I'm thinking of moving South and was wondering about the crime rate, cost of living, area friendliness, etc. of your community. Can anyone give me some ideas? Thanks!

Effingham is a great place to live. I love the schools that my kids are in. You don't have to worry about kids shooting each other.

I too am looking to relocate - how is the cost of living ?? Rent, food, gasoline ??
and the weather - I want a change of season but not the snow

Effingham is nice overall. Guyton has a bit of crime in certain parts of the city limits. Rincon and Springfield have a better hold on their crime. Cost of living isn't too bad. Gas runs around 1.80-2.20/gal. Rent/Lease/Mort depends on what you are looking for in a house. Most nice places are 700/month and up starting at 2 bedrooms. Electricity will run you about 100-250 a month depending on size of house and living habits. Springfield City will rape you for Water/Sewer/Trash Pickup! It's about $46 plus tax, and there's no way around it there. Other than that as long as you watch your speed while driving and don't do stupid stuff in any city limits you won't get in trouble.
