Visit Savannah’s Squares – Part 1

March 21, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Savannah's SquaresSavannah, Georgia is known for its lush beauty with moss-draped live oaks, palmetto, and magnolia ornamenting streets and squares across the city. Savannah’s Squares play an important role in the historic city’s enduring reputation for elegance – but where are they and why are they there?

Savannah was initially laid out in 1733 on a grid of four “wards” – open squares surrounded by eight blocks of mixed residential, commercial, and civic use buildings. These central, open squares were originally meant as space for military exercises, very similar to military camps, which makes sense as it was all part of the “Oglethorpe Plan,” as proposed by … General James Oglethorpe.

Savannah’s City Market

February 16, 2012 by Robbie Bell

Three hundred years ago, fisherman, farmers, and merchants brought their produce and wares to Savannah’s City Market. It was the center of commerce; people came daily to trade goods and information. In many ways, it was the heart of Savannah.

Savannah City Market

Walk to the City Market from any of our Savannah Vacation Homes.

Two of the original market buildings were lost to fire prior to the 1850s, and a third was torn down after the Civil War. After two hundred years of service, yet another grand old market building was destroyed in 1954–this one lost to a wrecking ball. Yet the legacy of the Savannah City Market lived on.

The historic buildings that comprise today’s City Market are spread across four blocks in Savannah Historic Downtown District. Once again, the Savannah City Market provides a place to congregate, exchange news, and do business. Locals and visitors are drawn to this open pedestrian area filled with shops, art galleries, restaurants, and live entertainment.

Dine at Tapas By Anna, Vinnie Van Go-Go’s, or the Cafe at City Market. Enjoy the art at Jim Pennington Fine Art, the A.T. Hun Gallery, and the Stephen Kasun Gallery. Shop for clothes, sweets, cigars and books. The City Market has it all.

It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the City Market from our Savannah Vacation Rentals on Broughton Street, and about 10 minutes to walk there from our Savannah Vacation Home on West Liberty Street. Guests take advantage of the close proximity to visit it frequently for food, art, shopping, and to feel the pulse of Savannah.
