Somehow, Savannah has kept a low profile as a travel destination in the past decade. It's a city many have yet to visit and with it's northern, more popular destination, Charleston, it's often overlooked. Savannah lies on the coast of Georgia, overlooking the Savannah River. It's known for it's oak lined streets, parks, and charm. It is by far, one of the most beautiful cities in the nation and a definite spot to visit on your next roadtrip to the south! 

 

For travelers looking to experience the quintessential southern charm of a historical and buzz-worthy city, Savannah is it. 

 

We have listed our top (Instagram-worthy) spots to see on your next trip to Savannah!

Forsyth Park is the largest park in the city, occupying over 30 acres. It's inspired by Paris and with an impressive fountain in the northern end of the park, it's a destination in itself. Feel free to spend hours wandering the oak lined paths and basking in its shades. If you're lucky, you'll catch a wedding or photoshoot taking place right by the fountain. If walking towards Forsyth Park from the historic district, make sure to stroll up Bull Street for a beautiful take on the quaint streets. 

 

2. St. John the Baptist Cathedral & Lafayette Square
