America's Strangest People
No. 6 Savannah, GA
This historic (and ghost-loving) Georgia city consistently ranks in the offbeat top 10 for bucking the notion of southern propriety. Browse the weekly market at Forsyth Park, or catch some impromptu theater from the cardboard-clad Live Action Role Playing Club. For a good snapshot of the city’s happy-hour atmosphere, pull up a stool at downtown’s Bay Street Blues, which is run by a mother-daughter team and attracts an eclectic, karaoke-loving crowd.
