Emerging as a great city of the South in the 1800s, Savannah remains a historical treasure. A cobblestoned historic district is highlighted by popular community “squares” and manicured parks, magnificently shaded by magnolia blossoms and oak trees covered with Spanish moss. Horse-drawn carriages and ornate antebellum architecture add to the rich ambiance.
Separated from South Carolina by the Savannah River, the Savannah area is also a natural wonder, with Tybee Island and its beaches beckoning 30 minutes from downtown. Wide expanses of soft sand and mild waves abound, as do blooming azaleas.
Savannah also offers the modern charm of ample culture, trendy restaurants, boutique shopping, family fun and vibrant nightlife. It’s historic and hip, robust and refined – all at the same time. Those are just some of the reasons Savannah has grown from a regionally beloved coastal city into one of America’s most popular travel and vacation destinations.
