Description

Savannah, Georgia, has experienced phenomenal popularity ever since the 1994 publication of John Berendt's best-selling book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The Gothic Savannah weekend tour will give you a chance to survey Savannah's history and get a glimpse of what makes this city so distinctive. The tour centers on Savannah's Historic District, an area bordered by the Savannah River on the north, West Gaston Street on the south, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and Broad Street on the west and east respectively. The Historic District is home to many fine inns, including the pricey but elegant Gastonian, at 220 East Gaston Street (912-232-2869); the East Bay Inn, at 225 East Bay Street (800-500-1225); and the Ballastone Inn, at 14 East Oglethorpe Avenue (800-822-4553). The city planners laid Savannah out in a rigid grid of bolt-straight streets broken only by scenic squares. The layout makes finding things easy, but negotiating squares by car can be pretty challenging.
