Part of the appeal of The Ford Field & River Club is its proximity to some of the best cities, landmarks, and natural attractions that the South has to offer. One of these is the quintessential Southern city of Savannah, Georgia, just a 30-minute drive from The Ford. And it’s just claimed the number-two spot on Southern Living’s “The South’s Best Cities 2022” list.
“Stroll through Savannah, and it will become one of your favorite Southern cities too,” says the article. And for those who’ve spent even a short amount of time in this locale, this statement couldn’t ring any truer. Savannah is inarguably a Southern treasure—filled with rich history, world-class eateries, stunning natural beauty, and vibrant culture.
“The lush squares and beautiful architecture make it a favorite for weekend trips,” the article continues. “Start on the riverfront for pralines from historic sweet shops and dinner with waterfront views, and then head into the walkable districts farther inland.”
In addition to the overall city rating, Southern Living recognized some of Savannah’s finest: Wiley’s Championship BBQ was named “The Best BBQ in Georgia,” while Back in the Day Bakery earned the number-one spot on the “South’s Best Bakeries” list.
