I love the history of Savannah and keep going back again and again. I walk the riverfront and City Market. Then I walk the squares in amazement at the history. I sit and enjoy the quiet and absorb the feelings of past wars and lives that have walked in the area. I am amazed at all the renovations to the... More

Spent three days here and enjoyed the whole time. Everybody is very cordial and friendly. Got a question? Ask anybody... They're glad to help. Mary at the visitors center on the riverfront is very helpful... You'll like her. Lots of history and charm. Beautiful old homes and buildings from the 1700- 1800's and so much to see and experience.

My family and I traveled down from Hilton Head to Savannah. I was excited to explore the city since I have heard from a couple of people it's such a lovely city. I think Savannah is a one day trip at most. The historic area is walkable which is nice and the area, architecture, restaurant, parks and shops are charming... More

Other than one building which was a radio/television station that put up an ugly antenna, everything about this district looks like it did before. Even the Kroger's has been designed to fit well into the neighborhood. It's worth taking a trolley tour to learn about all the neighborhood rather than just walk and not know what you're seeing.

The Historic District is a "must see" for all! Going back in time and viewing and reliving History is good for the soul!

The City is beautiful but there's much too many cars and its too noisy; more streets should be closed for cars like they did with the historic part of St-Augustine Florida; The architecture of the houses are beautiful but cars are parked in front so its hard too take nice pictures; you should add more signs that explain the history...

The historic city of Savanah is nicely preserved with the cobblestone of the inner harbor and the highest number of parks in an area that size. Make sure you stop by the cemetery and feel the people of the past! Take a ride on the horse guided tours to hear the history from a pro!

It's so nice visiting Savannah on foot....but I advise good sneakers ! You can have a walk along the river and also visit all the small squares... And don't forget to have your ice cream at Leopold's....... And also the famous place where the movie Forrest Gump was made ...." Chippewa Square " and you can see the bench in... More
