Enchanting Savannah

Whenever I think of Savannah, Georgia, I always think of an exotic, steamy woman with her Spanish moss hair, her lush green landscape as eyes, her multi-colored flora as her seductive wardrobe, and her wrought-iron balustrades as her attractive jewels.

You cannot visit Savannah without being seduced by her beauty and genteel charm; however, I always suspected that under her gentility simmered a darker, hypnotic side with a touch of the forbidden.

Savannah resembles New Orleans but without the "exhibitionist attitude". Both have beautiful architecture, mysterious tales of "voo doo", and ghosts from the past. But, Savannah seems more contained, more refined, more sophisticated.

My analogy is a rather crude one, but I think it fits perfectly.Whereas New Orleans is famous for bare breasts; Savannah is famous for low cleavage.

Savannah is perfect for romantics, for architectural buffs, and for lovers of nature. So, join me as I take you on a tour of the lovely Savannah, the Savannah that I adore.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Architectural "gems", Delicious Cuisine, Natural Beauty
  • Cons:Steaming, hot summers
  • In a nutshell:Savannah is a seductive, exquisite city of historic magnitude.

    Did you actually wait in line for Mrs. Wilkes? I couldn't do it with our short time frame so we went to Pirates House instead :-) Clary's was also good.

    Another wonderful tour I made with you Dee! I more and more think about a tour in “Old America”, you describe so well. Savannah looks so charming with its city squares, historical restaurants, Magnolia Palace, and the story of Florence Martus is so moving
