Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We loved all the squares in Savannah. They are relaxing. They have benches so you can sit and enjoy the beautiful trees, plants, surroundings, and people watch. Great place to rest under the wonderful shade of all the gorgeous trees!

I love the way the city is set up. Squares every few blocks. As we walked so much it was nice to stop in the shade and people watch as we rested. The homeless people are a problem. I know wherever we visit they are around. Note to all vacation destinations: put them on a bus and send them to Chicago.

This square along with others like it were originally designed to be fire breaks within the city. Very beautiful spot to rest while walking throughout the city.

Charming large square with huge sweeping moss trees, a bubbly fountain and tons of benches. Surrounded by some stunning homes this is great place you will often find locals at. This fountain is known to be died green for St Patty’s.

Another square in Savannah this one has less monuments but does have a lot of old growth trees. It is very well maintained and a great place to stroll. There is a lot of history so be sure to read up before you go to the square. There are a lot of very old trees and some great vegetation.
