My Birthday In Savannah

Spanish moss, humidity, cobblestone streets, and southern hospitality are only a few ways to describe Savannah, which happens to be the oldest city in Georgia. It's also the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts, and fictional writer Flannery O'Connor.  It's home to many historical buildings and the Toronto Sun ranked Leopold's Ice-Cream number 5 in the world.
