Isle of Hope

So You Want to Live on ... Isle of Hope, Georgia

The Isle of Hope Marina is the only commercial venture on the island. The remainder of the sleepy town boasts postcard-perfect cottages and manors.

It's just a short trip across a narrow river bridge onto Georgia's Isle of Hope. But it's "a quarter mile and a world away from the continental United States," as Julia Kelly remembers her father describing the small island where she grew up.

A sense of community thrives here, only 15 minutes from Savannah. Mansions sit side by side with meager houses.

"They're all mixed in on the island, yet it works," explains Linda Kelly, Julia's mom and a resident since 1970. "Part of the charm is that it has changed very little."

The area's biggest change: the addition of a Piggly Wiggly grocery store in nearby Sandfly. "If we go to The Pig any day between 5 and 6 in the evening, we'll see all our friends and neighbors in the aisles," says Linda...

Note: There is a Super Walmart and a Sam's Club about a 1/4 mile from the Piggly Wiggly which is now a Bi-Lo.
