Map of Savannah, Georgia
The Hostess City of the South
Founded in 1733 by General James Oglethorpe, this port
city was once presented to President Lincoln as a Christmas present
Sherman. Savannah, Georgia has since become an eclectic blend of colonial
history and modern day culture.
With our map in hand let us guide you through history:
start at the Savannah Visitor Information Center, stop downstairs at
History Museum, next door to the restored 1860's Central of Georgia railroad
station, then on to the original 21 squares, John Wesley's statue, the
First African Baptist Church, the home of Juliette Gordon Low (founder
of Girl Scouts), the Waving Girl, the mighty Eighth Air Force Heritage
Museum, to the Savannah, Georgia of today.
In the historic district you will explore City Market, tour
River Street and Bay Street, marvel at the beauty of Savannah's 21 squares,
admire the period architecture of the stately historic homes and buildings,
imagine the auctioneer at the old Cotton Exchange, be awed by the many
old churches, see history in the beautiful cemeteries, dine at the finest
restaurants and cafes, browse the many shops and galleries, and stay at
fine hotels or one of the many historic B & Bs.
Follow the path of "Midnight in the Garden of Good
and Evil" to the Mercer House, Bonaventure Cemetery, or maybe see
Lady Chablis perform. Relive Civil War history at Fort Pulaski and Fort
Jackson. Watch super tankers steam up the Savannah River from a table
at a River Street restaurant. Plan your trip to be a part of Savannah's
giant St. Patrick's Day celebration (one of the largest in the nation).
Ride by horse and carriage through the Historic District, or take a guided
trolley tour. take a spring home tour and enjoy the beautiful azaleas
of spring, listen to performers in the
Johnny Mercer Theater or Savannah Civic Center, watch live presentations
at one of our theaters or an outdoor Shakespearean play in Forsyth Park.
For the sports minded there is endless golf, boating, fishing, and the
Savannah Sand Gnats professional baseball at Grayson Stadium.
Don't forget to visit the beaches and lighthouse at Tybee
Island, play a round of golf on Wilmington or Hutchinson Island (site
of the new Savannah International Trade and Convention Center), or catch
a movie, shop the malls, and discover the fine restaurants of midtown
