Welcome to Savannah, GA

Savannah, Georgia's oldest city, began its modern history on February 12, 1733, when General James Oglethorpe and 120 colonists arrived at Yamacraw Bluff on the Savannah River to form the last British colony in the New World. For a century and a half the city flourished as a bustling port, serving as a hub of import and export that connected Georgia to the rest of the world. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.
