Savannah, Georgia / Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
Savannah is a Southern Belle – gracious and welcoming, beautiful and refined. This spectacular beauty is due to the city's plotted plan of 21 squares spaced throughout the city, shaded by live oaks dripping with Spanish moss, and lined with exquisite residential architecture – all resulting in the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States. This stunning beauty may also have been the reason that Sherman didn't destroy the city during the ending days of the Civil War.
