THINGS TO DO
The charming city of Savannah, peppered with historic pink, red and blue houses, and boasting a downtown River Walk meandering along the Savannah River, begs to be explored on foot. Wander the 2.5-mile spread of the nation's largest National Historic Landmark District and people-watch in its numerous and lush neighborhood parks.
Shopping in Savannah
Savvy shoppers inevitably make their way to River Street, where nine blocks of shops sell Southern cookbooks, folk art, pottery and jewelry. ShopSCAD, operated by the hip and expansive Savannah College of Art and Design, features student-designed toys, home décor, clothing, jewelry and handbags, which seldom sit on the gallery's shelves for long.
