River Street In Savannah, Georgia

Crossing The Bridge To Savannah, GA So we spent a week in the Savannah area.  Savannah, GA sits right on the Savannah River, a major river in the southeastern United States.  The river separates Georgia from South Carolina and made Savannah a strategic port city for the American Revolution and Civil War days to the industrial center and important Atlantic seaport it is today. Savannah was established in 1733 and served as the colonial capital of the Province of Georgia, one of the southern colonies in British America.  It later became the first state capital of Georgia.
