The tour guide was not only very informative however extremely well versed in historical fact. They offer free parking if you are coming from outside the district and a free shuttle from the...

Had always heard that it was beautiful, but you have to see it to understand its uniqueness. Riverfront area like nothing we've ever see - multi-level with cobblestone streets / ramps taking you up and down. 22 downtown squares - each like an old town square but not quite as big and with simply beautiful parks in them. Huge old... More

So much fun and Ito like going back in time. Savannah is just so beautiful and I'm so glad I got the chance to come. The houses and squares are so fantastic. You can spend all day just walking and taking it all in.

Wonderful place to visit! One of the days we took a 3 mile walk serpentining through the Historic District and saw quite a bit of history. It's not too large of a district so if you like to walk I really recommend it! Also, I ran River St (along with several other random runners) and it is just absolutely gorgeous.... More
