9 Beautiful Photo Spots in Savannah that You Don’t Want to Miss

In my opinion, Savannah, Georgia is one of the most beautiful southern cities in the U.S. It’s been listed as one of the prettiest cities in the U.S. for many, many years. This is why it’s no surprise how you’ll find some incredibly beautiful photo spots in Savannah.

I might be biased because the charming city of Savannah is one of my favorite places. However, I’m sure many of you also find it fascinating and oh, so pretty!

The last time I was here I was immersed in the spookiness of the ghost tours and haunted houses of Savannah. Which, in all honesty, they don’t look haunted at all.

The beauty of these historic houses is absolute madness, along with many other picturesque spots like the ones on this list.

Chippewa Square is one of the most known squares in Savannah. Mostly, because this is the place where the famous ‘bench’ scene from the movie Forest Gump took place.

And although the bench is no longer here, it’s still one of those squares around the city that you certainly don’t want to miss.

📷 Behind the Shot: This picture I took from Savannah’s Jones Street, ‘Savannah, My Love‘ was the 2018 first-place winner from the Historic Savannah Foundation’s photo contest.

Commonly known as Savannah’s most beautiful street, Jones Street has also been named one of the most beautiful streets in America.

For me, Jones Street easily describes just how perfectly beautiful Savannah is! It’s picturesque in many ways.

From the brick houses to the Spanish moss trees, to every little detail that is all so Savannah!

8. Forsyth Park

Not to mention that this fountain in Forsyth Park, installed back in 1858, is also the most famous in Savannah.
