinking if he took the job in Atlanta that it probably wouldn't be too far of a drive to live in Savannah and him commute to Atlanta. Lol. Guess that's out of the question! I don't really want to live IN atlanta because I heard the crime rate is horrible. BTW, how's the crime rate in Savannah? How far is a beach from Savannah? Cause we don't want to live like right along the water but it would be nice to be near it so our kids could enjoy the beach :)

Ya. It's really that far! lol 3hrs is a minimum, that's like in no traffic to the southside of ATL...getting into downtown can take over 4hr at times! As far as crime in Sav'h, like any city it depends on where you live. My husband was deployed for over 3 of the 6+ years we spent there and I never felt afraid to take our kids out alone...even downtown at 10pm [not that we were out that late often].



The beach is close...we lived in the middle of Sav'h and it was only a 20-30min drive out to the popular part of Tybee Isl. But, Sav'h is a coastal city so there is water/rivers/etc all over. We did have a couple tornado warnings, but never a hurricane. The nice thing about Sav'h was that Jacksonville, FL and Charleston, SC are 2hr away [in opposite directions], Orlando 4hr, Tampa 5hr, ATL & Columbia, SC are 3hr...so we squeezed a lot of mini-vacays in on DH's 4-day weekends!



I haven't blogged in a year and it's nothing fabulous, we live a pretty normal life, but if you want to get an idea of what Sav'h was like for us here's a link...

Okay, thank you! I'll check that out. Yeah I figured there was probably some crime just like every city but I didn't want to live somewhere where it's really bad either. I grew up in a small town and have lived in a pretty safe and semi small town here for almost 6 years. But like you said, it has some crime as well. The biggest thing where I live right now is there's a LOT of meth labs being cooked and so that's always getting busted. But other than that, it's pretty much safe to roam the streets if I want to but I don't really go out of walks much. That's cool that the cities and states are that close in driving time! That would be awesome for me because I haven't been on a vacation since I was a child and even a mini vacay would be nice. Up here, I'm pretty secluded from mini vacays. Lol. That's good to hear about the hurricanes though. I was just afraid because I knew it was in the southern part and near water so I didn't know if they get evacuated a lot for hurricanes or not.
