Owner description: Savannah's picturesque historic district brings the traditional southern atmosphere to life.
Reviewed March 27, 2014

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.

Taking a tour of the historic district gave me a real feel for the plantation south. Was amazed at the history here from both the civil and revolutionary wars. Beautiful homes and restored properties give this town character.

We loved the historic district and the great city squares with the parks and large trees, simply beautiful. Many types of restaurants and shops to try, you need at least a full day.

Savannah is the most beautiful city in the United States. I love the stately oaks dripping with Spanish moss, the wonderful flowered squares, the beautiful buildings full of such rich architectural details...just love the entire historic district which is just unbelievably beautiful.

If you like Mardi Gras then you will love Savannah for St. Patrick's Day. Days and days of festivals.
