My partner and I recently spent a few days of R&R on Amelia Island in Florida. On our last day we decided to drive up the coast for a day trip to a new city for us – Savannah, Georgia. I’d long heard great things about the historic, downtown core with its antebellum homes and tree-lined streets. Seeing this Southern perfection in person though was another matter and I quickly fell in love with this beautiful, coastal town.
Established in 1733, Savannah was the colonial capital of Georgia as well as the state’s first capital city. History in this beautiful city didn’t end with the colonial era, Savannah has played a key role in American history through today; all of which can be seen by taking a simple walk around town.
