“Wander your way through history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

My husband and I visited the historic for a 3 day weekend trip. We walked the district every day and always found new treasures to take in. The squares, the houses, Colonial Cemetery, the cathedral... it's a history buff's dream. Even if history isn't your thing, the all-encompassing beauty would not be lost on you. Must sees in the historic district: Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Colonial Park Cemetery, Owens Thomas house (if you can only tour one house, this is said to be the one), Green-Meldrim house (Sherman's headquarters), 432 Abercorn (if you enjoy the paranormal, this one is a doozy. Read up before you go if you are not attending a tour.) If you are able to walk, do so. It is great exercise and you will learn so much more than sitting on a noisy trolley.

Savannah is just amazing. I fell in love and have decided that when I win the lottery, I will buy one of Savannah's mansions and move right in!!

Stayed on right on the river and it was wonderful people watching as well as watching the boat traffic. It is one happening place and can't wait to go back.
