Welcome to Savannah
The Hostess City of the South welcomes you to the glorious Spring. This is truly the best time to visit this colonial city of Georgia. Do it soon before the hot, hazy, and humid days of Summer arrive. You will want to take a leisurely stroll through the city’s 22 historical squares.
Each of these squares offer a glimpse back in time of how this colonial city has grown over the centuries. Check out savannah.com to learn more about the each of the squares.
Some Things to Do
As the oldest city in Georgia, this city shines with history and colonial charm. I recommend starting your visit in the Historic District taking a leisurely stroll along Bull street, which you can walk all the way to the State Capital Building near the river. This city shares some wonderful distinctions as the first capital of Georgia, a old British colony with this history running deep, and holds one (if not the largest) St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the South….. just to name a few….
Check out Viator for some addition tour options.
You can explore several historical homes during a stay in Savannah including the Owen-Thomas Home, Andrew Low House, Juilette Low’s Birthplace, and of course, the Mercer-Williams House-famous for the “Midnight in the Garden in Good and Evil” –the Savannah Bed and Breakfast was originally owned by Jim Williams.
Explore River Street and Bay and the City Market
Explore the Victorian District,
Laurel Grove Cemetery, and Bonaventure (our favorite)–both require some planning as these are outside the Historic District
Where to Stay (some options)
We stayed at the Mansion at Forsyth Park
I must confess that we used Marriott points for our stay at this well appointed Autograph Collection by Marriott across Forsyth Park. We enjoyed our one night here and the room is quite, service superior, and welcoming staff. We did not try the food or drinks here, though.
and the Savannah Bed and Breakfast
We truly enjoyed our stay here as this historical inn sits on Gordon Row. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea on the back patio while your individually prepared breakfast is being made. The owner Mary is a wonderful hostess and has made this B & B a relaxing, historical, and easy going home away from home.
