Enjoy the Best Savannah Has to Offer

Savannah is a city steeped in rich tradition, enduring history, gracious charm and an eclectic mix of worldly residents. Easily explored on foot, this southern destination is a great choice for families who enjoy leisurely sightseeing vacations. Be sure to visit the Historic District and learn about the famous Savannah Squares originally built by James Oglethorpe in 1773. Come spring, there’s no better time to be in this popular Georgia city. Travel down cobblestone streets past antebellum homes with gorgeous manicured gardens—or just breathe in the sweet smell of azaleas wafting through the air while walking under a canopy of moss-draped oak trees.

The streets of Savannah are a destination all on their own. Shop for the chic or go for the classics and everything in between. Mingle with artists, historians and students. You can also take a savory culinary journey where the dining choices are always decadent, prepared with regional flair and served with genuine southern hospitality.

More Fun for Everyone

  • Enjoy a carefree day at Tybee Island. Start by watching the sunrise. Then hop on a bike and go for a ride along the coast of this barrier island. Soak up some sun on miles of beaches or catch a glimpse of a movie star. Other stars include sea turtles—and these locals are some of the most popular things to see on the island.
  • For a truly historic experience, visit the Savannah Cotton Exchange. This landmark dates back to 1887 when Savannah was the leading cotton seaport on the Atlantic, shipping more than two million bales of cotton per year.
  • The Mercer-Williams House was made famous in the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. But it’s much more than a big-screen legend. The once vacant house was completely restored and is now home to a private collection of 17th and 18th century art and furniture plus porcelain imported from China.

    Trendy and historic with pleasant year-round temperatures, Savannah is always a top destination.

    Here are some great vacation ideas:

    • Scare up a good time driving through one of America’s most haunted cities—in the back of a hearse. Savannah Ghost Tours will take you to the spooky side of town, if you dare…

    • Step back in time and step onto one of Savannah’s original squares—Ellis Square.
