Welcome To My City Blog: What's the ISH Savannah? - The Most Charming City in the South

Updated: Oct 25

“The Most Haunted City in America” “The Hostess City of the South” and “Turf Grass Capital of the World” are all responses to the simple Google search for nicknames of Savannah. If you’re like me, you are well aware that there is so much more to this beloved city. But what exactly makes Savannah so inspiring, breathtaking and marvelous?


I was not supposed to end up moving to Savannah, but that’s just what happened as soon as I laid my eyes upon this beautiful city. I still remember my first night in town, walking around on the cobblestone streets, feeling the warm summer air on my face, and carrying that sweet cold beverage in my hand. As I sat by the river, watching the orange, pink and purple hues of sunset paint the sky, I couldn’t help but allow myself to be caught up in the overwhelming feeling of home that suddenly surrounded me. Not knowing a soul (outside of the two friends that had recently moved here as well and were sitting by me) I chose to take a risk, and let the “Hostess City of the South” do what she does best, make you feel right at home.





The air in Savannah has a subtle hint of mystery, magic, and wonder that I’m certain does not exist in any other city. Whether it’s the Spanish moss hanging from the Live Oaks, and the way the fog and moonlight hit it just right, or the talented actors and actresses walking around in periodic dress, recanting stories of the old days, or the slight buzz you get from one too many to-go-cup beverages, there is just something different about Savannah. There are so many activities to do, restaurants to check off a bucket list, events to attend, rooftops to explore, if you ever find yourself bored here, it’s a very rare occasion indeed.


I am thrilled to bring you the very best Savannah has to offer, and I encourage you to follow along as we explore the charm, history, and the best places to wine and dine. Why do you find Savannah so intriguing? Feel free to leave a comment below and share your love for our amazing home! Cheers,

friends!
