Located on the north end of Georgia’s coast, Savannah is a historic riverside city and Southern cultural hub with vacation rentals scattered throughout, amidst majestic live oaks draped in Spanish moss.
Named one of the “Top Ten Destinations in America” and one of “America’s Prettiest Towns” by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler and Forbes, respectively, there is no denying Savannah’s natural beauty and unique identity. With period architecture, cobblestone streets, and landscaped squares, the birthplace of Georgia—known as “The Mother City of Georgia” and “Georgia’s First City” by locals—imbues history and charm. Savannah boasts the nation’s largest registered urban historic landmark district, with more than 1,600 architecturally and historically significant structures.
The city features a number of restaurants serving Southern classics, such as shrimp and grits, in addition to antique shops, art galleries, and the Hampton Lillibridge House, one of the most haunted houses in the country. Savannah also hosts over 150 festivals a year, including an enormous St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
In addition to all this, Savannah also offers recreational activities in and around the city. Forsyth Park, in the heart of the city, has basketball and tennis courts, and areas in which to play soccer and Frisbee. At the neighbouring Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, hiking, bicycling, fishing, and hunting are popular, as are bird watching and wildlife viewing. Over 19 golf courses provide opportunities for golfing enthusiasts.
Savannah offers an array of natural, cultural, and outdoors attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is easily accessible from the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport.+ More
