Squares of Savannah

Savannah, Georgia is known for its historic city squares, which were laid out in the city’s original plan by James Oglethorpe in 1733 . The squares are located throughout the city and are a central feature of the city’s historic district. There are a total of 22 squares in Savannah, each with its own unique history and character. Some of the most well-known squares include Johnson Square, Chippewa Square, Forsyth Park and Wright Square. Each square is surrounded by historic buildings, many of which have been restored and are now home to shops, restaurants, and other businesses. The squares are popular with tourists and locals alike, and are often used as venues for events and festivals.

Tybee Island is the local beach area for Savannah and is located just 20 minutes from the historic district.  The island is known for its miles of sandy beaches, as well as its historic lighthouse and fort.

The weather in the spring is typically warm with average Atlantic Ocean temps in the 60’s…which is a bit chilly but tolerable. 

The lighthouse, which was first built in 1736 and rebuilt in 1742 and again in 1867, is a popular tourist attraction. Visitors can climb the 178 steps to the top of the lighthouse for a panoramic view of the island and the surrounding area. The Tybee Island Light Station and Museum, located nearby, offers exhibits on the history of the lighthouse and the island.

Another popular attraction on Tybee Island is Fort Screven, a historic coastal defense fort built in the late 19th and early 20th century. Visitors can explore the fort’s historic gun batteries and learn about its role in defending the coast during World War II.

In addition to its beaches and historic sites, Tybee Island offers a variety of outdoor activities, such as fishing, boating, and bird watching. There are also a number of shops, restaurants, and bars on the island, making it a popular destination for both tourists and residents.
