Crime has gotten worse in the past year. Manny murders, shootings, and gang fights have been taking a toll on the city. The police seem to be have doing a lot to help this problem but I am concerned that the problem will only get worse in the future.

I can not wait to finish college and move back to Savannah to start my life. I want to raise my kids in this perfect little city and grow old looking at the old historic buildings and the warm sunny beaches. In the future I see Savannah becoming only more popular to the tourist. This area is my favorite place in the country due to all the exciting things you can do.
The businesses in the area are ok but could be better.
