Love the scenery and mystiques behind this area. All is in walking distance, maybe next time we ride the bicycle to cover more grounds. Many small shops and moms and pops restaurant to pit stop at and help local business. Nothing to dislike.

Beautiful antebellum houses. Makes you think of a slower pace. (But then you have to take into account why there could be a slower pace for "some": slavery. You have to come to grips with the good and bad of southern history.

Beautiful homes and creepy atmosphere. I really enjoyed walking around this area and stopping in the stores around downtown! The restaurants were great, too!

We really enjoyed it via bus sightseeing (Old Savannah Trolley?) tour and next day we used this bus (our tickets were valid for two days) only for moving some stops and than go by walk. You can visit many places with historical and beautiful houses or River Street (with nice pubs and restaurants in a places of former dock buildings)

As many times as I've been to Savannah I never get tired of exploring the historic area. It offers something for everyone! And since I'm a foodie there are tons of great little eateries to choose from!!!

Cool museum, you start on the level of the park and end up spiraling down to the waterfront. Everything is horribly crowded on St. Patrick's Day.

The city is beautiful and the restaurants are not typical Southern ( fried fried and more fried). Take a tour and enjoy the scenery! Lots of beautiful old b and b's in Historic District to stay at. Don't stay at a hotel. The bb's serve tea, wine , cookies, etc. and are personalized. Enjoy the Savannah charm.
