Across the Miles
Jack McCall

Savannah, Ga., has become one of my favorite Southern cities. Fortunately, it is also a favorite convention city as well. For that reason, I get to visit Savannah quite often on speaking assignments. On a few occasions, clients have put me up in the Westin Hotel and Convention Center located across the river. But I most often stay in a hotel right on the riverfront.

It is a special treat for me to visit the Savannah riverfront. The pace there is leisurely and the food is terrific.

I was back in Savannah not long ago. On this trip, I stayed at the Hilton Desoto Hotel in the downtown area. When I arrived there I found the hotel to be over a mile from the riverfront. As good fortune would have it, the weather was ideal. The first evening found me taking a leisurely walk to my favorite restaurant. Little did I know I would be introduced to a part of Savannah that heretofore I had never seen.
