Looking at the possibility of moving by my InLaws. They live on St.Simons Island. I know the local town Brunswick doesn't have one but what about Savanna? Or do I look to go to Jacksonville Florida which is an hour south? Help please

There are probably Hobbytowns in Savannah and Jacksonville, and likely nothing in between; the GA coast is fairly rural and an excellent place to live. Not sure about standard mom 'n pop hobby shops in either place. Stock up on supplies when you can; there are worse fates than not living near a hobby shop. Here in Atlanta our hobby shops are relatively lame when it comes to model cars and detail parts; they're good for buying paint/glue/scratchbuilding supplies and for kits I hit Hobby Lobby sales or order them from the 'net. We have the biggest Hobbytown in the US and kit selection isn't that great and the prices are stifling; but I have gotten some great deals on closeouts/scratch and dent stuff there, just not on a regular basis.
