Savannah is mostly a city of independent boutiques, small galleries, and family-run stores. The young SCAD—founded in 1978—is responsible for much of the city’s creative boom, and you’ll find work from both alumni and students stocked in the shops, galleries, and home stores. Savannah’s literary history is also on display in bookstores—Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil should be required reading before you arrive. It’s easy to pick up something unique and memorable, whether it’s home goods from 24e Design or Shop SCAD, or an unusual food or drink item—one of Pie Society’s British savory pies in City Market, for example, or a rare craft beer from the Habersham Beverage Center.
