Like a living movie set from the past, downtown Savannah offers itself as an elegant step back in time to a pre-colonial era world of cobblestone streets as envisioned by the Hostess City’s Founder, General James Oglethorpe. His vision of a stately English Town of picturesque garden squares in a port city urban environment is as uniquely coastal luxury living at its best today as it was back in the day. Stroll along renowned River Street alongside one of the country’s most bustling ports. When you tire of perusing countless world class restaurants, taking in our numerous scenic attractions, antiquing and power shopping in a wide variety of boutique shops, head southwest across Bay Street (if you can avoid the temptation of more of the same) to reinvigorated City Market. No surprise here, either, as there is even more shopping opportunities, restaurants, art galleries and live music day or night. These blended voices from a history filled bygone era skillfully married to an emerging Savannah Tourism Industry still live up to Savannah’s well named mantle as embodied by the consummate hospitality professional that all of our “Hostess City Experience Alliance” member businesses deliver for your peak travel experience.
Prepare to seize the moment once you step away from Savannah’s main attractions on River Street and City Market as you enjoy an intimate glimpse of the Hostess City’s remaining 2.5 square mile Landmark Historic District with many of the touring options available to you. Tours of every persuasion can be taken by Trolley Tour, Horse Drawn Carriage Tour, Pedicab Tour, or Self Guided Walking Tour in one of America’s Top Ten Walking City’s in downtown Savannah, Georgia. After building up an appetite, dine in a breezy piazza al fresco at one of the many quaint cafes and seafood restaurants scattered throughout the district. As night falls, search out Savannah’s popular Theatre District or let the invigorating mixture of music and laughter guide you into one of the trendy historic district nightspots. And of course, the night life on nearby Tybee Island or across the Savannah River on exclusive Hilton Head Island always beckons the adventuresome beach loving traveler for an out of the district jaunt. Or better yet head south down the comparatively less populated Georgia Coast. Don’t stay out too late as the morning will bring an even greater array of history filled opportunities within Georgia’s crown jewel on the coast, Historic Savannah.
