Georgia's crown jewel is a cinematic collage of antebellum architecture, gracious Southern charm and refined cultural arts. But underneath its genteel surface lies a decadent, eccentric and sometimes seamy underbelly that only adds to its Southern Gothic appeal.
The heart and soul of this historic city is expansive Forsyth Park, a 30-acre green space. Its Parisian-style fountain provides the quintessential photo op. From there, Savannah's Historic District expands in a grid connected by a series of Spanish moss-draped public squares, each more gorgeous than the next. Top attractions include historic homes like the elegant Owens-Thomas House (1819) and the Sorrel Weed House (1838), rumored to be haunted.
The antique-filled Mercer-Williams House (1868), setting of the novel and movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” is now a museum open for tours. Visit the “bird girl” statue at Telfair Academy, part of the Telfair Museums along with the world-class Jepson Center. It's all in stark contrast to the nearby Riverwalk, a party-centric potpourri of bars and restaurants with Savannah River views.
