I loved the little shops and restaurants of this area. I highly recommend visiting Ellis Square and City Market.

If you love to walk this is the place to be. We also rode bikes in this area and the sidewalks were wide and the cars were very accommodating.

The Lady & Sons, Civvies, the big Candy Store on the Riverfront. Plenty to see just walking around. Enjoyable to sit along the riverfront and chat with friends.

We walked around Savannah and enjoyed discovering new things. We didn't fancy the carriage ride or the trolley bus and it was easy enough to walk from square to square taking in the sights.

The historic district contains more than twenty city squares filled with museums, churches, mansions, monuments and famous forts of the Revolutionary & Civil War eras. One of the best ways is to take a horse and carriage ride around town. Simply beautiful. A tour will provide you with information on the many historic mansions.

Savannah and the historic district are a wonderful way to spend the day walking this beautiful area. The city maps are well marked and easy to follow. We took one of the trolley tours the first day and heard the stories and marked the sites we wanted to visit on our maps The next day we spent the day leisurely... More

The historic district is fairly compact and you could do it all on foot. Almost every square is really intesting. We used the Savannah touring company shuttle bus with the on/off privaleges. The cost was $28.00 per person but it was well worth it. The guides explained the sights and attractions of almost every square and sights at other locations.... More
