I just got back from a mini-vacation to the Southeast and managed to squeeze in a little time in one of my favorite cities, Savannah, GA. I have been to Savannah once before and I just knew I was going to love the city and she did not disappoint.
We took our children this time around and they also had a great time. I consider Savannah a very beautiful and elegant lady. The city is built around 22 town squares so every few blocks you walk, you will find yourself in a lush, green square that offers magnolia trees and giant oak trees covered in Spanish moss that canopy the city. You will also find Civil War history, a fun and vibrant downtown area, and a thriving college dedicated to preserving the architecture of the city. When General Sherman’s troops marched through Georgia, it is said that he found the city of Savannah so lovely that he could not burn it to the ground. In fact, he offered the city as a Christmas present to Abraham Lincoln in 1864.
The one word that pops in my head over and over again when I visit Savannah is charm. She is one charming lady- here are some of our favorites from the trip. Note we were only able to squeeze in 24 hours in Savannah, if you have more time there is an endless list of things to do.
