Savannah: Historic City with Modern Appeal
Savannah is a vibrant coastal city that bursts at the seams with personality. At once graceful and quirky, historic and fresh, traditional yet creative, Savannah embraces new directions (and newcomers) while artfully preserving its past. As the Hostess City of the South, Savannah entertains from downtown's lively riverfront to the shores of Tybee Island beach with imaginative cuisine, bountiful cocktails, and charismatic hospitality.
Rivers thread through Savannah's coastline, creating breathtaking island communities with unique attributes. The best known is "Savannah's Beach," Tybee Island; although the easternmost point of Savannah, it is still only 20 minutes from downtown. Skidaway Island, Whitemarsh Island, Wilmington Island, and Isle of Hope all offer tranquil yet convenient residential living close to downtown.
Downtown Savannah's streets are captivating. Founded in 1733 by James Edward Oglethorpe, the Historic Landmark District retains his original city plan with 22 repeating squares - the perfect pockets of green for a picnic or picture. The famed 30-acre Forsyth Park is the ultimate gathering place, hosting everything from weekly farmer's markets to annual concerts and events. Around the southwest corner of Forsyth Park, the Victorian District is a whimsical 50-block neighborhood showcasing architecture from the late 1800s to early 1900s.
From the elegant tree-lined streets of Ardsley Park to the historic shrimper cottages of Tybee Island, Savannah has a community suited to each taste. Those seeking a gated waterfront lifestyle may head southeast to Dutch Island's 500-home enclave along the Herb River. Golfing enthusiasts might insist on The Landings for its six courses.
