Skidaway Island and The Landings

Located along the Intracoastal Waterway, Skidaway Island is but a short drive from downtown Savannah. Most of its residents live at The Landings, a large resort community of roughly 8,500 inhabitants spread across 4,566 splendid acres. The community, which started in the 1970s and features a mix of single-family homes and townhouses, boasts six championship golf courses, indoor and outdoor pools, sports facilities, two full-service deep-water marinas, and seven restaurants. Just outside its gates lies The Village, with a grocery store, bank, pharmacy, and library. There are a couple of other small communities on the island as well: South Harbor, located at south end, and Modena Island, at the north end. Residents and visitors alike enjoy visiting Skidaway Island State Park, popular for camping, birding, and hiking.

Living in Savannah

Gorgeous and welcoming, Savannah is lovely to behold and even lovelier to live in. The lifeblood of this city, founded in 1733, is the Savannah River, flowing around and through the entire metropolis. And its heart? That’s Savannah’s legendary urban planning, created by town founder James Oglethorpe. A visionary town planner, Oglethorpe incorporated parks and gardens throughout, with pedestrian-scaled streets. Replicable and non-hierarchical, Savannah’s town plan remained the guiding light for the city’s new developments through the twentieth century. As a result, Savannah is a place that feels utterly livable, whether you’re relaxing on the beach, drinking and strolling on River Street, or just enjoying a delicious seafood meal, surrounded by moss-covered oak trees.
