Savannah has one of the most unique and admired urban designs in the world and is a runner’s and walker’s dream as the historic district amounts to just about 2.5 square miles. To top it off, the weather is amenable all year round!

Pull on those walking shoes and absorb the history of this stunningly beautiful place! Bring a book and picnic in one of the 22 historic squares that are featured in memorable books and movies. Dessert could be some melt-in-your-mouth pralines you picked up fresh at the riverfront. Or just sit on a bench and soak it all in.

Alert: You will get a workout from looking up, down, front, back, and sideways at the elegant architecture and lush gardens that are simply… just there…And you might want to stretch to touch that dripping Spanish moss and bend to smell all those flowers. Who needs a yoga mat anyway?
