Known as the nation's largest registered Urban Historic Landmark District, Savannah's 22 green squares and 1,600+ historically and architecturally significant structures are all within a 2.5 square mile area.

So wear your walking shoes for this extended weekend and stroll the Historic District. Savannah was founded in 1733 by General James Edward Oglethorpe whose colonial plan was based on a grid of residences and broad thoroughfares with spacious public squares at regular intervals. This design has blossomed into a gracious city whose downtown has been enhanced by more than fifty years of preservation activity. Twenty-two oak-canopied squares surrounded by lovely homes and churches give Savannah a character of its own. Guide services can personalize your walk to a specific interest.
