Savannah Scenic Views

In Savannah’s 2.5 square mile Historic District, picturesque places and images unfold around every turn. Street after street of stately historic homes surrounding shady squares centered by impressive statues all have history to tell. Brilliant flowers cascade over wrought iron trellises; Spanish moss veils ancient live oaks; showy white magnolia blossoms punctuate glossy, dark green leaves.

Dolphin downspouts, symbols of good fortune, are functional art and hauntingly beautiful statuary fills garden cemeteries. Along the vital river, ships from everywhere make the journey into port; ancient brick buildings climb up the bluff; cobblestone streets are polished with age. Just outside the Historic District, long vistas of tidal marsh laced with meandering estuaries are dotted with motionless wading birds. Historic forts and lighthouses stand as silent sentinels of time past. On the coast, expansive beaches stretch for miles, fishing boats head out for a day’s catch, bottlenose dolphin leap from the sea.
