CAN’T MISS THINGS TO DO IN SAVANNAH
STROLL ALONG RIVER STREET
One could not come to Savannah without admiring the river on River Street. This iconic cobblestone street is a popular hub for locals and visitors alike. At over 200 years old, exploring these revitalized cotton warehouses serve as a rite of passage for those who visit to our beautiful city. Home to over 75 shops, galleries, studios, restaurants, pubs and more, Savannah’s River Street is the ultimate spot for relaxing by the water and ship-watching dozens of giant container ships passing by daily.
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE ARTS
Make time in your busy schedule to visit some of Savannah’s most notable art attractions. The Telfair Museum is the oldest public art museum in the Southeast. The Davenport House Museum is one of the oldest brick structures in the city, and its furnishings and artifacts display a glimpse of home life in the 1800s. Just outside of the city, nestled right off the Moon River, the Pin Point Heritage Museum offers visitors an inside look at the Gullah-Geechee community.
HOP ON A TOUR
Hop aboard a trolley tour to get an overview of Savannah! Both Old Town Trolley Tours and Old Savannah Tours have daily trolley tours that will help you get better acquainted with Savannah’s streets and attractions. These “hop on, hop off” tours make it incredibly easy to hear the history of Savannah while getting around town for the day.
TAKE YOUR DRINK TO-GO
The before, during and after cocktail is an unwritten rule here in Savannah. You can sip on the go in the Historic District (between River Street and Jones Street) thanks to Savannah’s open container law. If your beverage of choice is in an open, plastic to-go cup, containing no more than 16 ounces, you can be on your way to your next adventure in our beautiful city. We’ll cheers to that!
