Exploring the Darling of the South

February 17th, 2023

There is nothing more enchanting than cobblestone roads lined with old trees draped in Spanish moss. With spring right around the corner, everyone will be wandering the beautiful streets, soaking in the sunshine. A thriving social hub, downtown offers premier dining, entertainment, and shopping. Not to mention, it is the perfect place to bring your little belles and beaus for a family escape.

Imagine Savannah, Georgia, often referred to as “The Darling of the South” in your backyard. With everything you could ever want within reach, it’s no wonder why so many people who were once visitors now call the area home.

Our Inside Look At Experiencing Downtown Savannah

Take it from a local, these are our favorite things to do in Savannah. With the city close enough to where it feels like it is in our community’s backyard, here’s how you can experience downtown like a Savannah Quarters resident.

Discover River Street

The city’s rich arts culture thrives along the riverfront. Shop away at the weekly River Street Marketplace, or discover your inner kid at River Street Sweets, Savannah’s best candy store for more than 16 years! River Street is your go-to stretch for world-class seafood, historic charm, and breathtaking scenery. Friendly warning though, River Street is one of the most haunted areas of Savannah!

Dine Al Fresco

From dinners on beautiful second-floor balconies to serene porch brunches, experience a new level of al fresco dining. Discover a premier food scene, all with the backdrop of a city soaked in historic charm. Insider tip — our residents love dining at the Desoto Hotel!

Historic Home Tours

Known for its history, Savannah is one of the oldest cities along the east coast. Get swept up in the neoclassical style of the Owens-Thomas House and Slave Quarters or stand beneath the impressive columns of the Harper Fowlkes House. Become fascinated with our city’s historic architecture. And why stop there? Here are 11 more historic homes open for you to visit!
