Savannah is not New York, nor is it Atlanta -- heck, it's not even Charlotte -- so its important to remember that things move a lot slower here, and its bad taste to get irritated about little things. Don't get distressed if the person in front of you at a stoplight doesn't floor the gas as soon as it turns green, or if the old lady in front of you in line at the bakery takes her sweet time getting exact change out of her little coin purse. Be courteous, polite, and mannerly, and Savannah will treat you in the same fashion. Oh, and it is very poor Savannahquette (it's like etiquette, only in Savannah -- I'm sure you understood) to EVER use ANY kind of profanity in public, in private conversations or otherwise. You'll get nasty looks.

I have never actually ventured into the South, but after my trip to Savannah, I can tell you that Southern hospitality is no joke. Our trip was pleasant from the cab driver that took us from the airport to our hotel, all the way to the cab ride home. Everyone in Savannah seems to be pleasant and willing to help you out should you need help.

The American South has a tradition of great writers from Faulkner to Styron to Welty. Flannery O'Connor is one of the most important of all. Reading her stories gives you a sometimes odd glimpse into life in the South. Her childhood home is in Savannah on E. Charlton St.

Remember that you are in Savannah Georgia so service can be slow. People in Savannah are very friendly and warm so do not let the slowness irritate you, remember you are on vacation. People in Savannah are also well mannered and they greet you at a propper manner so you should greet them back. One of the mistakes made by many travelers is to compare Savannah with Atlanta, remember both cities have their own character and ambition.

THERE IS A SQUARE WITH OPEN SPACE WHERE FOLKS RELAX WITH A DRINK FROM ONE OF THE NEARBY PUBS OR CAFES. BTW..SO LONG AS YOUR DRINK IS IN A PAPER CUP YOU CAN DRINK ON THE STREET! BACK TO THE SQUARE. WE SAT FOR QUITE A WHILE LAUGHING AT THE KIDS WHO COME TO THESE FOUNTAINS..OFTEN DASHING IN AND OUT TRYING NOT TO GET WET. THE SQUIRTS ARE INTERMITTENT AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN ANOTHER ONE IS GOING TO BURST UP INTO YOUR FACE. LIKE A DANCE, EVERYONE DASHES BACK AND FORTH UNTIL THEY FINALLLY DON'T CARE HOW WET THEY GET AND PROCEED TO PLAY ALL SORTS OF SILLY GAMES WITH THE SQUIRTING WATER.
