Georgia has its fair share of beauty, but one place recently earned top honors from a magazine billed as an authority on American design and decoration.
Home and garden magazine "House Beautiful" acclaimed Wormsloe Plantation in Savannah, with its towering live oaks and dreamy Spanish moss, as one of the 50 most beautiful places in the U.S.
House Beautiful shared the story of the plantation's owner, Noble Jones, who began as a "humble carpenter" in England before coming to America in 1733.
He spent his years in the states as a physician, royal councilor and eventually made Wormsloe his home.
According to "House Beautiful," costumed period actors often entertain visitors there to this day.
Once you get a look at the beauty of Wormsloe and popular attractions and venues like River Street and the Savannah River, explore the Savannah you don't know.
Or check out one of the most-visited graves in the world, which sits in Savannah's Bonaventure Cemetery.
