Art plays a vital role in the community, as it’s home to the acclaimed Savannah College of Art and Design. Accommodations range from the Victorian Romanesque-style Mansion on Forsyth Park to quaint inns, all within walking distance of the historic district. And though the town is best explored on foot, no visit is complete without the clip-clop cadence of a horse-drawn carriage ride.
Four fabulous floors of timeworn treasures await at Alex Raskin Antiques. Located in the Noble Hardee Mansion, the shop offers everything from period furniture to architectural fragments and more. At Maison de Macarons, owners Amy Shippy and Laura Hale have built a loyal following with their irresistible cookies that start with silky-soft almond flour and end with a smile.
