Part demure Southern belle, part New Orleans jazzman, Savannah is where graceful plantation homes, charming public squares and stately live oaks stand alongside lively blues venues and gothic cemeteries filled with ornate headstones and eccentric ghost hunters. In some ways dignified and in others playful, the city is uniformly beautiful and goes out of its way to embody Southern hospitality and charm. Hit the streets and squares of Savannah to discover what makes the city special, from lowcountry geography to Civil War history and a mosaic of residents past and present.
