Four renovated blocks in the heart of the historic district really capture the authentic atmosphere and character of the city's old open marketplace. Known as City Market, this spot is also one of the most-visited attractions in Savannah, GA—featuring artists working in their lofts and exhibiting finished works for sale. You'll also find restaurants, open-air cafés, jazz clubs, and shops offering crafts, accessories, and gifts.
River Street and the Old Cotton Exchange were the center of commerce in 1887—when cotton was king. Iron bridges, cobblestone streets, and sidewalks tie together a unique multilevel collection of 19th-century buildings. Where there once stood old cotton warehouses, you'll now find a multitude of bars, restaurants, and shops.
This 26-acre park, starting at the south end of the historic district, is especially beautiful in spring when the flowering trees and azaleas are in full bloom. The large ornate fountain dates to 1858. Joggers and walkers head here to make the mile loop around the perimeter of the park. Forsyth Park is the pride of Savannah, and fortunately, located just a minute's walk from The Gastonian on Gaston Street and the Eliza Thompson House on Jones Street.
