Happy Military Family at Home

Richmond Hill

Richmond Hill is well known for its award-winning public schools and tight-knit community feel. These reasons alone make it a popular choice for families PCSing to both Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield, as well as families simply relocating to the Savannah area for work. In Richmond Hill, you’ll find homes and apartments at every price point, as well as a vibrant sense of community and small-town vibe (despite it being one of the fastest growing cities in Georgia!)

Top Things To Do In Richmond Hill:

Richmond Hill is a coastal town that sits on the Intracoastal Waterway, so it’s easy to spend the day on the water kayaking, boating, or fishing. You’ll also want to check out Richmond Hill’s historical offerings, Fort McAllister State Park, and fine selection of shops and restaurants. Richmond Hill is also the home of many family-friendly weekend events that usually take place at J.F. Gregory Park, the most famous of which being The Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival.


If you are looking for the shortest commute possible to Fort Stewart, you’ll want to look for a home in Hinesville. Because of its proximity to Fort Stewart, many of your neighbors will be military families, and you’ll enjoy a lower cost of living than in some of the other locations on our list.

Top Things To Do in Hinesville:

Although it’s a relatively quiet town, you’ll enjoy the town’s Thursday Farmers Market, parks and museums, and annual festivals such as Blues, Brews & BBQ, The Scarecrow Stroll, and The Small World Festival. Looking for a unique family date night? Take a short drive to the Jesup Drive-In—Georgia’s oldest drive-in movie theatre.
