Historic Savannah:
The Hostess City of Georgia

Savannah Forsyth Park Fountain

Golden Isles, GA: Sultry summers, oaks dripping with Spanish Moss, real live southern belles and grand antebellum manors presiding over it all—if you’re not familiar with the South, and what they call the Lowcounty in particular, it might as well be another country entirely. That’s part of the thrill of visiting Savannah, a place steeped in history, legend and tradition but at the same time very dynamic and forward-thinking.

This city of 300,000 has earned its nickname “The Hostess City” for the way Savannahians love to share the magic of their hometown with anyone and everyone. Hospitality is an art form here, and you’ll find it everywhere, from down-home country diners to high tea in an elegant garden. Specialized tours of every kind are guided by local experts who delight in sharing their city’s treasure trove of secrets. And last but not least, throughout the year Savannah shows off how it can throw a party like no other town. No matter when you visit or what you’re there for, you’ll feel like a long-awaited old friend.

Savannah Georgia Home EntranceThis deliberate attention to and pride in the way the city presents herself goes back to the founding of Savannah as the capital of the 13th colony of Georgia. General James Olglethorpe, who claimed the land for King George in 1733, and carefully plotted out the city plan to include a series of 24 neighborhoods built around central, public squares. This structure remains largely intact today, and is the main reason Savannah is such a delightful place to tour on foot. Each “square” and its surrounding environs create districts with distinctive characters, and you can easily spend a day just getting to know one.
