Amid the bustle and constant physical changes of Atlanta, it’s easy to lose touch with the world beyond the outermost suburban reaches — and to forget that, just three hours away, lies an otherworldly architectural treasure trove.
Come 2033, Savannah will be 300 years old, making it Georgia’s oldest city and still one of North America’s finest examples of pedestrian-friendly town planning. It boasts the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States. And for better or worse, it bears very little in common with its rambunctious, younger, bigger Peach State sibling.
For this installment of Visual Journeys, we road-tripped to the subtropical port city of horse-drawn carriages and gorgeous squares, tossed back a few to-go cups (when in Rome), slapped on the wide-angle lens, and set out to capture eclectic glimpses of Savannah’s built environment.
Clearly, Savannahians have something special going on here.
