I haven't been there since 1994, but yeah the historic district with the Squares was almost an ideal city. If it's still the same, you can walk from square to square with a drink, enjoying the shade and looking at the architecture and statues. I've never met anyone who's been to Savannah who didn't like it. I've never been to the rest of the city but the parts I saw downtown were great, and the people totally awesome. Georgia is a lot of things, and IMO Savannah is the best of all of it combined into one downtown area. When we went there during St. Paddy's Day, as our ship was pulling up to the pier the local rock station that was DJ'ing the goings-on played "In the Navy" for us. Thanks Savannah. We got a good laugh out of it. Georgia really does have a lot of hot women, and many peaches gather in Savannah. Wear sunglasses if the missus gets jelly.
Can anybody from the area tell me why they cut these geometric patterns in the swamp? It looks man-made and some of them are called canals, but canals to where? It seems like this would promote salt-water incursion into the swamp, isn't that bad? And why would they take equipment out there to do it, or do they use a barge? What's this about?
