Dig Deeper on Fort Stewart

Hinesville is a small, out-of-the-way military town mainly supporting – and supported by -- the large military installation at Fort Stewart, home to the U.S. Third Infantry. There is some agriculture, timber and turpentine processing, but not a lot else in the way of economic activity. The physical setting and infrastructure are nondescript and there is little of interest in the immediate area. Coastal areas 30 miles to the east offer some recreation while Savannah, 40 miles to the northeast, makes a more complete offering. Cost of living is quite low with affordable homes. Educational attainment is low and the area is fairly isolated from other larger urban areas.

The Hinesville area sits in a mainly level coastal plain with areas of pine forest areas nearby. The climate is predominantly humid subtropical with some moderation from the nearby ocean. Summers are hot, sticky and often breezeless, with most precipitation arriving as thunderstorms. Winters are mild. Persistent rainy periods and some tropical storms may affect the area.
