Popularized by Berendt's novel, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” Savannah is a fascinating tapestry of history and hospitality. A Colonial-era planned city, its charming grid of garden park squares form the heart of one of the largest Historic Districts in the country. It's also features the second largest St. Patrick's Day celebration in the US–second only to Chicago. Savannah features walking tours, buggy tours, fine and fun dining and easy access to Lowcountry beaches, rivers and marshes. The Telfair Museum and Savannah College of Art and Design provide culture and energy to the arts scene.
