Savannah Art Museums -Home to a permanent collection of 18th- to 20th-century American and European art, the Telfair Museums include two National Historic Landmarks — the Telfair Academy and the Owens-Thomas House and Slave Quarters — and the starkly modern Jepson Center, controversially designed by architect Moshe Safdie. The Owens-Thomas House is one of the finest examples of English Regency architecture in America.  The prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), one of the nation’s premier art schools, boasts a big footprint in this small town.  Most are free and offer wheelchair access.

Savannah's Historic Squares - Just a few blocks from The Brice Hotel are 22 squares in Savannah that today provide locals and visitors alike with a little greenery amid all the businesses and historic houses.  At one time there were 24 historic squares, but two were lost due to city development while others, such as Ellis Square, were redesigned and made even more appealing. These squares are surrounded by some charming churches, historic homes, enchanting inns and museums and are all shaded by huge live oak trees.  For details, visit Welcome to Savannah/Historic Squares...
