Comments: The route has a 1B rating because of some of the cobblestone streets. You start at the Savannah History Museum and go into one of the most walker friendly cities in the USA, filled with colonial and American Civil War history. Savannah takes its historical heritage quite seriously, and you will pass marvelously restored homes dating back to the 1700's. Stroll through the beautiful park squares with their statuary. Relish the Spanish moss draped live oak trees. Relive the thrills of John Berendt's book and the movie, "Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil." Visit the unique shops and restaurants along River St. and in the Old City Market.The city provides a diverse collection of museums.
