Savannah, Georgia is a charming Southern escape where art, period architecture, trendy boutiques and ghost stories are all set under a veil of Spanish moss. Savannah is a place where cuisine comes straight from the coast and cocktails are served at every meal.
Savannah is considered America's first planned city. After General James Oglethorpe arrived in 1733, he designed the city around a series of grids allowing for wide streets and public squares. Of Savannah’s 24 original squares, 22 squares still exist today and are ready for exploring and people-watching.
Thanks to the mild temperatures and the city’s southern orientation, Savannah’s weather is great year-round. While the rest of the country is shivering and shoveling snow, Savannah enjoys average winter highs in the 60s and 70s, and nighttime lows rarely drop below freezing. And while other Southern cities suffer from humidity, Savannah’s coastal breeze is refreshing during the summer.
