Rice Hope Community is located just 15 minutes from historic Savannah, Georgia. The Savannah River is the border between this famed southern city and South Carolina. Historic landmarks styled in antebellum architecture, manicured parks and ancient oaks give Savannah distinction and charm. From River Street’s character to Bay Street’s elegance, Savannah is a favored stop along I-95 for tourists and migratory east coasters alike. Rich in history and southern coastal culture, visitors enjoy getting lost and experiencing the hidden charms of the city. A pedestrian-friendly layout invites meandering strolls down cobblestone streets or a horse-drawn carriage ride for when you’re feeling like taking a load off. Throughout the year, Savannah is home to Civil War re-enactments, food and music festivals and art exhibits, bringing visitors from far and wide to fill up the many hotels and bed & breakfasts. Experience the magic of Savannah at your fingertips as a Rice Hope resident.

Just east of Savannah, Rice Hope residents can enjoy a day trip to the beaches of Tybee Island. With three public oceanfront beaches and two river beaches, there is a different fit for each visitor. Tour the historic Fort Pulaski, Fort Screven or the Tybee Lighthouse. If you’re feeling active, bike along the mile-long beaches that span the Georgia coast or kayak the Atlantic Ocean or Savannah River with easy access to all. Tybee Island is an excellent getaway for Rice Hope residents.
