Great for Families
Georgia Southern University
The Southside was advantageously developed within 20 minutes of both an international airport and historic downtown Savannah. This commercial district is centrally located with quick access to most parts of Savannah. The area offers accessible shopping malls and a myriad of grocery stores and restaurants to choose from. Southside Savannah is also home to the area’s recreational sports district with soccer fields, softball fields, baseball fields, tennis, swimming, golf, and more. One of our favorite weekend destinations is Lake Mayer, a public community lake where neighbors fish, exercise, picnic, and enjoy a pristine outdoor recreation park.
With diverse options for both public and private schools ranging from pre-K to college level, the Southside is an appealing area for families and university students. The Windsor Forest community is home to Georgia Southern University’s Armstrong Campus, a local state college. Head towards the coast to discover the majestic neighborhoods of Halcyon Bluff and Coffee Bluff resting along the quiet Vernon River. The natural landscapes, quiet communities, and salt marsh scenery are breathtakingly beautiful.
