Beschreibung

A complete guide for everything you need to experience a great Long Weekend in historic SAVANNAH. (Also nearby Tybee Island.)

One of my favorite places because I visited often when I had a girlfriend there in my college days. And since my family originated in Charleston, I’ve always had a fondness for the Charleston-Savannah rivalry for “Best Historic Southern Town.”

“We had been to Charleston the previous year, and used the Delaplaine guide for that trip, which turned out so nicely, we thought we’d try the one he wrote for Savannah. Just as helpful, and actually a lot more information than you could ever hope to cover in a Long Weekend.”

--- Morris J., Seattle
 

“We’ve always been fans of Charleston, but had never been to Savannah before. Attending a business conference in nearby Hilton Head, I decided to get this book, extend my trip by 2 days, and had a truly magical time in Savannah, a place I will definitely return to.”

--- Fred H., Dayton


You'll save a lot of time using this concise guide.

=Lodgings (throughout the area) variously priced

=Fine & budget restaurants, more than enough listings to give you a sense of the variety to be found.

Chapter 1

WHY SAVANNAH?

Every time I visit Savannah, I ask myself the same question: what is it about this fair city that I like so much?

An impossible question (for me) to answer. The culture? The food (Ah, yes, the food!)? The people? The charming layout of the city?

It’s all of those things, of course. Savannah is a much more interesting city than Charleston because you can basically see what there is to see in Charleston in a day. A Long Weekend is more than ample time to savor the riches of Charleston (excluding its numerous fine restaurants) unless you venture to some of the plantations outside town.

Not so Savannah. You’ll need a lot more than a Long Weekend to take in everything Savannah has to offer, trust me.

Of all historic figures, Civil War General William Sherman is largely responsible for preserving the city by the simple act of not burning it down when he made his famous March to the Sea, destroying everything in his Army’s path—except Savannah.

My first experience here was as an undergrad when I came to meet the parents of my college girlfriend. Theirs was one of the older families in Savannah, and their name even graces one of its most famous squares.

Speaking of those famous squares, the layout of Savannah makes it very interesting. There are 21 squares that give this city a strong human scale other U.S. cities will never have. Savannah feels more like London than any other American city to my mind (except of course for the weather). These squares, sometimes frustrating for motorists who have to navigate around them, make cycling around Savannah a pleasure.

There used to be 24 squares in the original plan of the city, but 3 of these were sacrificed to developers who demolished them before the people came to their senses and stopped the wanton destruction of Savannah’s valuable heritage. Another square, Ellis, once no more than a parking lot, is now looking more like it did in the old days.

A little side note: famed lyricist Johnny Mercer, who wrote some 1,600 songs and took home 4 Oscars for Best Song, was from here. He was one of the great contributors to the Great
