Savannah was established in 1733 by its founder James Oglethorpe and a group of English settlers. Oglethrope is credited with creating the city squares that make Savannah so unique. The squares are surrounded by homes, churches, shops and galleries.
During the Civil War, Savannah was the "prize" at the end of the Union army's "March to the Sea" in December 1864. It was spared by General Sherman who made Savannah a Christmas gift to President Abraham Lincoln.
Today, Savannah invites the traveler to experience its spendor and discover secrets of the Old South. Come along with me and experience some of the beauty of Savannah.
Just down the street from our hotel was this wonderful shop - The Paris Market. If you are ever in Savannah, I highly recommend this shop. So "chic"....filled with natural decorations. The shop owner was very kind in allowing me to take pictures of their store.

Hubby loved this house....everywhere you looked you saw towering oaks filled with Spanish moss
We didn't stop and get out because you could not go in the house due to construction but I thought it looked so southern with its oak trees and moss
