It is wonderful to walk among historic structures in a place so full of history. There are tours trolleys, cars, horse drawn carriage tours as well as the option to walk at your own pace.

It was so hot, over 101 degrees but there were plenty of places throughout the district to get a nice cold drink. Loved the old historic buildings and houses along the river. Savannah has such atmosphere. The shopping is very good as well.

There are numerous tours of the historic homes in the historic district which can be accomplished on foot. Savannah is a "bucket list" city to consider visiting for a few days. You will not be disappointed.

Stunning architecture, beautiful squares - 22 of them in old town- with abundant shade fom centuries old oak trees dripping with Spanish Moss.

We visited the Historic district and didn't know what to expect, but it was great. The parking was really easy with the kiosk nearby. Anyone with disabilities will have to ask how to get there, as there are a lot of stairs and uneven walkways. We saw 2 freighters come into the harbor and that was real interesting. We had... More

What isn't to like about historic Savannah with all it's beautiful architecture, history, incredible parks, nature, waterfront, shops and great restaurants? Take a city tour first to get some background history and then walk around, stop in several of the parks and just enjoy some chill time. There is something for everyone.

Amazing architecture and interesting history (both from the 1700's and more recent times). Plenty of shade to combat heat on our walk around. A unique atmosphere and experience. The trolley tours are a great way to get an overall picture and your bearings.
