Episode 10: Southernisms

A sunset over the city in Savannah, Georgia.


Known for incredible coastal weather, unparalleled hospitality, and locals with sweet Southern drawls, Savannah, Georgia, is a mecca for Southern culture, cuisine and language. In this episode, we sit down with Savannah locals and fellow Visit Savannah team members Erica Backus and Ansley Connor to talk about what makes the South, and specifically Savannah, different from anywhere else on Earth! We cover everything from Southern sayings to Southern cooking, including important influences from the Gullah-Geechee people and early European settlers. Grab a coke and some boiled peanuts and enjoy!
