Living in Coastal Georgia

    IMG_0277Living in Richmond Hill Georgia has to be one of the best places I’ve lived in the past 40+ years.  It is a small coastal community filled with Georgia charm and beautiful scenery.

    Having lived in huge metropolitan cities like Atlanta, Houston and Dallas Texas, and Athens Greece, Richmond Hill is my kind of Mayberry where everyone knows each other and looks after their neighbors.

    Coastal living has it’s advantages and disadvantages.  The best part of living on the coast is actually utilizing all of the natural resources we have in our own backyard.  We can crab, kayak, and fish off of our dock, take the boat to one of many uninhabited islands, or simply enjoy a nice glass of wine and bird watching on our deck.  The weather is always beautiful and we really don’t have winter so far south.  The last time we had snow with any accumulation was 1989.  We had one inch of snow and our city closed down for three days.  Crazy!

    The only negative I can truly speak about is the “BUGS”.  We have such a tropical climate the bugs thrive here.  We have everything from “sand gnats” to the biggest mosquitos you’ve ever seen.  However, a little spray, burning citronella, and a lot of swatting make it bearable.

    The town of Richmond Hill has so much to offer everyone of every age.  We have beautiful Historic Fort McAllister, several marinas, waterfront restaurants, and many activities including 4th of July fireworks, Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, and a weekly farmer’s market with fresh, local produce.

    There are numerous neighborhoods with many amenities, including The Ford Plantation, Buckhead, Waterways Township, Richmond Place, Redbird Creek, Mainstreet, The Bluffs, Marsh Harbor, and more.  Amenities include community pools, docks, playgrounds, and various other wonderful neighborhood features.

    Probably the best part of living in Richmond Hill is being so close to lovely Historic Savannah.  We are literally only a few minutes away from one of the most beautiful Historic Southern Cities in the world.

    There really isn’t a better place to live, in my opinion, than Richmond Hill.590 Riverbend Kayak pic
