Savannah is a beautiful coastal city located on the eastern coast. There are a lot of things to do in the Savannah area. Everything from boating to sightseeing, etc. is offered in this area. The climate is very mild most of the year and there is a little cold weather to deal with. There are great colleges and universities here as well.Some examples are, Georgia Southern university, Savannah State University, Savannah College of Art and design, just to name a few. We also have a lot of movies that are made here as well. It is a sightseeing destination/hotspot.It is just a beautiful place to live!

Savannah has a lot of great options for very different types of people. Whether you are a college student looking for fun, family looking for peaceful outing, or a couple looking for a romantic date; you will find something in Savannah! I love coming here with friends or family. There is plenty of shopping, dining, accommodations, night-life adventures, tourist activities, etc. Some of my favorite places to eat are Funky Brunch Cafe, Tequila's Town, and Garibaldi's.
I LOVE Savannah! It is a great place for singles and families. Whether you live there or are visiting there is always something happening. Tours for any age and any interest, historical or supernatural. Fun for everyone! The food is phenomenal! Make sure you visit Spanky's on River Street and try their chicken tenders! If you like frozen drinks then you need to try Wet Willie's! Get their Call-A-Cab, you will love it and may need that cab!
