Savannah, much like my newest hometown-Boston, is proud of its Revolutionary war history. Monuments to its heroes, such as the Polish nobleman Pulaski, cover its squares and parks. In addition, as I walked along the riverfront on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, I was reminded of Savannah’s importance as a port city at almost every turn, by the Custom House, the Cotton Exchange and the Riverboats. This is a city made for walking; a cobblestoned waterfront that is a labyrinth of steps, walkways and pedestrian bridges, leafy squares with churches and historic buildings surrounding them and an assortment of restaurants and pubs to quench your hunger or thirst. And don’t forget a plethora of trolley buses(never seen quite so many) and walking tours including several describing haunted Savannah. Also, during my walks I found the childhood home of Flannery O’Connor and the home of Juliette Low, founder of the Girl Scouts.
