lies about seven miles south of downtown Savannah,
just far enough to give the neighborhood a peaceful quality while still being within an easy 20-minute drive of all the action. Residents enjoy the quiet of the suburbs by strolling along the tree-lined streets or from the comfort of their rental home.
The Savannah Botanical Gardens sits on the east side of the neighborhood, a great destination for families. The grounds burst with a variety of gardens and water features, even containing a children's garden for youngsters interested in nature. Adults can also enjoy a little alone time at the Bacon Park Golf Course, minutes from the neighborhood.
Locals don't just play in the great outdoors. They often lounge around at Sweet Potatoes, a restaurant that features all their favorite Southern foods, from corn pudding and lemon collard greens to fried catfish and peach-glazed chicken. A stop at nearby Byrd Cookie Company tops off the day.
