When people think of Savannah, they usually conjure a vision of classic Southern living, genteel and charming. They think of a place unlike any other in the United States - old mansions, forts and cemeteries amid moss-draped oaks and mystical, fragrant wisteria. They think of squares with fountains and monuments. As dreamlike as it may sound, this unique picture is actually typical of what the Historic District looks like. But there’s also a lot more to “The Hostess City of the South.” It’s primarily a vibrant, modern place to live with the amenities, economy, and infrastructure to support the most active contemporary lifestyles.
Natural Settings, Arts and Culture
Beaches, parks and riverboats are just some elements of how to have fun in Savannah’s natural settings. Arts and culture abound in Savannah, including a strong educational base, featuring the Savannah College of Art and Design. Strong musical influences and a thriving restaurant scene, from casual to 5-star dining, await you. It has always been a strong draw for well-known artists, writers and musicians. The recently deceased Gregg Allman, co-founder of the Allman Brothers Band and a pioneer of Southern Rock, called Savannah home.
Savannah is steeped in tradition and lore. The melding of its history and culture create a je na sais quoi, a certain something that makes Savannah – well, Savannah.
Famous writers who have called Savannah home include Flannery O’Connor and Tom Wolfe. In the late 90s, John Berendt’s book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and the movie of the same name that followed, created a real tourist boom for Savannah – in addition to capturing the unique culture of this sly Southern city.
