Savannah Article



The Historic District of Savannah can be many things to many people, but to all who come here it is the ultimate experience in hospitality, charm, excitement, as well as soothing tranquility. It won't come as much of a surprise to learn that Savannah was known as the hostess city of the South. This is one place you come and immediately feel at home. No wonder it is rated as one of the top ten destinations in the USA for tourists.

A good way to get started would be to hop on an Old Town Trolley Tour that gives you an idea of what looks good. This will take you through the City Market, the beautiful fountains of Forsyth Park where you almost hope to see young Forrest Gump seated on a bench, the Mercer House, and the spooky Colonial Park Cemetery. The famous River Street merits further exploration and you may want to do it on your own. Experience the quaint and the artistic in the restored buildings that line this beautiful street. You have your choice of art galleries, cafes, shopping and anything else you may discover on your own. Photo-ops galore await you at the Lion Fountain by the Cotton Exchange.

For the art lovers Savannah is an open treasure trove overflowing with a wealth of magnificence. The Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences houses an immense 18th and 19th century art collection from around the world. If you are traveling with kids give them a taste of art at the Jepson Center for the Arts, where you have African American and Southern Art, along with a whole lot of fun stuff for kids.

Kids will also love the "Trolley of the Doomed." This is an evening tour meant to thrill you with scares. You will hear tales of ghosts and monsters, as well as murders most foul and things that go bump in the night. Feel your blood run cold at the authenticity that gives you goose bumps. If you feel you're up to it, there's more in this category with A Walk through Midnight Tour of Savannah, Sorrel-Weed House- Candlelight Walking Tour, and Savannah Ghosts Tour.

In the light of day you can engage in more pleasant strolls and walking tours that reveal the architectural splendor of historic sites and the luxuriant beauty of the many parks and gardens. Admire the English Regency architectural style of the Owens-Thomas House that no Savannah tourist can resist.

Three miles from downtown Savannah you'll see Old Fort Jackson. Exult in the feel of an era where cannons and muskets were as common as barbeque grills are today. Fifteen miles east of Savannah on Tybee Island you have Fort Pulaski where once again history beckons with fascinating facts. While mulling over these on the ramparts of the fort, let your eyes feast on the panoramic views of the Atlantic and the timeless tranquility of the salt marshes.


Be sure to explore the “Cultural” option on the Savannah Tourist Guide to discover all of the great cultural sites, exhibits and activities. The Savannah History Museum will have you spend a considerable amount of time in its enchanting interiors. A display of 19th and 20th century ladies' outfits will leave you amazed at the flamboyance and elaborate detail that went into everyday clothing in those days. Located nearby is the Roundhouse Railroad Museum that holds enough to inform and interest all ages. Another must-see would have to be the fabulous Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum that houses miniature models of ships, antiques and lifelike paintings that will surprise you with its authentic quality. The Museum itself is a sight to behold and provides an elegant ambience that serves to enhance the exhibition.
