Savannah , the historic riverside birthplace of Georgia, was settled in 1733 by British colonists led by General James Oglethorpe and Colonel William Bull. In 1864 when General William Tecumseh Sherman marched in, the mayor of Savannah gave Sherman's men run of the city in exchange for leaving it untouched. As a result, Savannah is one of the few major cities in the South with antebellum charm and architecture remaining intact. Savannah has one of the largest historic districts in the country.

Each year Savannah attracts millions of visitors, who enjoy the city's architecture and historic buildings.  Savannah was the host city for the sailing competitions during the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta.
