Historic Savannah survived the burning of the south by General Sherman after the civil war. It has been preserved in a way that almost makes it feel like you are visiting a foreign city. Take a stroll through the 22 different squares and see a unique environment that you won't find anywhere else.

The area is over rated. It could barely qualify as "historic" as there is a pretty good mix of pseudohistoric and just plain trashy. The hotels and their parking rates in the the so called "historic" district are totally not worth their cash (or point!) rates. Even hotels that are further away and in more unfortunate areas are overrated in... More

We took the trolley ... a two hour open air bus tour that was very informative and fun, with the driver's jokes. He knew a lot about the history and things I had no idea about this historic town

So beautiful, very special. We like to characterize Savannah as all of the magic and charm of New Orleans without the danger. The trees, the garden squares, the experience is unforgettable. Wonderful architecture, but the highlight is just the peace and calmness. For all of the charm of Charleston, Savannah is better at transporting you into the past and the... More

There's not much to see except for old buildings. That would be cool if they were nice restored and clean but the environment is really dirty. It smells like urine in several parts. And there's some homeless threatening people that makes this part of Savannah a little dangerous.

We only had a short time in Savannah so we took the on and off bus tour of the historical district and it was fun and informative. I would like to go back and tour some of the homes.

We spent the evening in Savannah with our two teenagers. We started with dinner along River Street. Take a beverage with you to go because it gets hot and humid in the summer months. Bay Street has free parking after 5pm on weekdays so that's where we left our car. We walked along River Street then headed up Bull to... More
