Travel Guide: Savannah


Summary

Savannah is an incredible city in the Southern US with a lot of charm and things to do. Their restaurant and bar scene is so good that you'll see a lot of Bachelor/Bachelorette parties around (not always a good thing). But the real charm comes from the look of the city: scenic squares and parks, big Oak trees covered in Spanish Moss, notable historic buildings and cobblestone streets—including Jones Street, the prettiest street in America. Savannah feels like a city from another age. There are also a lot of rooftop patios :)
