Oprah Winfrey’s lifestyle brand Oprah Daily compiled a list of winter 2022′s best getaway vacation spots, and Georgia was on their minds. Savannah earned the honorable first mention on the website’s “25 of the Best Winter Getaways to Start Planning Now” article, and it was all thanks to the city’s Southern charm.

“If you’re looking for a place with no shortage of history, beauty, and Southern charm, you won’t do better than Savannah,” Oprah Daily’s editors said in their report.

An iconic Georgia hotspot, the city is known in equal parts for the charming restaurants, bars and boutiques found on the legendary River Street and for being one of the country’s most haunted towns. It’s a place full to the brim with personality.

“If you’re in town on a Saturday, walk over to Forsyth Park, a gorgeous 30-acre expanse, where you’ll find Forsyth Farmers’ Market—along with, ancient, moss-draped oak trees and lots of old mansions,” the editors said in their report. “From there, make your way to The Olde Pinke House for lunch (don’t skip the grits!), followed by a visit to the Telfair Museum, the oldest public art museum in the Southeast. After, take a scenic stroll along Savannah’s famous River Street, leaving plenty of time for admiring the cobblestone streets and historic buildings, as well as stopping in the delightful stores.”

From the food to the views to the nightlife to the shopping, Savannah is a place unlike any other in Georgia — a state with warm enough climate to escape the cold winter weather. Consider giving Georgia’s most haunted town a visit for a winter vacation you won’t soon forget.
