Spring in Savannah is quintisentially the most beautiful time of year to see the Hostess City of the South. Azaleas line every street and walkway. Fresh leaves can be spotted in between the dripping Spanish moss. The air has warmed up but gentle breezes keep the Southern humidity - and bugs - at bay.
This historic city is buzzing with activity (and pollen), which are both quieted by the occasional rain storm. Photographers love spring in Savannah because they say the light is gentler and photographing the architecture, color and culture is effortless.
Historically the Girl Scouts celebrate another year in existance, now into the three digits in length. And while the sport-loving world's attention will be focused a few hours up the road on the Masters golf tournament held in Augusta, Georgia, musicians, artists and bird watchers will focus on Savannah as the place to be.
Random fact: Did you know that the Savannah River, which runs from it's mouth at Tybee Island just outside of Savannah, all the way up north into North Carolina, is Georgia's eastide border with South Carolina? It is such an important river that it was used as a basis for 'modern' settlements up and down the state since the 1700s for it's convenience in transporting goods via water. In fact, the Augusta National Golf Club which hosts the world-famous Master's golf tournanment each year, was originally a major plant nursery which relied on the river for water and supplies. Here is the history of the famous
"Fruitland Nurseries" now known as Augusta National. Find out how all of those trees and azalea bushes got there!
