From what I've seen and heard, I believe it. To me, Savannah is sort of a cleaner New Orleans, so I guess that would mean it's somewhere between New Orleans and Charleston.

Summer can be next-level uncomfortable, especially if you're not used to heat and humidity, but fall and spring are great. Winter isn't too bad, either, though it can get just chilly enough to kind of kill the fun of walking down the river and such.
Does "Southern food" rule out seafood and lowcountry stuff? You can eat really well in Savannah and avoid the traditional/well-known Southern fare without too much effort.
I could be talked into a meet-up.
I haven't been to Savannah in about 1.5 years, which been the longest stretch I've gone without a visit in almost a decade.
