Savannah is credited as the first planned city in America. Designed on a series of grids, the streets of Savannah are entwined with public squares and parks. Twenty-one of the original twenty-four squares are still in existence. Savannah also boasts the nation's largest registered urban historic landmark district, with more than 1,600 restored structures.

In Savannah, it is very easy to mix business with pleasure. Known for its natural beauty and the charm of a carefully preserved historic district, many are surprised to learn that Savannah also boasts a thriving, tech-savvy community—with more than 350 knowledge-based businesses, 33,000 miles of fiber-optic cable, and a wireless broadband network covering more than 100 square miles. This convergence of art and technology has led to Savannah’s emerging identity as The Creative Coast. Georgia Tech’s prestige knows no boundaries throughout the state, the nation and the world. This unique combination makes the Savannah campus a great environment that fosters creative and innovative thinking.
