And now for something completely different: Savannah.

Credited as being the first planned city in the United States, Georgia's sultry city of Savannah is positioned on a bluff above the Savannah River, a few miles upstream from the Atlantic Ocean state coastline. This Southern belle is full of charm, and her old-fashioned hospitality and small-town atmosphere invites visitors to stroll back in time, right to 1733 when the city was first founded by British General James Oglethorpe with the permission of native Yamacraw Indian chief Tomo-chi-chi.
With one of the country's largest preserved historical urban areas, one can't help but experience a sense of this city's colourful past, as you stroll past grandiose mansions and Spanish moss-covered oaks, sipping mint juleps. The city's legacy as a major player in the cotton industry is still evident in the Savannah Cotton Exchange, and the Pink House, dating back to 1789 and home to Georgia's first bank also bears testimony to the economic prosperity of the region. Apart from hundreds of architecturally significant buildings Savannah is also not lacking in restaurants, shops (particularly fine antique stores), Civil War forts, museums, galleries, quaint squares and lovely beaches, all earning it the nickname, 'the Hostess City of the South'.
Strategically positioned on the north of the Georgia coastline, Savannah serves as an excellent starting point for exploring the scenic barrier islands, resort towns and inlets found along the coast. Of course it is also imperative one try the region's world-famous shrimp that is caught and cooked in a variety of ways. 

  • River Street along the Savannah River is absolutely beautiful for a stroll.  So many shops and so many places to explore.  The old buildings have stunning architecture and there is a great selection of good restaurants with a wide variety of food from cheap to expensive.
  • Sit on the bench made famous by Forrest Gump in the movie.
  • Savannah's picturesque historic district brings the traditional Southern atmosphere to life. The area is full of small shops, historic homes, small park like squares and lovely churches.
  • Visit Forsyth Park, one portion of the original lands of the colonial Savannah gardens which were transformed into the Forsyth Park by the mid 1850s.
  • For the Historic minded, take a trip to the Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights museum. It documents the history of the Civil Rights Movement in savannah. Visit Old Fort Jackson, the state's oldest remaining fort includes a number of Civil War and other military exhibits.
