Had a great time walking around the historic district and enjoying the squares. Of course we had to get pictures in the park where Forest Gump sat and told his story.

Beautiful houses and parks. So much to see. We took one of the trolley tours to get a good appreciation for the area. You can purchase one or two day parking passes at the visitor's center to park in one of the city parking areas. If I am able to go back for a few days I would purchase one... More

Once you are downtown it takes you back about 50 years ago with the look. Lots of southern history to explore and do not forget the ghostly element at night. There are many eateries nearby and places to see so enjoy day and night.

As a former British Colony, it was amazing to see Federal Style Architecture south of the Mason Dixon. The addition of Oaks with Spanish Moss add to the charm of the place. The different sections of Savannah's historic district make it enjoyable to observe the different styles and influences that impacted this city. I also loved that historic neighborhoods have... More

My wife and I spent two days in Savannah walking the squares and historic district. Time seems to have stood still in these quaint neighborhoods with many older homes restored as either single residences or B&B's The city is very tourist friendly with a visitors center with an museum and easy access to city trolley tours. There are 3 different... More

There is so much history to see...all withing walking distance of the river front. Try a self guided tour where you can take your time and really enjoy what you are seeing.

I like the people and food and the staff at the hotel. The River Front was a good place to shop and the food was excellent at Joe Crab
