Downtown Savannah real estate is unique. The historic homes in Savannah have character, and most of them have been renovated to combine historical architecture with modern conveniences. Historic downtown Savannah offers shops, restaurants, night clubs, a vibrant art scene, antique dealers and much more. Savannah is one of the best walking cities in the US.
James Oglethorpe designed Savannah around a grid of green squares, now parks with monuments and benches, flowers and huge, beautiful oak trees. Traffic slows down to go around the squares, so, over time, pedestrians have developed the right of way -- it's easy to walk through Savannah at a leisurely pace and never feel rushed or overwhelmed by traffic.
Homes in the downtown Savannah Historic District can be a little pricey, but there are plenty of affordable homes in the Victorian District or the Thomas Square Streetcar District, just minutes from downtown. I'll be writing more on my blog about downtown and waterfront developments.
