Iconic tree-lined squares, cobblestone streets, and historic architecture make Savannah one of the top vacation destinations in Georgia. This breathtakingly beautiful and walkable coastal city is most famous for its lovely trees, outdoor cafes, and stately Southern homes, but there are many surprises in store in Savannah as well, like its hip food and drink scene and trendy boutiques.
When you stay in one of our Savannah vacation rentals, make sure to bring your walking shoes because this beautiful city is best experienced on foot. Head straight for the city's charming Historic District, where cobblestones, parks, museums and 18th and 19th-century homes paint a majestic scene. Also be sure to take in the vibrant River Street district along the Savannah River, where you'll find restaurants, shops and galleries galore. While you're there, you might want to take in an evening riverboat cruise that will transport you back in time! This beautiful city is known for its history so, for a rather unique experience, consider taking one of Savannah's many ghost tours.
