There is a great Art college called Savannah College of Art and design that is the center of the city. The arts and culture are incredible. The city is Historic with a rich history. The architecture stands out unlike any other city. There is a Romance in the air in Savannah.

Great culinary experiences and wonderful history tours make this a great destination.

I took a bus tour of Savannah. It was such a beautiful place with the sweeping trees and the water nearby. Such a fun experience.

The trees and the water. Just completely beautiful place.

Savannah is a magical, quaint, and charming southern city. I fell in love with the amazing food, green spaces, art, and friendly hospitality of the locals. Prices are fair (or even inexpensive) compared to other comparable cities in the US. I will certainly return.

Don't miss these amazing Savannah Experiences! 1. Go for a jog in Forsyth Park 2. Eat lunch at Mrs. Wilkes' Dining Room 3. Visit SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design) 4. Admire the architecture on Jones Street 5. Hop over to Tybee Island for a swim

I love Savannah. There's so much to do there like all of the super fun tours. I really enjoyed going on a haunted pub crawl.

The food everywhere was amazing. I really loved Paula Deen's Sunday brunch at her restaurant The Lady and Sons

I visited Savannah recently for a family member's wedding and absolutely adored the area.

The city was both historic while having a busy downtown area and quiet back roads. I felt like I had gone back in time when walking around the city streets.

I absolutely love visiting Savannah. Even though it is somewhat large it has a small town feel. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. The town is very historical with beautiful architecture and buildings. It is so much fun to walk along the river and go into all the little shops. While in Savannah we are always sure to get some delicious seafood. One of the coolest things we did was go on a haunted ghost tour. The Savannah College of Art and Design is also a very good school with some unique and great opportunities for students.

The thing that stands out the most about Savannah is the culture. Everywhere you look you see musicians or artists on the streets. Entertainment is everywhere and it is all beautiful.

I visited Savannah once back in 2006. I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere of it. There are beautiful neighborhoods with old Victorian houses. The beauty of it all simply swept me away. I enjoyed walking along the river shopping at the various shops and dining at the restaurants. I was only able to stay for a day, but that was long enough to land it on one of my top cities to visit again one day.

There is a place where you can go and sit on the same bench that Forest Gump sat in. The actual same bench from the movie. That was a pretty neat thing to be able to do.
