I LOVE Savannah! Here there are countless restaurants and educational institutions and you can't forget the beauty of the city itself. The city is vibrant and the people and extremely nice. Another great thing is that there is public transportation is everywhere. Savannah is also home to the BEAUTIFUL Armstrong University Campus now Georgia Southern. Classes are usually located in the same complex depending on your major and there are countless spots for residency on campus.

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.
