Savannah is called the Hostess City of the South for a reason. Built around twenty-two public squares, the city's very design encourages people to come together. Warm welcomes await visitors beneath every moss-draped oak, and you can't enter a shop without receiving a hearty hello! The friendliness continues beyond the Historic District, all the way out to Tybee Island, a quirky beach town known for local color and memorable characters.Wherever you go, you're sure to find national landmarks, parks, and scenic cemeteries dotting the landscape, all steeped in deep Southern history. Make sure to leave yourself time for a Friday night art show and enjoy a scrumptious supper at a locally-owned restaurant. And of course take advantage of Savannah's legendary bar scene. 100 Things to Do in Savannah Before You Die serves as your introduction to everything the Hostess City has to offer.
