Perfect place for walking. We loved the squares and the riverfront. There are bricks and cobblestones to contend with, but that's part of the charm. We even enjoyed walking on our one rainy day there.

In one sense, Savannah's squares are all alike. . .live oaks, a fountain, Spanish moss. But each one is unique, maybe a different layout, a new story, a statue and certainly with different architecture surrounding each one. Just very, very cool.

It is almost impossible to get a feeling for the beauty of this city with it's many squares and historical homes, churchs and buildings unless you visit.

The historic distric is beautiful. It has small parks on each block and are immaculate . There. Are plenty of inns to stay at and all in walking distance to te river walk. There are also many things to do besides eating and drinking such as taking a ghost tour, walking, or historical trolley tour.

She made the tours exciting. She has a great accent. I would recommend her to my family and friend. We talked good things about her for weeks after our tours.

We could hop on and off when we wanted to all day long. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable. Several locations to gain access to the trolley.

If you have a bucket list of places you want to visit, Savannah should be at the top of your list along with Charleston. This old city dating back to the Revolutionary War has so much history and beautiful old homes of that era.
