Living in Savannah
Gorgeous and welcoming, Savannah is lovely to behold and even lovelier to live in. The lifeblood of this city, founded in 1733, is the Savannah River, flowing around and through the entire metropolis. And its heart? That’s Savannah’s legendary urban planning, created by town founder James Oglethorpe. A visionary town planner, Oglethorpe incorporated parks and gardens throughout, with pedestrian-scaled streets. Replicable and non-hierarchical, Savannah’s town plan remained the guiding light for the city’s new developments through the twentieth century. As a result, Savannah is a place that feels utterly livable, whether you’re relaxing on the beach, drinking and strolling on River Street, or just enjoying a delicious seafood meal, surrounded by moss-covered oak trees.
