Just back from a brief trip to Savannah to celebrate the end of exams--boy, that place would be a good place to start or move a law school! Thanks to a recommendation by Fernando Teson (my friend and colleague), my wife and I arrived in time for dinner at the delicious and old-school Savannah kitchen of Elizabeth on 37th St. We had trouble getting a place in town on short notice for Saturday night, but we stayed the next night at the beautiful and relatively new Mansion on Forsyth Park, which adequately gives a flavor of the "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" aura for which Savannah has become famous in recent years. For fun, we had the good fortune of arriving in time for a doggy carnival in Forsyth Park, but I also highly recommend walking along City Market and enjoying scrumptious tapas and live jazz at a Barnard St. basement restaurant called Jazz'd. We saw Dave's True Story perform there two nights ago. Also be sure to take one of the silly trolley tours just to get a sense of the city and when you're tired, grab a coffee and a paper at the Gallery Espresso. Tybee Island's beaches are nearby and worth a visit if the weather is cooperating. Sadly, we got rained out when we went yesterday so we came home so I could finish grading exams...the end (of grading) is near I hope.

I'm with you, Dan. Savannah is great. My grandparents lived there for about 15 years, and I visited often. And, I proposed to my wife there.
