What Bert Has To Say About Savannah Metro Area

Savannah is a beautiful coastal city known for its well-preserved historic core and laid-back Southern lifestyle. Its appeal was so strong that Gen. William T. Sherman spared the city from Civil War destruction in 1864. Today the Southern charm continues to radiate from old mansions, tree-shaded cobblestone streets and restored historic areas like the City Market. However, the quality and appeal diminish further inland and away from the historic city center.
