A classy town

Recommended Posts

Web finds of my hometown, Savannah.

Savannah is a city rich in history, Southern charm and old-fashioned hospitality. Savannah traces its roots back to 1733, when British General James Oglethorpe first founded the city on a bluff above River Street. Today, Savannah offers world-class restaurants, Civil War forts, dozens of art galleries, fine antique shops, and much more. Savannah has one of the largest historic districts in the United States, with thousands of architecturally-significant buildings nestled under giant live oaks hung with Spanish moss. Known as The Hostess City of South, Savannah attracts visitors from across the country and around the world. As described in Mary L. Morrison's book Historic Savannah, "no City anywhere resembles the two square miles of old Savannah, with its wonderful town plan of 22 small parks, its river front warehouses once devoted to the cotton trade, and its rows of dignified dwellings shaded by tall oak trees." World renowned for its timeless charm and historic preservation, Savannah's historic district offers its visitors and residents a walk back in time. The elegance of Savannah immediately overwhelms the senses. The historical elements of this charming coastal community weave an undeniable web of intrigue that seduces many into the heart of this southern city. It is no wonder that in the early 1990's the French newspaper LeMonde named Savannah "the most beautiful city in North America."

An east coast road trip is certainly on my list of things to do soon. I really want to see Savannah, Charleston, Wilmington, the Hampton Roads...

Great shots!
