If you stroll down Bull Street, you come across five lovely and historic squares. Take a rest and sit in the shade. Read the plaques and learn Savanah history. Just enjoy your day.

A gorgeous park that makes you feel like you are in Savannah. Spanish moss, lush green plants, brick sidewalks, monument and park benches - all perfect.

This square was great to visit this February with colorful flowering trees. Some of the blooms were fantastic smelling. One of the better squares in the city.
