Savanna is a great small town along the Mississippi River, it is a old town that is establishing new businesses and hopefully will become a destination point for campers and travelers. The people in this small town are welcoming and the views are wonderful.

Savanna is a small town, but it is bigger than surrounding towns, so there are conveniences like a grocery store, gas stations, and other shops. It is friendly for the most part, but there are also a lot of drugs and bars in this town unfortunately. My neighborhood is one of the few good ones.
The local businesses in my area are fairly scarce. Only a few bars and restaurants survive in my town and the rest of the businesses fall broke within their first few years of being in service. So many people come in and open up their new businesses hoping to make a stand and change my town; its just next to impossible for them to stay, unless they make a major statement. There is only one true grocery store in my town, which prices are very biased and seemingly run by a family that owns almost everything else. There is only one hotel, one sort of clothing store, one hardware store, and a few struggling family owned restaurants just trying to hold on.
