Holiday Shopping in Savannah, Georgia

Savannah may be known as a city of elegance and mystery, but this Southern belle also knows how to celebrate the holidays. Established in 1733, Savannah is known as America’s first “planned” city, with founder James Oglethorpe laying out the streets with 22 tree-filled squares. This bustling port was the place to export cotton, and visitors can still stroll down cobblestone streets under century-old live oaks dripping with Spanish moss.
