Without a doubt, one of the most striking elements of this stunning southern city is that it’s completely awash in gorgeous old buildings. Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia, and downtown Savannah is repeatedly the site of television and movie productions for its numerous parks, its charming historic district, and captivating 19th century architecture. According to the Savannah Historic Foundation, more than 40% of the 2,500 buildings inventoried in Savannah had architectural or historical significance, making Savannah one of the most architecturally rich towns in the U.S. On an architectural tour of the city, you’ll find exquisite examples of Georgian, Victorian, Federal, Greek Revival, and Regency styles that make Savannah a perfect place to enjoy at a leisurely pace (carriage ride, anyone?). Some highlights are the Andrew Low House, the Davenport House, the Owens-Thomas House, and the Gingerbread House – all have bountiful historic and aesthetic appeal.
