  1. http://travel.msn.com//Guides/MSNTravelSli...mp;imageindex=6 Savannah is the sixth "coolest" city in North America, according to this poll.
  2. It's a shame for people who travel to Hilton head/Beaufort by way of Savannah for their first impressions of SC to be shaped by a horrendously bumpy & pot-holed US 17. At least one of the old strip clubs is being demolished. I'm still in some awe as to why I-16 isn't brought over the Talmadge Bridge into SC, and then terminates on I-95 near exit 8. Talk about a great way to expedite traffic between Savannah & Jasper/Beaufort Cos.
  3. I'll see your I-77 in NC & raise you an I-95 in SC. Talk about a road that's in dire shape! Also, I question anyone who thinks GA roads are worse than SC's. All one needs to do is drive US 17, SC 170, US 17-A, SC 642 & SC 14. THEN tell me GA roads are worse.... The worst roads I've ever encountered are in Louisiana & Illinois. The best I've experienced are in Georgia, Florida & Virginia.
  4. Savannah Mega Site out of the running for VW plant
  5. When the day comes that Jasper & Beaufort Cos can be added to the MSA, look out! Hopefully that day isn't too far away.
  6. I always found it odd that Columbus was kept in the 706 area code, even though it is not contiguous with the rest of that area code. It would have made much more sense to have included Columbus as a part of the 229 area code.
  7. Long Beach & Napa, CA, as well as the Woodlands, TX, and Savannah for "Avia". Very nice company to keep, indeed! This is a sexy-"butt" hotel! I'm loving the prospects of this!
  8. Just out of sheer curiosity, I wonder how Augusta & Columbus would stack up against Macon & Savannah if you measured their populations within their pre-consolidation boundaries......
  9. 3rd year in a row, ATL is the busiest airport in the world!
  10. Uhh...You're from New Orleans? Wanna talk about a place that's dirty & unlivable? If you're going to make comments like this, be careful....
  11. I haven't, but I'm hoping it would be something sorta upscale, like a "W" hotel. As far as restaurants, I'm hoping they will be local/regional types, focusing on Savannah flavors (seafood & Southern).
  12. FT. Stewart to add 3900 more soldiers
  13. As the ports in Savannah are the economic engine that drives the rest of the state's economy, I'd love to see the proof that backs up your assertion....... I agree. It's funny how there's plenty of interconnection between the areas now, but just not enough to seal the deal. It's also odd how one can be driving on US 17 in Jasper County, look ahead out over the marsh, and see Savannah laid out before you...yet you're not in the metro!
  14. Saltgrass...yuk! Uninspired Landry-chain cooking.
  15. Then in Savannah, include Hilton Head's Mall at Shelter Cover, with 268,000 sq ft. This thread truly is insane.
  16. History & preservation is one of the reasons people come to Savannah, fall in love with her & her "slow pace", and decide to move here. What you're saying is utter nonsense.
  17. Not no, but hell no! Chatham County taxes are high enough as it is. No way they'd also want to pay Savannah city taxes! Savannah's losing population for many of the same reasons as other cities (white flight, poor public schools, high taxes, etc.).
  18. http://www.savannahnow.com/node/406808 Albeit 10 years or so late, GSU is finally looking at the possibility of moving from I-AA to I-A in football!
  19. This whole land use issue is a load of poo. Ogelthorpe Mall & basically everything on Eisenhower Dr is in HAAF's flight path, yet look at all the development there. Even Wilmington Island is in HAAF's flight path!
  20. http://www.savannahnow.com/node/398187 Job growth in Savannah, Hinesville & Ft. Stewart expected to outpace the rest of the state.
  21. http://www.savannahnow.com/node/396609 Interesting article about new franchises coming to Savannah, and the expansion plans of an existing one.
  22. Georgia Ports keep booming! http://www.savannahnow.com/node/390307
