Most noted for diverse architecture, historic squares, a humid climate, and true Southern hospitality, Savannah remains as engaging and lovely today as it was when Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman offered the city to Pres. Abraham Lincoln as a Christmas present—sparing Savannah from destruction during Sherman's historic 1864 March to the Sea. TodaySavannah is a thriving metropolitan city that hosts more than 6 million visitors annually and is home to the Savannah College of Art and Design, the nation's fastest growing art school.
