Southside Savannah

Southside Savannah stretches from the edge of the suburbs all the way to Midtown Savannah. The boundaries of Southside are flexible, but are generally considered to include Habersham Woods, Groveland, Coffee Bluff, and Windsor Forest. Southside Savannah is known for its convenient commercial corridor, with direct access to I-95 and the Truman Parkway, home to major malls and big box stores. Homes here are often modest, built in the 1960s and 1970s, with a mix of single-family houses, townhouses, and apartment buildings, but you’ll find some new construction and grand estates as well. Habersham Woods is particularly popular for its central location and its blocks of spacious, traditional houses. Southside is also home to Hunter Army Airfield, the Armstrong Atlantic State University, and a historic waterfront monastery for Carmelite nuns.

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.
