See & Do
Below is a list of our favorites in the Historic District, which are all within walking distance.
Life is a little slower in Savannah; don’t rush or you might miss the best parts!
Navigation tip: Bull St. runs north-south and house numbers indicate how many blocks away they are from Bull. For example, 102 W Broughton is one block west of Bull and 201 E Jones is two blocks east of Bull.
