Savannah is a beautiful city that dates back to 1733. Savannah is named for the Savannah River, which most likely derives from Shawnee, who were Native American people who migrated to the river in the 1680’s. Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia and is the county seat for Chatham County. In 1733, the city of Savannah became the colonial capital of the Province of Georgia, later becoming the first state capital of Georgia. Savannah was a very strategic port city during the American Revolution and during the Civil War. At the time of the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War, Savannah had become the southernmost commercial point of the thirteen colonies. Savannah is now Georgia’s fifth-largest city and third largest metropolitan area in the state.
Savannah is a beautiful city that has something to offer for everyone. Savannah attracts millions of people each year, some to enjoy the architecture and others to enjoy the history or the atmosphere. Savannah is home to one of the largest gatherings of Girl Scouts, because the Girl Scouts of the United States of America founder was born and raised in Savannah, Juliette Gordon Low.

Millions of people visit Savannah each year for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The town hosts a parade which incorporates the historic areas as well as the renovated downtown area.
Savannah lies on the Savannah River, approximately 20 miles upriver from the Atlantic Ocean. The city has a total area of 108 square miles, with 103 miles being land and 5 square miles being water. Savannah is the largest port in the state of Georgia and it is also located near the U.S. Intercostal Waterway.
