High Crime - 6/28/2010||
Very high crime in Savannah, Georgia. Tourists should be aware of their surroundings at all times even entering and leaving their hotel room!
This is a very poor city with more than 57% african americans. Most are living on section 8 with no income.
Homeless people come to Savannah to live since there are so many resources and handouts for them here.
Tourists beware of panhandlers, the city does not strictly enforce the law regarding them and they will bother you to no end!

I have visited Savannah twice in the last 15 months, and I was thoroughly charmed by this beautiful, historic city. Now I am not naive, so I am aware that crime can be an issue, especially in certain areas. I live a suburb south of Chicago. I would love to be able to buy or rent a condo or townhome in the historic district, and spend the winter months there, maybe Jan thru March or April. Any suggestions or advice from anyone. Do people "SNOWBIRD" in Savannah?
