If you love Savannah, you should definitely check it out. Everyone I know who isn't from there loves visiting, and I admittedly have a somewhat different view of the city than most do

I definitely need to plan to go. I've heard Charleston is basically a cleaner Savannah. To be honest, I'm not sure how I feel about that. One of the things I love about Savannah is that little bit of grimy swampiness it has. Either way, there's only one way to find out - visit! Maybe we'll make a long weekend of it once we get settled after the move.

I've heard great things about Savannah, I'd like to check it out someday.
Savannah is awesome. Definitely worth doing at least once. Everyone I know who loves Charleston also loves Savannah, even if they prefer one or the other.
