We arrived in Savannah and went to the Visitor Center where we picked up a city map. We drove over to Forsyth Square and took a stroll all around it. This is a beautiful park and we can see why it is such a popular attraction. The only downside to it was all the homeless people laying around and the signs telling you to call 911 if someone asks you for money or food. We knew in advance that Savannah has a higher than normal crime rate, so we were prepared. We knew we would be wandering around the city streets by ourselves, so we made use of our concealed carry permits. Thankfully, we did not have any problems but there were a few times we were nervous.
We visited every square and took pictures of everything that caught our eye. Below are a few of them, the rest are on the page for the 2016 road trip. A link is in the right hand menu on most pages.
We enjoyed our trip to Savannah even though it was very hot. We especially liked the architecture of the old buildings and learning a little about the history of the area. Cynthia liked Tybee Island the best, but she is a beach person by nature. All that being said, Savannah is a good place to visit but we would never, ever want to live there.
