There is no better way to see America than on foot. And there is no better way to appreciate what you are looking at than with a walking tour. Whether you are preparing for a road trip or just out to look at your own town in a new way.

Each walking tour describes historical and architectural landmarks and provides pictures to help out when those pesky street addresses are missing. Every tour also includes a quick primer on identifying architectural styles seen on American streets.

Savannah, Georgia’s First City, sits like a jewel just across the broad Savannah River. Historic 18th century garden squares, gourmet restaurants, antique shops and boutiques beckon by day and night. The name conjures images of nights redolent with honeysuckle, warm breezes and the glint of moonlight over the sweeping river and marsh. History, tradition, courtesy and hospitality are at the heart of our Southern culture.

General James Edward Oglethorpe and 120 travelers of the good ship Anne landed on a bluff high along the Savannah River in February 1733. The thirteenth and final American colony Georgia, was named after England’s King George II and Savannah became its first city. Oglethorpe laid the city out in a series of grids that allowed for wide open streets intertwined with shady public squares and parks. Today, the Historic District is a 2.5-mile walking district full of bistros, quaint shops, green squares and grand architecture.

Savannah played an important role in both the American Revolution and the Civil War and its downtown area is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States. This walkng tour of Savannah will begin...
