Historic Downtown Savannah

Savannah was founded in 1733 by General James Oglethorpe. Before he arrived to Savannah he had planned out the layout of the new city that blended architecture and green space. Close to 300 years later Historic Downtown Savannah is still a great mix of mansions and town-homes mingled with commercial properties surrounding the squares.

The iconic Downtown squares are green spaces that have benches where locals and visitors alike can take in all of what Historic Savannah offers and be shaded by the live oaks that are dressed with Spanish moss. And who can forget Savannah’s famous square Forsyth Park?  Over looking Forsyth Park is The Mansion Hotel and 700 Drayton restaurant.

If you have ever seen any pictures of Savannah during St. Patrick's Day you have most likely seen River Street.  River Street is a street that goes East to West that follows the Savannah River.  A cobble stone street that is lined with local stores and bars used to be the place where Savannah would import and export all of her goods to the world!

Just a couple of block south of River Street is Broughton Street.  Broughton Street is lined with local and national stores, restaurants, and bars.  This once vibrant street has gone through many changes over the years and is thriving once again!

Ironically, downtown Savannah is also home to the most cutting-edge art school in the country, Savannah College of Art and Design, along with one of the newest and exciting Law Schools in the country, Savannah Law School.
