Meet Savannah, a historic city with a revered past, a vibrant present and an exciting future. Savannah, est. 1733, brims with an atmosphere and charm fostered by residents who have cherished and preserved its past. Their love of history is embodied in the beautifully restored homes, churches and public buildings that grace the city’s unique, tree-filled squares and that affection has given rise to a tourism industry that’s boomed dramatically since the mid-1990s.
Energized by the upsurge in tourism and other positive economic factors, Savannah is in the enviable position of being able to use its past to enhance its present and future. The city’s Historic Landmark District is in the midst of a commercial revitalization that’s spreading to the midtown Victorian District and spilling over into the eastside islands, the fast-growing Southside and the industrialized areas west of Savannah.
Today nearly 300,000 people call the Savannah area their home. Many have been drawn here because of the opportunities for future growth. The economy here is based mainly on ports, manufacturing, tourism and the military. Savannah continues to maintain steady growth and is the heart beat of a prospering Georgia economy providing opportunities to families looking for a community with a future, economic stability and a stellar quality of life. We welcome you to become a part of our community, enjoy the family-friendly lifestyle, the great outdoors and to be a part of a growing community and region.
