Our family Easter break road trip ended in Charleston as I reported in my last post, but it actually started in Florida, where we visited Tampa, Sarasota, St. Augustine and Jacksonville.
After Florida we reached beautiful Savannah, Georgia, the only place where we spent 2 nights, and today I want to share some of our impressions and pictures of Savannah.
Savannah is Georgia’s seaport on the Atlantic Ocean, separated from the state of South Carolina by the Savannah River. Savannah has a lot of rich history; it was chartered as the last English colony in America in 1733. Being a seaport, Savannah was an important military location in both the American Revolution and the Civil War, something that interests Red Bear and his love of history. Like Charleston, it has Historic Districts (Savannah Historic District and Savannah Victorian Historic District) filled with many old buildings with antebellum architecture, beautiful mansions, cobblestone squares, and more than 20 small parks with Spanish moss hanging from big oak trees. You can see the Historic District in a horse-drawn carriage ride, or simply walk around it as we did. One of the landmarks of the Historic District is the Saint John the Baptist Cathedral.
There are plenty of restaurants and hotels in the Historic District. One of the fun streets we explored in the Historic District was River Street, which is right on the bank of the Savannah River; it has many clubs, restaurants, and tourist shops, but all housed in historic buildings.
Clothing styles I saw in Savannah Historic District seemed different from what I saw in Charleston. Almost everyone was dressed in casual vacation style, but maybe that was just because it was the middle of Spring break, and there were a lot of tourists. I might have been the only lady dressed up in lace there, but it is always nice to receive compliments on an outfit!
Before the trip I did some research about Savannah houses and architecture, and I was really impressed by what I saw there — but I just didn’t have enough time to see all I wanted, so I definitely plan to visit Savannah again.
