Staying There: The historic city centers of Savannah, Charleston, and Williamsburg are the ideal places to spend your holiday. By staying "downtown" you are within minutes of these city's historic mansions, restaurants and nightlife. We used to good advantage the lodging information and ratings provided provided by the excellent guidebooks Frommer's the Carolinas & Georgia and Frommer's Virginia. Both publications also furnish excellent dining and activities recommendations and thorough information on the major attractions in each area.
