THE HAPPY WANDERERS
This historic downtown Savannah walk was a 1998 "Top Ten" walk. Trail is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) in length and is rated 1+, moderately easy. Route is through Savannah's historic district. All sidewalks are shaded with live oak trees. Accessible to wheelchairs and strollers with difficulty -- cobblestones will present a challenge in the riverfront area. Restrooms at Visitor Center and along route. Water at start/finish.
A Walk Civil War Sites Event
Savannah, the end of the Georgia line of march, was occupied after the reduction of Fort McAllister, in time for Sherman to offer the city to Lincoln as a Christmas gift. There is a Confederate Memorial, a bronze figure of a Confederate soldier, in Forsyth Park (Gaston Street to Park Avenue).
Hand-held leashed pets welcome except inside buildings. Service animals allowed everywhere, of course. Please be prepared to meet the needs of your companion.
