The modern and well laid out Convention Center is located right on the river and features 100,000 square feet (9,290 square meters) of exhibit space. The building provides 50,000 square feet (4,645 square meters) of meeting space in13 meeting rooms, four executive board rooms, a 25,000-square-foot (2,322 square meter) ballroom, and a 367-seat auditorium.

Old Fort Jackson is Georgia’s oldest remaining fort and dates to 1808. Visitors can view Civil War displays, watch cannon firing, and take part in a rifle and heavy artillery demonstration. Must see is historic Fort Pulaski, built in 1829, on Cockspur Island. It is the site of an early Civil War battle where the resultant Union victory crippled the South’s war efforts

When strolling around the city be sure to notice the trees. Spanish moss hangs from much of Savannah’s oaks, giving the city a slightly spooky atmosphere and adding to its unique and haunted history.
