Ah, Savannah - we took a tour there back in March and learned that all those small green spaces were for a purpose. The entire town was laid out as a chckerboard, with housing "squares" alternating with greenery "squares" to reduce the chances of a fire destroying the entire town.

We are heading there in '16 and will be looking at this area in a new way. This is the first time that I've heard the story about the alternating greenery squares. Not sure if that town plan was initiated before or after Gen. Sherman's scorched earth campaign in the south...but it makes sense. Many other towns (e.g., Chicago, San Francisco, etc.) could have saved many assets had their city planners adopted that philosophy. Sorry...didn't mean to hijack the thread. This is just a darned interesting bit of trivia. Thanks Alan.

Good results--it really is a cute town. But the inauthenticity takes some of the gloss off for me.

Prettiest village.....Grafton, VT. Green Mountains covered in snow, country inn, museums, galleries, white church steeple, Grafton Village Cheese and Wine Shop, quiet, uncrowded, simple but beautiful. Looks like a postcard.

I agree with John and Honda. I really like both Asheville and Mateo NC.

We learned that bit of trivia while on a tour of the town - riding in a hearse!



The driver was a great guide - had lots of stories to tell as he drove us around. We were there during St Patrick's Day and found out that Savannah turns that into a week-long party! For a great blue cheese burger try a place called the Cotton Exchange down on the river - great food!

I agree. Savannah is a very beautiful town as well as St. Augustine, Fl.
