Savannah is two hours from Charleston, perfect for a weekend getaway. The two cities are strikingly similar in a lot of ways — history, architecture, landscape, Southern sensibilities — and really different, too. The differences keep me coming back. Funky, affordable shopping, stylish restaurants and bakeries, and a youthful art scene really set the city apart.

More Savannah musts:
* ShopSCAD for art from future Picassos.
* Paris Market & Brocante for the most beautiful store you'll ever see in your life.
* Clary's Cafe for greasy brunch.
* Bonaventure Cemetery for ghosthunting.
* Twilight Visions: Surrealism, Photography and Paris exhibit at the Jepson Center.
