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!

Savannah is a beautiful city with the additional perk of being one of the oldest in the country. Savannah’s downtown area has a small city feel with theatres, shops, restaurants, pubs, and nightclubs busy with patrons from area universities, military bases, locals and tourists from all over the world. The city invites visitors to enjoy the history, natural beauty and usually pleasant weather with southern hospitality and charm. In addition to the museums and other historical sites, families and couples visit Savannah to take advantage of it’s outdoor recreation and close proximity to Tybee Island. Visitors of Savannah are given the opportunity to enjoy a unique contemporary experience while being transformed by the beauty of its deep rooted history and timeless essence.
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!
