We are going to FLA in a couple of weeks and were going to stay in/near Savannah on the way (we have a 10 month old baby) and maybe spend an afternoon and evening.

Can anyone recommend where to stay? We saw a couple of cheap hotels in Pooler? Is it a nice area? Hotels okay or no good?

Or should we just stay in the historic district (I can cash in some rewards points for the Doubletree or Hampton Inn)?

Can someone share a "to do" list of things to do/see while we are there? Places to walk to? Places to eat?

Share some insider info!

I would strongly suggest you cash in some of your rewards points and stay in the historic district. Though Pooler and the surrounding areas around 95 are nice and cheap, they are too far away to really enjoy Savannah to its fullest. Of course you could drive the extra 20-25 minutes from there but you do NOT want to drive once you're in the historic district. It is done so much easier and better walking.

While you are here, I would suggest taking a trolley tour of the city first to get your bearings. Find a map of the district to help you out. After that, take a walk along River Street, City Market (If you're a Paula Deen fan, she's got a restaurant called The Lady & Sons located near City Market. If you aren't, I wouldn't bother eating there.) If you aren't a fan, there are other better restaurants to eat at such as The Olde Pink House, Vic's on the River or 45 Bistro inside the Marshall House (which is a sort of boutique hotel located on East Broughton Street. If you don't mind spending $130-$180 this is the PERFECT place to stay while in Savannah also; the oldest hotel in SAV)
Bull Street is one of the most scenic streets downtown. I would suggest walking this street to Forsyth Park where there is a beautiful fountain and a lot of places to have a picnic if that is your desire.

There are so many more things I could list but you get the idea.
Have fun and enjoy Savannah!
