Savannah Favorites: 69 reviews and 115 photos
Favorite thing: In touring any city, some of the buildings that stand out are the government buildings which tend to be monumental in scale. These buildings are often more important to residents than to tourists, although even tourists may want to know where the Post Office is.
The U.S. Post Office has Massive Georgia marble and granite building with intricate friezes under eaves. Many architectural ideas are combined here. Notice the tower with its marble arches and intriguing details.
Savannah City Hall - With its distinctive dome in tissue-paper-thin, 23-karat gold leaf, Savannah's City Hall (1906) is the first building constructed for exclusive use by the municipal government.
U.S. Customs House at 1-5 E. Bay Street is a Greek revival style building designed 1848-52 by John Norris. An austere granite temple with Tower-of-the-Winds portico.
