Activities in the hostess city

Savannah, Georgia is a city like no other. Nicknamed Hostess City of the South, you'll feel right at home in the relaxed yet lively environs of downtown Savannah, one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the country.

Because of its renowned urban design, the city is easily explored by foot — or trolley, horse-drawn carriage, pedicab, Segway, bicycle and even hearse. Relax under the canopy of live oaks draped in Spanish moss in one of Savannah's famous squares. Stroll along streets lined with historic homes and churches. Browse art galleries, antique shops and unique boutiques. Enjoy a taste of the South at restaurants that will satisfy any foodie.
