Step back in time with a visit to the dazzling city of Savannah, GA and discover why its laid back charm, tree-lined squares, and unique architecture have garnered it the nickname “Hostess City of the South.”
Head from your Savannah hotel to a downtown almost completely designated a National Historic Landmark District, the pleasure of wandering on foot in Savannah can’t be missed. The Savannah Historic District and nearby Victorian Historic District are home to uniquely preserved houses, retail spaces, and civic buildings, as well as 22 park-like squares, often lined with rustling oak trees. Set aside a day or two to explore the monuments of Forsyth Park; the lavish resting places of Bonaventure Cemetery; and the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, the oldest Catholic church in Georgia. Or, entertain the kids with a stop at the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts.
For excursions further afield, Fort Jackson provides a glimpse of Civil War history, and picturesque views abound at the Savannah Riverfront and coastal islands. Raise your heart rate with a climb up the winding stairs of the Tybee Island Light Station, the first lighthouse on the Southern Atlantic Coast. As the sun sets, revel in the romantic dining options at the Olde Pink House, followed by a memorable show at the Historic Savannah Theatre. When the red curtain falls, scout for the perfect souvenir at the energy-efficient Abercorn Common or Oglethorpe Mall.
