Savannah, Georgia is one of my favorite spots in the South East. I love the way that tradition and cutting-edge creativity both prosper there. It seems to me that most cities have a hard time finding the balance that Savannah enjoys. Many cities either become so focused moving forward that they forgetting their history or they do the opposite and hold onto history so tightly that they dig their heels in the ground and won't allow creativity and change to flourish.
With a nickname like "The Hostess City of the South" you know hospitality will not be lacking in Savannah. To experience the graces of Savannah's hospitality, I'd recommend staying at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. This 1888 mansion has been carefully restored and sits across from the beautiful Savannah landmark, Forsyth Park. The hotel's design reflects the character of Savannah's history in the building's classic exterior and the city's thriving creative scene in it's modern interior.
The Mansion on Forsyth Park is also situated in the perfect location to venture out and explore all the wonder Savannah has to offer. The possibilities are endless... from meandering through the surrounding historic district to discovering the nearby art galleries. Savannah is also the home to the Savannah College of Art and Design, which is a hub of the Southern art scene. The school has a great shop, ShopSCAD, which features art by SCAD's students. ShopSCAD is also in walking distance from the hotel and sits next to several other neat shops and eateries. -mrs.h
