Five must-dos for a visit to Savannah

SAVANNAH, Ga. — With so much to do and see, a visit to Savannah can seem a little daunting.

But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are five must-dos for a visit to Georgia’s oldest city: 

Scope out the city’s squares: The city has about two dozen squares. It may be hard to visit all of them, but when in town, park the car and head to the closest square. 

View the monuments: There are countless monuments dedicated to the people and events that shaped the city into what it is today. Like the city’s squares, it may be hard to see them all, but one can see many (especially downtown) by walking the city’s streets for a couple of hours. 

Walk down River Street: From the shops to the river activity to the people watching, River Street is the heart of downtown Savannah. 

Enjoy Southern cuisine: Paula Deen, anyone? Yes, please. Check out Lady & Sons restaurant.

Learn about the city’s history: Take a ghost tour, consider a walking tour or stop by one of the city’s museums, such as the Savannah History Museum or the Roundhouse Railroad Museum.
