Spotlight on Savannah: Get to Know the Neighborhood

By Jessica Hernandez

Would you like to spend the last few days of summer under the canopy of Savannah's grand oak trees? We invite you to register to join State Foresters for the NASF annual meeting September 19-22.

Earlier this month we wrote about the history and layout of the city. This week we're focused on the multitude of activities available to visitors of this spectacular southern city.

The NASF Annual Meeting will be held at the Hilton Savannah DeSoto Hotel located in one of the country’s largest hiistoric landmark districts. The hotel is situated in the heart of Savannah’s historic shopping, dining and theater district, and just a short walk to the riverfront and City Market.

There are a variety of activities that attendees can take advantage of during meeting downtime! A great option for families and kids is to hop on the Savannah Old Town Trolley Tour where you will see the city’s historic marketplaces, landmarks, gardens, and some of the most haunted streets in America. Couples can take advantage of a romantic candlelit dinner cruise and tour of the Port of Savannah over on River Street.

For art enthusiasts, Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) is also located in the Savannah Historic District. SCAD is the leading university for art and design in the country. Attendees can explore the beautiful art galleries and the SCAD Museum's contemporary art and exhibitions.
