Today I want to talk a little bit about Savannah, Georgia. There are not many cities like Savannah. Even just saying the name Savannah makes you think about southern charm. I often think that there’s a part of me that wants to retire to a city like Savannah or Charleston. I must admit, I am a romantic at heart and romanticizing about a city like Savannah plays to my imagination 100%.
Most people don’t know that Savannah is also known for SCAD or Savannah College of Art and Design. To many of us this school goes underneath the radar, but to anyone who is in the art and design industry it is one of the tops. For me, it makes sense because a cultural city like Savannah has the energy that would promote a school like this. For anyone looking to jump into the design industry, please consider this college. Not only will you go to an amazing college, you will also live in an amazing city.
Savannah also boasts one of the best film festivals in the entire nation if not the world. Some of the best filmmakers in the world attend this film festival in its 19 years running. Truthfully, Savannah is a one-stop shop for culture.
Savannah is a dream for any designer or artist. This charming city, with its amazing architecture, 200 year old weeping willow trees and historically preserved mansions, can really get your creative juices flowing. – Karina Jones
It’s incredible, but after giving you the rundown about Savannah it is making me want to pick up my stuff and move there myself. For me, design is about experience and emotion. It is all about creating an environment and experience that is lasting. There is a creativity in all of us and cities like Savannah bring that out. When you check into the Mansion on Forsyth Park you will feel that and more.
The stylish and designed to perfection Mansion on Forsyth Park located in Savannah’s Historical District is hands down the place to stay. The visuals that I’m including with in this article are from the Mansion on Forsyth Park. Wait, to be honest this mansion needs its own article so stay tuned for Part II Wednesday…
Some of the other must sees are Tybee Island, River Street with its tons of restaurants and, of course, Savannah’s historical district. You can take some haunted tours as well, but for today I want to show you some of the historical homes that will just blow you away. So now sit back enjoy the visuals and welcome to Savannah.
With its multiple wraparound porches, this 1895 Victorian home is jaw-dropping. There are not too many places in the U.S. where you can still feast your eyes on an original Victorian mansion.
This quaint living space is what Southern living is all about.
Built in 1899, the Gingerbread House was named for its gingerbread arches and is considered part of the Steamboat Gothic architecture style. Today it is mostly used for wedding receptions.
This private residence, yes I said private residence, got the name Steamboat House because of its resemblance to a river boat. From what I understand, the homeowner throws some of the most amazing holiday parties every year. Wouldn’t we love to be invited to one of those soirees…
