Savannah is Georgia’s oldest city being first established in 1733 and today is the county seat of Chatham County. Throughout American history Savannah has been a vital port city along the Savannah River, and it still remains a thriving economic metropolis for the entire state of Georgia and the southeastern region of the United States.
Savannah’s Historic District and thriving downtown areas allure millions of tourists every year to visit the hospitable charm the city emits, which goes to show how Savannah has been nicknamed The Hostess City.
Today the city of Savannah continues to share a unique blend of history and modern American culture to the entire world through an extraordinary mixture of arts and entertainment, historic monument tours, seasonal festivals, nature adventures and a thriving local economy. Being just 20 miles upstream from the Atlantic Ocean has made Savannah one of the most desirable places to live in the entire state of Georgia.

When it comes to a city like Savannah, there really are endless possibilities to be had, but many of the very best activities to do in Savannah are outside in the great southern climate the city is situated within.
One of the main bucket list places to go to while in Savannah has to be Forsyth Park, which is a large, 30-acre park in the middle of the Historic District that offers breathtaking views of majestic fountains and trees covered with Spanish moss.
History Tours are also one of the most popular activities in Savannah because there really is an incredible amount of sightseeing opportunities that allow everyone on these tours to dive deeper into Savannah’s rich history. Whether it’s a walking tour or a tour bus there are plenty of options for the whole family.
Another great aspect of Savannah’s Historic District is the City Market, which is an outdoor mall that offers incredible restaurants, art galleries, shopping opportunities and live music on a daily basis. This is a great spot to go to after a long day of sightseeing in the Historic District.
Out of all the historic monuments in Savannah, and there really are a lot, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is one of the most incredible. It was originally built in 1799 and was reconstructed in the late 19th century for an expansion, but as you can imagine this cathedral is the heart of Savannah architecture and is one of the city’s bucket list places to experience.
Very similar to the City Market, River Street is a great opportunity for everyone to enjoy historic cobblestone streets while meandering around from galleries, restaurants, souvenir shops and pubs. It is also considered one of the best areas for Savannah’s exciting nightlife scene!
Savannah is a thriving city for art and entertainment, and for those looking into catching up with their artistic side the Telfair Museum of Art is the place to go. When it comes to music Savannah is one of the best cities in the south, and with large yearly events like the Savannah Music Festival and great organizations including The Savannah Philharmonic, The Savannah Orchestra and The Savannah Theatre, there is a fun performance for the whole family to experience year-round in Savannah.
For those of you who want to escape the crowds and bustling tourist scene in Savannah there is the incredible option of Tybee Island, which is just about a half hour away from the Historic District and offers a very relaxing and beautiful beach experience with very warm water in the summer months.
