As American cities go, Savannah is positively ancient. The British established it in 1733, but Georgia didn't become a U.S. state for 55 more years. This port city, nestled along the Savannah River, was a major player in both the American Revolution and American Civil War, and plenty of historic buildings date from those eras. And, while you might think that a visit is relegated to reliving the past, the truth couldn't be any more different.
To be honest, Savannah is a bit of a shape-shifter. Depending on who you are and how you like to experience a new destination, this grand dame will show you a different side. History and architecture buffs can roam the city's squares and parks to their heart's content to see and learn about the figures and buildings that made Savannah what it is today.
Active adventure-seekers will see its raw beauty on the Savannah Riverfront and nearby Tybee Island, which old-timers call Savannah Beach. Shoppers will stick to the boutiques that line River Street, Broughton Street and the open-air, 18th-century-era City Market. Foodies will be amazed at the variety of cuisines, and photographers will be captivated by majestic 100-year-old live oaks draped with Spanish moss.
While only a few small-ship coastal cruises call on Savannah, it's a fantastic place to visit, even if you don't arrive by ship.
The best part about Savannah is its authenticity. You get the sense that Savannah doesn't put on airs for anyone, and what you see is what you get: a Southern city that treats visitors just like its very own good ol' boys. Visit Savannah, and we guarantee you'll be smitten.
