This is a must go to city. We stopped in on our way to Florida and I am very glad we did. The historic district is a pleasant place to stroll and shop. There are carriage rides and the flowers, trees ans Spanish moss give the city an ethereal quality. There are wonderful and unique shops and a few cafes on the main street.
I suggest you head toward the waterfront - cobble stone steps lead down to a fabulous area of stores and restaurants. Parking can be a problem - so be patient or be prepared to park and walk.
There are scenic boat rides and you can stroll the streets with a beverage in hand.
We chose to eat at a popular restaurant on River Street - -that was packed with tourists- it was called The Cotton Exchange and will be the subject of a review - It was far too expensive the view from the ground floor was not good, the restrooms were filthy and the food was greasy, undercooked and cold. We should have kept looking for a better place. Next time.
At night the streets hold even more charm and comes alive. I plan to return and to schedule a much longer stay, Savannah has won a place in my heart.
