In 2017, the estimated population of Wilmington Island was 15.3k; their median age was 44.4 and the median household income was $76,019.
Wilmington Island is a highly sought-after area just outside Historic Savannah. Some residents call it “island suburbia,” since the communities on the Island form this large and affluent suburb of Savannah, where many residents work.
Wilmington Island has a strong sense of community, similar to that of many small towns. The center of town is filled with residential buildings and single-family homes. It’s a quaint area with great restaurants, two supermarkets, and an assorted retail stores. You can walk and bike this area, but you will need to travel by car to go to Savannah.
People say that the causeways that connect the Island to the mainland were not necessarily meant for transporting only people. During Prohibition, the bridges were built across large expanses of marsh for the singular purpose of having a strong bridge to transport alcohol off and on small boats! However, the Island’s residents remain grateful for those who built these causeways because the bridges made it easier and to travel to Savannah and the other islands.
