USA/GA: Savannah

Just across the river fro South Carolina lies the beautiful town of Savannah in Georgia. It’s often considered to be a classic stereotype of the old South – grand old mansions amid Spanish moss-draped giant trees, hot and humid air. Savannah was the first town in North America to be laid out on a regular plan, with a grid of streets interspersed with large squares with monuments and fountains throughout. The city didn’t see any fighting during the American Civil War, so all the original grand architecture is full intact. The most impressive in the historic district is the Bull Street, starting at City Hall and Customs House and leading to the Forsyth Park.
