Southern charm aside, Savannah, GA, has something that people crave: Paula Deen. And if her comfort food and world-famous restaurant alone don't entice you, the city's downtown has much more in store. It's gorgeous, steeped in history, buffered by the beautiful Forsyth Park and perfectly placed by the Savannah River. River Street is a popular downtown destination, lined with restaurants, galleries and boutiques. Other restaurants in Savannah help round out the area's food scene.
