Southern Hospitality

Consistently named one of the “world’s friendliest cities,” Savannah, Georgia, is a charming escape where art, period architecture, trendy boutiques, and haunted stories are all set under a veil of Spanish moss. The historic district showcases well-preserved landmarks like Forsyth Park, the Mercer-Williams House, and the Davenport House Museum. Along River Street, the waterfront buzzes with activity, boasting shops, restaurants, and stunning views of the Savannah River. Savannah’s thriving arts and culture scene, anchored by the Telfair Museums and the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), adds depth to the experience. With its picturesque squares and captivating atmosphere, Savannah promises an unforgettable journey into the heart of the South.
