Destination Savannah

Today, The Miami Herald has a traveler's guide to Savannah, GA - the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low. The article pinpoints many sights to see in Savannah, including both The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace and The Girl Scout Museum. The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace was saved from destruction by the Girl Scouts, who raised $60,000 in three years through their Dimes for Daisy initiative. The house, owned by the Girl Scouts of the USA, was the first National Historic Landmark in the city and is staffed by grown-up Girl Scouts. Built in 1821, the house has been elegantly restored to reflect the 1880s and furnished with many original Gordon family pieces, including artwork by Juliette Gordon Low.

I spent a large amount of my childhood in Savannah and have always thought it to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Have you ever been to The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace?
