Port Wentworth is a small town outside of Savannah, Ga. It is a close-knit area, with a strong family feel. Because of how close knit it is, it can be difficult to find work in the town, but there are areas close by where you can find work, for example: Pooler, Rincon, and Savannah. There is not much of a night-life here, but again there are areas close by where you can find something to do. Pooler has some fun places to go at night, but downtown Savannah is Really where the most fun to be had is. I recommend Port Wentworth to those for a nice quiet place to go home to that is centrally located.

I love it here!! My grandparents have resided in, what we call, the "Old Port Wentworth" area for almost 30 years! Its very peaceful, low crime rate, nice neighbors, and the police and fire department is dedicated to the well being and safety of all the residents. This is the perfect place to start a family, move your family, or even retire!
Its a very sketchy town. Cops are terrible. People don't have any respect for anyones else. I highly wouldn't recommend living here.
