Pooler is in the fastest growing area in Georgia, and with this distinction comes the normal problems of traffic jams which add about 10-15 extra travel time. This explosion of growth also means there is no shortage of jobs.
Pooler has several activities to keep you busy (Tanger Outlets, multiple stores and restaurants, entertainment venues), and offers extracurriculars for children. The city have little to offer after 10 at night, but Savannah is located an average of 15-20 minutes from Pooler and has a large selection of bars and clubs. The beaches of Tybee Island are about 30 minutes away and Hilton Head Island is an hour away. The Savannah airport is located off I95 in Pooler.
There are occasionally safety concerns but the city is overall extraordinarily safe. The Savannah Chatham County Public School System is not the greatest but there are good choices for school and the homeschooling community if very supportive.

Pooler has it all! It has great shopping and restaurants, close to interstates and businesses! The houses are nice and have great amenities. Public schools do not have good performance and results in relation to other connecting counties.
What I love about Pooler is how much the city has changed and grown. When I first moved to Pooler, it was just known as another part of Savannah, Georgia, but as more and more people started traveling, more restaurants and businesses were being built. Not only do we have a wide variety of restaurants now, but we also have an outlet and we are building a hospital close to where I live. All of this is great, but one thing I would change about Pooler is how many trees we have to cut down. I understand that trees in some areas need to be cut down to build businesses and shops, but at this point, they keep cutting down trees where it is not necessary. I personally believe that some trees need to stay where they are because every part of a tree, from the leaves to the roots, contributes to climate control.
