“A Microcosm of Savannah Life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

So many things go on there. Music, picnics, games, a Farmer's Market, History, the Fountain, The lovely homes which surround it. Or you can just go and people watch!

“Another one of Savannahs great squares”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

There are 23 squares remaining in Savannah and it seems like we visited most of them during our trip. This is another great one and is an example of the planning that went into this beautiful southern city.

“Savanha is a city of squares”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

If you come to Savanha,, you must walk-or-at least take a horse drawn carriage through the city. Down near the river is like any city's waterfront river walk--but walking from square to square is truly unique to Savanha--also-each square has two things--shade from the heat and a piece of local and often national historical importance.
