Savannah Reviews

Great food and shopping available in beautiful historic scenic downtown Savannah! The city has so much to offer with tours on the development, founders of Savannah, the pirating, slavery roots and the ghosts. Events and tours suitable for all ages! This is one of the most haunted cities in America! Microbrewery's are popping up in the area and the nightlife and entertainment is outstanding. Certain areas in Savannah have better school options than others and Real Estate is booming again. Overall, Savannah is a great city to live in or nearby!
Review Savannah
I love Savannah because there's so much culture to explore and so much history to learn. Also, there is always fun things to do, doesn't matter if you're in downtown Savannah or on the South side of Savannah. I love the different activities that go on in the community, like marathons, dog walks, fresh markets etc. Lastly, I love the holiday celebrations. For example, St. Patrick's Day is my favorite holiday in Savannah because everyone comes out and has a great time by watching the parade and getting involved in the festivities in downtown Savannah. I believe that Savannah is perfect the way it is. I love everything about the city!
I am a frequent visitor of Savannah and I absolutely adore the place! If you want a taste of something different you should defiantly go there. While many things are expensive, it is well worth it. From the water to the food and animals nearly everything is perfect in its own way. The traffic can be pretty slow on your way up there but get ready to walk on those historic grounds when you arrive. This town is so beautiful that Sherman left it alone on his march to the sea. That should make you want to go and check it out!
