Savannah is a small, vibrant colonial city on Georgia’s Atlantic Coast, near the South Carolina border. Founded in 1733 and blessed with an extremely well-preserved historic district, the city is a must-visit for its rich American history. If you’re planning a visit, this comprehensive guide is all you need.
Thanks to its liberal culture and ample student population (from schools such as Savannah State University and Savannah College of Art and Design), Savannah is also a great place to relax. And, for a touristy town, Savannah is surprisingly affordable. If you’re visiting from bigger cities such as San Francisco or New York, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices of food, beverage, attraction admission, and lodging, especially outside the historic district.
