Pooler-Bloomingdale, Georgia

Looking to move south but don't know where to go? These two distinct neighborhoods that are part of the Savannah metropolitan area are easily accessible to the city's major airport and basic amenities, while keeping close to the historic downtown district.

Savannah possesses all the charm of an old Southern city combined with a vibrant nightlife and cool college town feel — it's home to the well-known Savannah College of Art and Design . The median home price in the area in 2018 was $184,070, well below the national average.

Pooler is famous for being home to the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum which displays historic aircraft and tells the stories of men and women from WWII to present day.

Since Savannah is a major port city, residents will often spot huge transit ships, and there are also plenty of recreational activities on the water as well, such as fishing at the Tom Triplett Community Park . Residents with a need for speed can find it at the Oglethorpe Speedway Park with weekly drag racing. — Chloe Wilt
