If you stroll down Bull Street, you come across five lovely and historic squares. Take a rest and sit in the shade. Read the plaques and learn Savanah history. Just enjoy your day.

A gorgeous park that makes you feel like you are in Savannah. Spanish moss, lush green plants, brick sidewalks, monument and park benches - all perfect.

This square was great to visit this February with colorful flowering trees. Some of the blooms were fantastic smelling. One of the better squares in the city.

The first white burial ground in Savannah so you know it's old and quite possible haunted. The rumor is that all the buildings and roadways are haunted because they are built on the dead!! Creepy, right? This is a stop on the Savannah Ghost Tours...More
