Experience Southern Hospitality in Savannah
A bluff overlooking the Savannah River is, as inscribed on a stone memorial there, “where the Colony of Georgia was founded, February 12, 1733, by General James Edward Oglethorpe.”
Oglethorpe and 114 colonists had sailed from England. His vision of a utopian community resulted in the construction of a city divided in grids and featuring 24 beautified public squares. All but three original squares remain intact. You can see them today in the Historic Savannah District.
Savannah is known as the “Hostess City of the South” and increases in popularity as a vacation destination every year. Visitors love the colorful waterfront sights of River Street, the well-marked historical landmarks, acclaimed restaurants of all cuisines and a friendly people.
