My wife and I had been to Savannah several years ago and found the trip less than a great experience because of the B & B we stayed in and the lack of quality restaurants. This trip was entirely different! The B & B was great this time and so were the restaurants. The visitors center was a great addition to the city and it tourism effort. We began there on arrival and the lady there could not have been more pleasant and informative. I would give five stars to Savannah as a destination for history and eateries! I will review the B& B and our historic adventures as well as restaurants under separate headings! We stayed at the Green Palms B & B, ate at Crystal Beer Parlor, Lady & Sons and Alligator Soul! We toured Andrew Low House,St John the Baptist Cathedral, Davenport House, Owen Thomas House, Juliette Gordon Low House, Colonial Park Cemetery, Harper Fowlkes House, City Market, most of the Squares, Forsythe Park, and ventured out to Old Fort Jackson, Tybee Island (lighthouse), Fort Pulaski, Cockspur Island Lighthouse, Savannah Harbor Light in Emmet Park, and several shops such as Salt Table and Meinhardt's plus walked Broughton St. and other shopping streets to look at shops and galleries including the river front shops and restaurant area. Please check out my reviews on B& B, restaurants and attractions under those headings! Highly recommend Savannah!

My new favorite US City! So much to do here. Great food, beautiful atmosphere, so much history and the old home tours are incredible.

Take a trolley tour of the Historic District first to understand the history and the layout of the city. Savannah's architecture and the 22 squares are like nothing you've seen in any U.S. city. It is one of the best walking cities. You must take your time and stroll up and down the streets of historic Savannah - visiting each square as you go.

The historic district of Savannah is really worth visiting. There are a large number of small parks sited strategically around the district with various monuments lovely shade trees and seating arrangements. The streets connecting the parks are commonly lined with wonderful old trees providing great streets capes which are a real pleasure to walk around. The buildings are typically low rise many are very quaint and well maintained or renovated.

Definitely worth spending a few says visiting and exploring.
