Beautiful area

We were on a hop-on, hop-off tour so were able to see the area from the tour trolley and get off and walk on the streets anytime. Lovely area.

Very charming and unique. Lots of character. Parts of it (Bay street) are too touristy with t shirt and candy shops galore.

This is one of the most unique places i've walked in the USA. Houses from the 1700's, mixed with new houses, great shops and cafes, and ofcourse the green squares. A must for every photographer and/or history buff.

When in Savannah you must travel through the Historic District. We did three types of tours and can highly recommend all three ways. Old Savannah Tours and Old Savannah Ghost Tour and Carriage Tours of Savannah were EXCELLENT. There was some minimal overlapping information but it allowed our family to quiz each other for fun.

Very walkable, we bought trolley tickets but have found walking and pausing my ch more enjoyable. Lots of plaques to read to keep you informed. And best of all the he area is flat. Love the charm and history!

Spectacular history, stories, visuals, architecture, and photo opps if that is your thing. Wonderful SCAD alumni galleries and plenty of local artists whose works are available. I would note that Savannah is a bit of a foodie town and also offer a variety of nice hotels from which you can walk the entire Historic District if inclined without issue.

A great place to walk and enjoy history. The buildings are wonderful. Walking around all the squares reminds you of a simpler time. Great place to be with someone special.
