Savannah Rambles  - Architecture walking tours of a unique American city

Related Links/ Recommendations

Many guests have remarked that there is much more to see in Savannah than they realized.  So you might want to stay a day or two longer than initially planned. There are many fine museums within the Landmark District including:

Temple Mikve Israel is the only Gothic Revival synagogue in North America, a unique piece of architecture.

Shopping enthusiasts will enjoy Broughton Street, Savannah's Victorian retail street, River Street/Factor's Walk for restaurants and tourist mementos, The City Market for restaurants and a concentration of artist studios, and the Design District, small shops with unique items centered around the intersection of Jones St. and Whitaker St.  Of course antiques make a great Savannah souvenier and an afternoon at 37th@Abercorn  Antiques is just plain fun!

Other attractions close by include Tybee Island Beach and Tybee Lighthouse Complex, Fort Pulaski-designed by Robert E. Lee, The Mighty 8th Air Force Museum, Fort Jackson, and the Central of Georgia Railroad Complex.

Really into Georgia history geneology?  Then you will not want to miss a visit to the Georgia Historical Society.

The Bohemian

The Mulberry Inn

The worst way to see Savannah is by car - do not even attempt - you will be tying up traffic, missing most of the scenery and spending most of your time looking for parking.  As for the trolley tours, many of my customers say they just cause confusion due to their winding routes, not to mention the noise and smell of diesel fuel.  The most convenient way to get from point A to point B if you tire of walking are the bike taxis:

     Royal Bike Taxi - 912-341-3944

Maybe after a full day of touring you're looking for a local hide-a-way to relax and enjoy a cool adult beverage - if you want to mix with locals check out:

    O'Connell's Irish Pub, 42 Drayton, 
    between E. Broughton & E. Congress Streets

    Pinkie Master's, corner of E. Harris & Drayton Streets.

Interested in books on historic architecture and the history of Georgia?  I heartily recommend exploring the offerings of The Beehive Press.
