I love being in the heart of downtown Savannah! There is always something going on so it is easy to find something to do. I love to eat, so there are so many amazing places to eat at that I adore. Shopping is also nice, there are so many local shops that I go to all the time. Some of my favorites are the local owned used bookstores. I could spend hours in there looking through all the used books. It makes my heart happy knowing there are so many to choose from! Another thing I love is being so close to the beach! I love being able to drive 20 minutes and be at the beach. There are so many amazing things about this town that I love, I could go on forever. This town is a town everyone should visit at least once and get some ice-cream from Leopold's while they are here too!

I am from Upstate NY. I moved down here 3 years ago. I love Savannah because of how diverse it is, history, and entertainment. Downtown Savannah is full of civil war history. There are events/gatherings/festivals every weekend throughout Savannah. Always something to do!
Savannah is a beautiful city with much history. There are very many historical sights and nice people. There is no shortage of Southern Hospitality. Selfishness in Savannah is almost nonexistent, neighbors and strangers are quick to help each other in way possible. There are many healthy restaurants if that is what you are looking for. Savannah is my favorite city I have been to!
