The 22 squares in the city provided a great opportunity to walk through the history of the city. We took the hop on hop off tour which brought us through the city and showed us the historic squares. We were able to walk back to the squares and visit the areas. Very safe.

Very disappointed in Savannah. For those who told me "if you love Charleston, you have to go to Savannah" they either have never been to Charleston or found an area of Savannah that I did not. No comparison. Although theres a few interesting statues here & there at their parks (like any other city in the US) I found it... More

I've heard about Savannah for years, and had just finished reading "Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil" when we decided to take a road trip through some of the SE/S states. Savannah was just 50 minutes from a location we were visiting (Hilton Head Island) and so we drove there to have lunch. We drove through/around *one way*... More

Strolling along James Street, Abercorn and Bull was a walk through the Past. This is a photographer's dream with old trees that overhang and canopy across the streets. The Squares along Forsythe Park and beyond are lined with beautiful houses echoing of times long ago. A must see for anyone interested in amazing architecture.

There were a lot of neat old buildings to see. The architecture was nice and the building were restored to the original look. We didn't go into any of the buildings as almost all of them charge a fee to see. This gets expensive after awhile. We did see St. Timothy Catholic Church which was open to the public and... More
