Savannah’s culture and electricity are a short drive from Ford. Founded in 1733, Savannah is one of America's favorite destinations. Today, the city attracts nearly seven million visitors every year. Located in the heart of the Georgia Low Country, Savannah is a city of rare natural beauty. A city of azaleas in bloom and stately oaks draped with Spanish moss. These landscapes have been lovingly enhanced by two centuries of manmade splendor, from distinctive park-like squares and cobblestone streets to the magnificent architecture of storied antebellum homes and churches.
The city's dramatic architecture mingles with fashionable downtown boutiques, microbreweries and art galleries. James Beard-worthy restaurants, unique attractions and a vibrant nightlife add another dimension to this charming southern city. Such is the beauty of Savannah that General Sherman spared the city the torch during his “March to the Sea” and, instead, presented it as a Christmas gift to an enthusiastic President Abraham Lincoln.
We relish our connections to Savannah life. Ford members serve on the boards of many of Savannah’s most important institutions, take classes at the Savannah College of Art and Design, and delight in the Savannah Music, Film and Book festivals. And no visit from friends or family is complete without a stroll about Savannah’s historic squares and dinner on the riverfront. The city offers access to advanced medical care and the Savannah International Airport, only 20 minutes from Ford.
