Hostess City of the South

Dubbed the Hostess City of the South, Savannah is the sort of place that invites you to stay awhile. There are twenty-two squares to explore, each lined with historic homes, churches, museums, and plenty of live oaks dripping in spanish moss—which, as any local will quickly note, is neither Spanish nor moss (in fact, it’s more closely related to pineapples and succulents). While Savannah has long been steeped in history, a new generation of chefs and makers have breathed new life into the city while honoring its past. Take Artillery Bar, which brings mid-century glamour—and a killer cocktail menu—to a Civil War-era cavalry storehouse. Or the Alida Hotel, where guests can settle into lush accommodations in a centuries-old building on Savannah’s bustling riverfront that was once slated for demolition. Support the city’s budding artists with a trip to ShopSCAD, a Bull Street storefront that houses paintings, decor, and wearable art all handcrafted by talented students of Savannah College of Art and Design.
