Savannah, GA 2015

I was back in my hometown Savannah over Thanksgiving for five days, brought my bike and did a little touring. Here are about 100 shots of the lovely historic district where I grew up. Much has changed and much remains the same. The development of Broughton Street into an upscale shopping district continues unabated and is definitely starting to give the city a more cosmopolitan feel. The Victorian District and Starland Arts District just south of downtown continues to gentrify with lots of cool new restaurants, cafes, and bars. Lots of pedestrians and bicyclists out and about too. Enjoy the tour!

Starland Arts District/Victorian District:






Forsyth Park:

Nice pictures! I was in Savannah a few months ago and had dinner at the Olde Pink House, it was great. Also visited Tybee Island... was also gonna go to St. Simon's but decided not to at the last second.

Pink House is pretty solid dining fare. I especially love the variety of actual pubs and bars. I hope Savannah can retain it's character as it continues to grow, and Georgia needs it to grow.

St. Simon's seems a bit far from Savannah for a visit but it does have some of the state's best beaches. Georgia's version of Hilton Head.

Wow this is a dazzling glimpse of Savannah!

I haven't been to the city in about 25 years, and it's really gotten better. Without a doubt.
