If you have the opportunity to visit just one southern town in your lifetime, Savannah should be that one. Surrendered to William Sherman at the end of his March to the Sea, Savannah was spared from destruction during the Civil War. As a result, Southerners and Carpetbaggers alike can partake in its timeless splendor and charm. If you like a rainbow of flowers and huge live oaks dripping with Spanish moss, then Savannah is your ticket. Savannah's downtown area, which includes the Savannah Historic District, the Savannah Victorian Historic District and 22 park-like squares, is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States. Savannah is a walker’s paradise. If you are so inclined, pick up a detailed map of these beautiful park-like squares and feast your eyes at the lush vegetation and historic homes. Savannah has four colleges and universities offering bachelor's, master's, and professional or doctorate degree programs: Armstrong Atlantic State University, Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah State University, and South University. EARNS OUR HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
