An Island Lifestyle: The Landings on Skidaway Island
Savannah, Georgia, is known as “The Hostess City” of the South so it’s no wonder that the city attracts millions of visitors each year. With its unique charm and picturesque neighborhoods, it’s also easy to see why many of these tourists become Savannah transplants. But even when you’re moving to a city as polite and accommodating as Savannah, the question of where to live still lingers. You want a location that affords you proximity to the city without the chaos of city living. You want a location that offers you luxury amenities while still feeling right at home. You want to live at The Landings.
This private residential development is located on Skidaway Island, which is conveniently located to historic Savannah as well as more natural surroundings. Just over 8,000 people live on Skidaway Island so you can make tons of new friends in no time. In fact, community involvement is just one of the ways to meet new people when you choose to make your new home at The Landings. The development also offers a range of activities that will suit your interests no matter what they may be, and is considered one of the top Georgia gated communities.
The Landings has over 100 organizations to choose from, but don’t be overwhelmed by the selection. This welcoming community has a place for everyone, whether you choose to participate in Habitat for Humanity or the Interfaith Hospitality Network, the Landings Woodcrafters or the Kayak Club. And outside involvement is highly encouraged. Many residents are active members of the outlying Savannah community as well, all of which contributes to that feeling of finally being at “home.”
But this exclusive community isn’t just about getting together and playing Bridge on Sundays. The Landings has been in operation for 40 years and is one of the most exclusive gated communities in the country. Your home at The Landings comes with all the perks you could ask for. There is a six championship golf course at your disposal. There are three tennis centers if you want to challenge your partner to a match and two deep water marinas if a day of sailing is more your pace. A fitness center equipped with the most up to date machines will help keep you at your best and there are four swimming pools. Add to that extra amenities like a dog park and biking trails and you’ll wonder why you didn’t move here sooner.
Concerned about living on an island? Don’t be. The island lifestyle is exactly what the doctor (who isn’t far away at all) prescribed. If you need to see a local doctor or get to the nearest hospital, they’re only 10 miles from town and the island is equipped with a first responders team as well. The Landings also has its own full service grocery store selling food, wine, and other small needs and you can easily get to other shops within five to twenty minutes. At The Landings, convenience is key. All you need to do is get settled and enjoy your time off!
