The Gastonian

Savannah, Georgia

Built in 1868, The Gastonian is an award-winning bed-and-breakfast conveniently located near Forsyth Park. 17 elegant guest rooms make up the inn, all with working fireplaces. Guests are treated to personalized breakfast menus and complimentary nighttime cordials and sweets; 800/322-6603.

Eat: Elizabeth on 37th, located in an old Victorian mansion, is a culinary institution. For a more casual dining experience, head to The Shrimp Factory on River Street for seafood bisque and peel-your-own shrimp. After dinner, be sure to pay a visit to Savannah Candy Kitchen for sweet pecan pralines.

Do: Savannah has been called the most haunted city in America, so take a nighttime tour to learn about the hauntings with Old Savannah Tours. Or, if you prefer something less frightening, opt for a tour with Old Town Trolley. Savannah is home to SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). Check out one of its galleries, or buy creative work at shopSCAD.
