There are a lot of reasons to visit Savannah and it can appeal to you for several reasons. Here are just a few!

Reasons to Visit Savannah

    • History – there is a monument, church or dedicated square at almost every step as you walk through the historic district of Savannah. Even without a tour, there are plaques everywhere detailing for you the importance of the place where you are standing.
    • Foodie’s Paradise – Spice Stores, honey and lots of other places to bring back gifs for your foodie friends. Also delicious restaurants, bars and cafe’s for every budget.
    • Pretty tree lined streets for romantic walks.

  • City Market – a place where all of Savannah meets – 4 block open air market of snack stores, restaurants, shopping, outdoor seating and live music.


Now let’s go through some more reasons to visit Savannah…

Sunsets – Savannah is a city with gorgeous sunsets. Try to book a hotel room with a terrace where you can sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the gorgeous colors of the sunset. I am sure the sunrise is just as gorgeous, but I am not a morning person.

Mossy Trees – There are many moss filled trees in Savannah. There are many stories of why the moss is there. One taxi driver gave me one version. Savannah is known as one of the most haunted cities of America and his version adds to that. In 1876, one of the largest Yellow Fever outbreaks hit Savannah. There were so many bodies to bury that legend has it many were buried in tunnels underneath the city, which were then sealed shut to prevent further spread of the disease. The moss on the trees is the souls of those buried underneath the city or so the legend goes.

Foodies – There are eating options for every budget, but you really should make sure to experience low country cooking – Be sure to check out a Low Country Boil and Shrimp and Grits at Narobia’s.

Forsyth Park – Named after Governor John Forsyth, it is a pretty park with green pastures, a fountain and Confederate statues. For me, the best reason to visit Forsyth Park is the weekly farmer’s market on Saturday mornings. Not only do you get to taste some local Georgia produce, but it is a great opportunity to interact with the locals.

One of the main reasons I love to travel it to meet different people and learn about different people in every city I visit. That’s even a greater pull than monuments and history of each city.

Savannah Riverbank – The Riverbank is bustling area of Savannah with restaurants and shops. This is also where you can catch a Riverbank cruise.

There is also a statue in dedication to the many people who were brought to Savannah as slaves with a Maya Angelou quote – “We were stolen sold and bought together from the African continent. We got on the slave ships together. We lay back to belly in the holds of the slave ships in each other’s excrement and urine together, sometimes died together and our lifeless bodies thrown overboard together. Today we are standing up together with faith and even some joy!”

Oglethorpe – James Oglethorpe was the founder of Savannah and there are many odes to Mr Oglethorpe throughout the city of Savannah and many sights that bear his mark.

    Savannah looks lovely from your photos. I’ve traveled a lot around the States but not yet made it to Savannah. I think I should 🙂

  2. Sofia

    Savannah looks amazing. Sadly I haven’t been to the States yet and I’m really waiting for that days to come. Who knows if I get to visit Savannah as well…

  3. Kemi

    I too have travelled more abroad than within the US and tbh, I’m not that keen on the deep South but Savannah and Charleston are 2 cities I really want to visit…but with people and not alone. Those shrimp and corn are getting me hungry!

      I understand your reservations and I had them also as a single black female but I ended up going and never gave it a second thought People are so friendly and lots of expats from NYC With everything so compactly laid out you are never too far from your hotel.

    Savannah looks beautiful through your pictures. This looks relaxed and peaceful place. Visiting spice market must be nice and City Market also looks good.

  5. Richa

    Such awesome pictures. I liked the way you have captured Savannah, Its manicured parks, horse-drawn carriages, antebellum architecture and of course the cobblestoned squares 🙂

  6. Daniel

    I’ve never visited Savannah and I didn’t think it was such an exciting city. After reading this article, however, my perception has changed and would love to visit someday
