Savannah began her reign in the South as one of the most beautiful and charming cities when General Oglethorpe arrived and claimed a colony in the name of King George II of England. Wanting to create a city befitting of a king, his plan was to create a city of squares with more green park space than any other. Today, the city's 24 squares are said to act as Savannah's "living room." There's Washington Square, named after our first president; Johnson Square, where Nathanael Greene is buried beneath a monument erected in his honor; and Crawford Square, which neighbors one of the country's oldest cemeteries, Colonial Park, to name a few. Walk through these green spaces filled with moss-covered oaks, or head to the nine-block River Street, with its cobblestone passageways and an Old World Charm. Savannah oozes Southern Charm, from the mouths of its residents with sweet and rich accents through to its wrought iron and fanciful architecture.

Not far from Savannah is Georgia's spectacular coastline, made up of barrier islands and filled with salt marshes, dunes and rivers, is such a gem that its islands have been nicknamed the Golden Isles. Perhaps it's due to the golden hue the sky and sand take on during sunrises and sunsets. Or perhaps it's because this stretch of coast, only about 100 miles total, is a treasure to the many who visit its sandy shores.
