    Great choice for a weekend getaway
    Savannah is definitely a walking town. I prefer the historic district. I’d park on Bull Street near Forsyth Park & walk down Bull St to Bay St area (& the river) then back up Abercorn St. to get a good feel of the architecture, shops, restaurants, etc..

    Terrific Trolley Tours
    We took the trolley tours several times. Our initial guide was a woman named Hannah and she was amazing! You learn so much history. They even have guest actors that board in period costumes and entertain you. You can use the trolleys for your transportation because you can get on ad off where ever you choose. I only wished they ran later than 4:30.

    Easy walking through history!
    Beautiful Savannah and its gardens and different period and style of architecture! We started with a Gray Line tour then returned on foot. So much to see but it's very pleasant walking square to square and enter homes of interest for tours along the way.

    Beautiful City with Small Town Charm
    If you are looking for Southern charm and fabulous architecture, look no further than downtown Savannah. We were impressed by the seamless blend of old and modern, ease of walkability as well as the level of cleanliness of the city at large. There were some homeless people around, but compared to other cities we've visited, Savannah seems to have a better handle on this concern.

    Savannah is the gem of the south
    Most beautiful city to visit in USA. Great architecture, history and people. Never a boring moment.if you are a history buff this is a great place to explore. Savannah has charm and grace that is part of the nature of the people who live there.

    Savannah is just wonderful!
    Historic Savannah is one of the cities that we always return to. The architecture is amazing. The restaurants very good. Such a walkable area! There are walking, biking, and trolley tours available. Have a great time. The heavy areas are riverside, but take a lot of time just to stroll and enjoy the homes, churches and restaurants.

    If you’re into history, this is your spot!
    Big tip… Old Town Trolley tours from market square, guided tour with multiple stops, on/off at will. The historic district is beautiful, well worth the whole trip. Lots of history and wonderful architecture. Moss covered trees, park areas, monuments, shops, and restaurants. But, be prepared, parking is terrible. Pay paying only, virtually, and not cheap.

    Some good, Some not so
    We spent a long weekend here as it has been on my bucket list for a while. American Airlines has a direct flight there from Philly and now Avelo is also added a direct flight from Wilmington making it easier to get to. Lots of history and plenty of shops, some tacky but some with great merchandise. Some great restaurants (45 Bistro is our fav) and some disappointing. We took the Old Savannah Tour trolley to get acclimated to the city and discovered the American Prohibition Museum. My wife is not a history buff nor does she like museums but had a great time here. Check out the Marriot Waterfront lobby...a hidden gem.

    Great time in Savannah
    Fabulous place to visit. Take the trolley tour. Visit River Street. Little Duck Diner is a nice place for lunch. Tybee Island is about 15 minutes from town. Climb the 178 stairs

    Beautiful city with lovely squares and historic houses.
    We have been to Savannah before but wanted to stay in the Historic district so we could walk the area. We took the hop on hop off trolley to see which historical homes to visit. Savannah is a beautiful city with great restaurants. We visit Hilton Head often but wanted to spend a few days just in Savannah.

What a fun city!! The historic area of Savannah is super cute! Well worth your time to wander around, have dinner, have a drink, or just enjoy it as is. You'll also get some great photos along the way.

What should be a trip to a lovely historic city unfortunately was significantly lessened by the smell of the paper plant on the northwest side of the city on the Savannah River. It was pervasive, even into our hotel and restaurants. The other fly in the ointment was the drinking culture there; for the most part the bars offer large drinks using cheap alcohol and there are signs of drunkenness everywhere in the evenings, both inside and out. If these two things don't bother you then architecture and the excellent documentation of the many historic sites should provide you with a good time. There are also many wonderful people here.

We enjoyed walking around and window shopping. Enjoyed the architecture and beautiful cypress trees. You can do a self guided tour. There are small restaurants along the way with delicious diverse foods.

The streets are very charming in parts ,the southern architecture is very lovely particularly the steam boat gothic style.The streets tend to be dirty with litter lining the gutters which is extremely disgusting it’s sad that such pretty streets have trash strewn around.And they also have many smokers.There are homeless people out there haggling you for money even when you say no and will follow you which is very unpleasant and is particularly uncomfortable and unsafe when you are a woman.Go somewhere better ,safer and prettier especially if you are a women even with a man ,this area has a ton of violent crime against women it is extremely dangerous for women to be here no where is safe in downtown.

Savannah Historic District is phenomenal, it’s everything I’ve read and seen about it! There is only so many places one person can eat, but every place I was dining at had fantastic dishes. The folks in charge of the tours and running the stores were friendly and hospitable, I can’t wait to go again!
