First time here and I have enjoyed my stay. We stayed at a historic Inn. The whole center is very touristy. You can walk most anywhere. Leave your car parked and walk,walk,walk. Visit the Riverfront and sit and watch the smaller boats and huge ships pass you by. I was there and heard a group of young adults from various... More

The azaleas blooming, the moss hanging, the beautiful homes and mansions. Love this special place. No place like it.

A city of architecture, beauty, culture and southern hospitality - how can you go wrong - gorgeous squares, beautifull houses, mysterious Spanish moss - if you want a taste of the south nothing else competes - Charleston, nice, but NO sir!

First visit to Savannah and we can't get over the stunning architecture and parks. Great to hear all the history behind buildings and statues and the people watching is always a good time.

There are a number of distinct districts with a lot of different styles. VERY cool! Also, walking the area and going through all of the squares is SO beautiful with the HUGE trees!!

Of all the cities in the world, this is my favorite. Beautiful architecture, delicious food, abundant history, and flamboyant personalities make for a most charming Southern place!

we were able to walk right into the historical district, enjoy the parks and monuments, photograph the interesting architecture, churches, historic graveyard etc. Lots of interesting restaurants in the downtown core. From Savannah we were able to easily access Tybee Island and view its historic lighthouse and explore the business district.
