Savannah the Beautiful

Recommended Posts


Like I said a million times before, Savannah NEVER fails to impress. Like Charleston, Savannah sets high standards in how to maintain the good old Southern, urban and historic fabric of a city. I don't think there is a single person who cannot see the beauty of Savannah and admire it. Personally, I am always amazed. Of course, it always helps when the photographer is talented and has an eye for detail ;)

Great pics, man! Wifey and I will be spending the night in Savannah tomorrow at the Westin, so I'm hoping to snap some shots similar to these! The trip is just a short stop over on the way to her parents in rural GA. It's such a charming city and I'm excited to go back -- it's been a while, but I've had some good times there over the years. We won't have much time, but we're going to try and find the house my grandfather was born in (somewhere on W. Duffy St.) and do one or two other activities (I hope they will include hitting a pub and visiting a church I've always wanted to check out :P ) If you have non-touristy local-ish suggestions LMK! :)

We visted last week and were impressed with the downtown areas -- not just the Riverfront. There's some neat stuff going on.

PS - Sparky's chicken fingers are a insane good.

Those pictures are amazing!!!!!!!!! Hands down Savannah has the next best skyline in Ga outside of Atlanta....but honestly Savannah is in a different league.

Once again, these are great pics. Thanks for posting them. It's always good to see more pictures of such a beautiful city.

The one from the river (4th to last) and that "Sorry Charlie's" one are prbably my favorites.

Great pics. But It's kind of sad that Savannah has more pedestrians walking around than Atlanta!

Well its 100 times more pedestrian friendly.

I hope Atlanta catches up.

I could have sworn I just left a comment on this....

Great shots! Savannah has some of the best streetscapes and density shots Georgia hs to offer. Thanks for posting them. My favorites were those first two shots. I love that wide angle(?) first one and that shot of Savannah from above (the second one).

Thanks, it's a shame I'm the only one who represents Savannah in ALL of the Forum web sites I go to. This is URBANplanet..... Savannah is he most urban city in Ga (IMO) & doesn't have it's own subforum.... the lack of interest in Savannah is mind boggling to me. :wacko:

I LOVE Savannah! I don't know if it's the most urban (depends on how you define urban), but it's definitely the most walkable city in Georgia. Gen. Oglethorpe sure got it right, in my opinion.

I graduated from SCAD in May (lived in Savannah for 4 years - year round) and moved to Atlanta. I miss Savannah every day. It has its problems but it will probably always be my favorite city.

So you're not the only one representing Savannah. I think the rest of the country's cities can learn alot from it. I just wish that my industry (commerical interior design) had a presence there so I didn't have to leave!

Youre right. Savannah is highly underrepresented. I don't understand why there is not more interest in it. But its hard to justify a forum for a place that gets so little direct attention. It is frequently brought up in other threads though. If you have any ideas on how to bring some life to Savannah on this forum, I'd be open to suggestions.

This is an excellent thread though. Fantastic Pictures.

I can't stand this garage:

Its truely the sore thumb of Savannah. I cant even begin to comprehend how that was allowed to be consturcted.
