Southern charm

Wonderful city to explore and get lost in. See where Forrest Gump sat. Try some southern soul food and drink. Enjoy the amazing houses in the city's surrounds.

This was the reason we came to Savannah. The buildings are a sight to see. The District makes it a priority to preserve the history. I only experienced most of the district from the road as each of the houses/museums charges an admission. We were not prepared for that. Great trip.

Savannah is perfect for walking. Nothing is more than a twenty minute walk from the center of the historic district. Be sure to not just walk up and down the waterfront. Walk down Bull Street for a good sampling of the squares and interesting stores! Wear good walking shoes, as you may find yourself on cobblestones and/or walking down a... More

2 of the 3 kids and the hubby had colds so I knew walking would not be the delightful tour mom had in mind :-). So we took the Gray Line Trolley tour for a 90 minute narrated overview. Good choice and good value. Catch the trolley at the Information center every 20 minutes. After the tour, you are dropped... More

We stopped here as part of our road trip. I picked up a brochure at our hotel telling about free tourist transportation in the historic area. Since it is free, you can get on and off and explore on your own. Many plaques describe the historic site and there are many to see.

Wouldn't be the same without the old architecture. Walking through and getting a sense of what life was and how they lived is so enjoyable. And to think that quite a few of these are haunted. To walk it is free, but you can also opt for a trolley tour. Tip: choose a time when the sun is not as... More

We visited Savannah for the first time for our fortieth wedding anniversary. Literally every house in the historic district has a different story. This is a can't miss for history lovers, and for lovers of our country. General Greene, Washington's top aide, is buried on Johnson Square. The squares are the hubs of the historic district, each one unique. We... More

No matter where you walked in this historic downtown, you were not disappointed. The architecture, the greenery, and the pedestrian friendly walkways made this destination so much fun.

We truly enjoyed seeing all of the historic buildings, squares, and streets in Savannah. I only wish we had more time to look around. All parking is on the street which makes it difficult to park a vehicle to look around and take pictures.
