“A Walk Through History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

Savannah's historic district is just that, a walk through history. There are all these beautiful homes, which we learned in this area you must maintain the period ambiance of the area so there are no stucco house fronts. We learned about the type of bricks, the streets, the squares, even the alleyways, all the while walking through the dripping cypress trees. We learned that during the period, slaves weren't allowed to use the main thoroughfares, that there could be bodies buried still in some of the backyards, and that if you purchase one of the homes, you have to restore it so that it is a replica of its former glory (but if you look beyond the fences, you can see the modernization-so don't look beyond the fence!), and that some of the real estate is the most expensive in the area. And despite all the hustle and bustle of the cars and tours going on, you get the sense of walking down the street during the antebellum period.

“Chilly Thanksgiving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

Stayed at a hotel in the Historic District and was able to walk to all attractions that interested us. Only dislike was the weather. Much too cold, even for November.

“Take Away the Traffic - Turn the Clock Back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

Charming and insightful to the "Old South" good living. Lots of effort has been put forth to preserve this area so we can appreciate the past. If you removed the cards and traffic signs you'd be hard pressed to tell what century you were living in.
