The Savannah Walks leads newcomers and locals alike through the shadowy, moss-laden squares of Savannah’s historic colonial district during informative guided tours. Each outing provides a unique twist on the city and its unmistakable charm, covering topics such as Savannah during the Civil War, historic fine homes, majestic gates and gardens, and local pubs. Tour guides all boast scholastic bona fides, including among them three published authors and three college professors. The Savannah Walks easily accommodates school groups, civic organizations, corporations, celebrities, and animals standing on each other's shoulders under an overcoat.
Using a wide selection of hard-to-find, upscale beauty products, the bartenders at See Jane's beauty bar will conjure an apothecary concoction suited to your face's type and slather it onto your flesh-emoticon while you bliss out amid the spa's laid-back, chic atmosphere. Battered bods, meanwhile, can de-stress while a licensed massage therapist untorques tension and melts muscle butter with a luxuriant massage tailored to your aches, pains, and dorsal fins.
At The Clothing Warehouse, patrons peruse a treasure trove of authentic vintage clothing dating back to the 1940s.

Step into a pair of cowboy boots ($48.95+) to gain the respect of nearby horses or don a soft vintage T-shirt ($12.95–$22.95) to send a stern message that at least one person still remembers The Snorks. Patrons can also opt to passive-aggressively ignore the sun with a pair of sunglasses ($14.95), available in more than 100 light-lessening varieties.
The Savannah Shoe Co. ensconces elegant lady feet in bright new clogs built to handle any social gathering or off-terrain pheasant hunt.
