user picture devon: I'm from Georgia. I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your time here! It really is a beautiful place, but a good deal of it is still small towns and family owned farms. apr 15 2012
user picture Bliss: Oh no! When I said awkward and boring I was mostly referring to visiting my grandpa while there. I don't have a good relationship with him and his house was always boring when I was a kid! I have always wanted to spend more time in Georgia now as an adult, especially Savannah!
user picture Bliss: There, I edited it :)
user picture devon: Don't worry, I wasn't offended! & Ahhh, Savannah's not as great as the tourists make it out to be. I mean, the downtown is truly beautiful, especially at night. It's just that it has a high crime rate and much of Savannah isn't what it used to be. I lived there when I was younger, but after we were robbed the THIRD time, mom moved us out to a small town about forty five minutes away. Don't let this discourage you from visiting, though! :)
