Dreamy Savannah in pictures

Dreamy Savannah in pictures

Last Updated on April 13, 2021

Savannah, Georgia, was one of the destinations on our New York to New Orleans road trip that we both looked most forward to, having wanted to visit this little town in Georgia for a long time. We both had certain images of the town in mind before we even arrived: grand Victorian mansions, little squares with locals reading the papers on the benches, trees filled with Spanish moss…

And when we arrived, we were not disappointed! Savannah turned out to be one of our favorite places in the U.S., and we loved the small-town feel, the friendly people, the independent cafes and walking the tree-lined streets for hours and hours.

Enjoy Savannah through our lens:

Great pics! I am still upset about not making it to Savannah during my trip around the USA in 2004.

Hey Spencer! Don't worry, one of the cool things about Savannah is its timeless feeling. Even if you go in 2015 I bet the city will be almost entirely the same!

I tend to get a bit stir crazy in small towns but I feel like a few days here with a good book would be heavenly.

Absolutely! The perfect place to read - the parks, the squares, the little cafes... :)

Savannah really is a great town. We visited for the first time last year and fell in love. Like you said, we could spend days just wandering the different squares downtown. And the shortage of great stuff there.

Absolutely! We found so many independent little coffee shops and restaurants, we could spend weeks eating our way around Savannah :)

Thanks for your beautiful pictures of the city where I was born and live. I appreciate the reminders of its uniqueness, which can be taken for granted as I rush through life each day. Often it takes a visitor's eye to remind us locals of what we have. Come back soon.

Thanks so much, Chuck! You are very lucky to live in such a wonderful city :) We will be back soon for sure!
