An overview of what is available In Savannah

Too Close to get in your car-ride the ferry across the river, get on a free shuttle and walk less than if you had driven your car and had to find a parking place!

Savannahs' Historic Squares

Battlefield Park - The site of the second bloodiest battle of the Revolutionary War, 2500 British troops held off 5500 French and American men in 1779.

The Pink House Restaurant
-The Bell of Savannah-serving southern food since 1928!  This is where it all started...You will be missing a major treat of Savannah if you don't have lunch here.

The Roundhouse Museum
, The largest and most complete Antebellum Railroad repair yard in existence with eleven locomotives on display covering the transition from Steam to Diesel, twelve specialty cars from an inspection car to a crane car, and four Cabooses!  All of the train equipment has been restored on site and is in working condition-even used for visitor rides-the Diesel engine will be giving rides the week of the convention!  In the tool shed of the Round House is the Savannah History Museum-don't let the use of the "tool shed" fool you-A tool shed for a locomotive yard is not quite something that could be bought from your local home improvement store!

Old Fort Jackson Started in 1808 on the site of an abandoned Revolutionary war fortress,  Old Fort Jackson has a long history of service, a healthy number of artifacts to see(including an1841 Mountain Howitzer, the largest such artillery piece in the country if you are lucky you'll get to see it in action-if you aren't-it'll be the last thing you ever see!) , and the archaeological site of the Ironclad CSS Georgia just off the bluff in the Savannah river.
