Stay in One of Luxury Living Savannah's Historic Mansions and See Why Savannah in the Summer Is One of America's Best-Kept Travel Secrets

Savannah's History and Haunts Make It One of the Most Desirable Places to Visit This Summer and Also One of the Most Affordable With Luxury Living Savannah's Special Savings Offers

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) - Steeped in history and haunted folklore, blessed with the natural beauty of azalea-filled parks, and graced by the southern charm and hospitality of its local residents, Savannah in the summer may be one of the best-kept travel secrets in America.

Many travelers say Savannah's summertime sultriness is part of what makes them repeat visitors to the city. The warm summer air, they say, gives vacationers an excuse to spend the afternoon on the porch of an 1800s mansion, quenching their thirsts with an icy glass of sweet tea or a quintessential southern Mint Julep. The heat is what draws people to spend time at Johnson Square, the historic River Street, or Tybee Island where coastal breezes are legendary. And summertime is what gives a couple on a romantic getaway an excuse to take a long, leisurely stroll under 300-year-old towering, moss-covered ancient oak and magnolia trees that shade Savannah's cobblestone streets. Some people even believe Savannah's warm air slows time down, blanketing the city with a calmness that city-dwelling travelers come to appreciate.

While travelers enjoy Savannah's summertime serenity, for those looking for a little more action, Savannah is also steeped in haunted tales that come to life during one of the city's many ghost tours. As the tours explain, it is believed that Georgia's oldest city is filled with ghosts from its past as battlegrounds for the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. And that might not be far from the truth. Savannah is literally built on its dead. Cemeteries were erected on the edges of the city, and as the city grew, houses and businesses were constructed on the former burial sites. Some of Savannah's most iconic haunted places include the Marshall House, which served as a hospital during a yellow fever epidemic and during the Civil War, and the Mercer House, which gained notoriety in the film "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" and is said to be haunted by antique dealer Jim Williams.
