Even though Oglethorpe's experiment failed, Savannah thrives as a symbol of Southern charm. In Savannah's Historic District you will find 18th and 19th century homes.
In Sherman's famous "march to the sea" he couldn't bring himself to burn Savannah so he presented Savannah to President Lincoln as a Christmas present.
Savannah keeps a balance between the present and the past. Historic buildings have been preserved. Savannah's riverfront, which at one time was the busiest cotton port in the South, was restored in the 1970s. Now you can find boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants on the riverfront.
Have a super-delicious Wednesday!
