Everywhere you turn, you’ll see lush vegetation and towering trees in the city of Savannah. Naturally, the city is sometimes called “The Forest City,” as it has a history of planting many trees along parks and streets, dating back to 1891. Based on scenery alone, couples have much to look forward to when they visit. But there’s much more to the city than Spanish moss. Savannah is a purely Southern destination — one that oozes charm, hospitality and historical richness.
One of the best examples of this is Savannah’s historic waterfront district, which comprises just two-and-a-half square miles packed full of historic structures, shops, inns, gardens and culture. When you visit the area’s museums, historic mansions and gardens, you’ll get a real taste of where the city has been and how preserving said history creates a palpable sense of Southern pride — an intellectually-driven date for history buffs.
