Savannah Hotel with Easy Access to Historic District and Tybee Island
With its 18th- and 19th-century architecture and tree-filled public squares, the Savannah Historic District draws millions of visitors each year—a portrait of the idyllic Old South. Locals, however, flock to a lesser-known destination: nearby Tybee Island, a quiet coastal town with some of the nation’s oldest lighthouses still in operation. Both sites are easily accessible from Country Inn & Suites Savannah Midtown—the inn’s street runs right into the heart of the city and is only two right turns from Tybee Island.
The hotel has elements of traditional Southern architecture—the front porch is topped with white rocking chairs and benches. Inside, the atmosphere is homey, with hardwood floors, a fireplace, and a grand staircase. There’s also an indoor pool and hot tub, and a lending library replete with the middle-school diaries of esteemed authors.
Breakfast is served each morning in the inn’s dining room. Staff member Phyllis Odom's favorite breakfast item is the make-your-own-burrito bar, where you can craft a southwestern wrap with eggs, ham, cheddar cheese, salsa and hot sauce. Coming in at a close second is the belgian waffle station—as Phyllis puts it, “Who doesn’t love waffles?”
Savannah, Georgia: Historical Mansions and a Lively River Walk
Founded in 1733 as Georgia's first town, Savannah is not only one of the most graceful cities in the South but also one the most historic. The old but well-preserved architecture landed it on Forbes’s 2011 list of America's Best Downtowns, and Travel + Leisure dubbed it one of the World's Best Cities in 2011 for the way it "reveres its heritage.” You can see this in the city's 22 famous public squares, which play host to some famous landmarks, such as antebellum-era houses framed by moss-covered oak trees. Head to Oglethorpe Square to see the Owens-Thomas House, an English Regency–style mansion completed in 1819 that now serves as a museum; tours here depart from the original carriage house and go past its charming English-style parterre garden.
Another relic of Savannah's past, River Street, curves for about a mile along the Savannah River's south bank. The cobblestone walkway is lined with 100-year-old cotton warehouses that have been converted into antique shops, brewpubs, and galleries. Explore the riverfront in style aboard one of the Old Town sightseeing trolleys or during a horse-drawn carriage tour. Though the street is tamer than it was a few decades ago⎯when it was overrun with muscle cars and rowdy sailors⎯there's still plenty of energy here, with a lively pub scene and views of large ships lumbering toward the dock.
