When you think of Savannah, Georgia, a few rather old fashioned things come to mind: Southern Belles, old, decaying plantations, Civil War memorials.  But Savannah’s historic significance makes it anything but old-fashioned.  Savannah is home to many historical sites, many of which are incorporated into one of the greatest downtowns in America.

Each year Savannah attracts millions of visitors, who enjoy the city’s architecture and historic buildings: the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low (founder of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America), the Georgia Historical Society (the oldest continually operating historical society in the South), the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences (one of the South’s first public museums), the First African Baptist Church (one of the oldest African American Baptist congregations in the United States), Temple Mickve Israel (the third oldest synagogue in America), and the Central of Georgia Railway roundhouse complex (the oldest standing antebellum rail facility in America).

Savannah’s historic downtown is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States.  But if you’re more interested in modern conveniences than historical architecture, there are carriage rides, riverboat cruises, and a lively music scene.  Savannah is also home to many famous restaurants such as Paula Deen’s The Lady and Sons.  ForsythPark is one of the city’s beautiful riverside stretches of greenspace.  In Savannah, there is plenty of time to see both the historic and modern sections that make this one of the best downtowns in America.
