Wikipedia defines a river as “…a natural watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, a lake, a sea, or another river.”  Perhaps you or your family has had the experience of living on or near a river.  The key word of this definition is “flowing”.  There are things about a flowing body of water that attract many people: the soothing sounds, the visual wonder of the water itself, the sunsets seen through the nearby trees, the teeming of life that you know is there, but sometimes not visible, the fish swimming up-stream. Can you visualize a mini farm with some acreage being home for one of these natural creations?  Well folks, the Savannah Georgia area may very well have a home for you on a river.Riverfront homes in Savannah

Is there any question that our location off the Marshes of the Atlantic Ocean will necessitate many flowing bodies of water on their way to the sea or other bodies of water? Here, in no particular order, is a partial list of 14 rivers and 13 creeks (small rivers) that are part of the landscape for homes in the Savannah Area:

Rivers — Savannah, Tivoli, Lincoln, Ogeechee, Jericho, ICW Wilmington, Back, Belfast, Forest, Vernon, Moon, Bull, Skidaway, and Herb.

As of the date of this writing, the Savannah Area, including Chatham, Effingham, and Bryan Counties, has 101 actively listed homes located on rivers or creeks.  Not the least of these rivers is the Savannah River.  It has a long history and commands a very interesting narrative.  Running directly through downtown Savannah, this magnificent river with its huge barges and ocean-going vessels form the backdrop for homes, townhomes, historic buildings containing condominiums, and let us not forget River Street .
