Savannah Holidays

Get inspiration

SAVANNAH? SORTED.

Sitting on the west coast of Georgia, Savannah is a spacious, green city that’s steeped in history. With its quirky vibe and laidback atmosphere, you can expect to see plenty of farmers’ markets, art galleries and antebellum architecture. If you’re looking to discover the charm of the American South at your own pace, a holiday in Savannah is the perfect fit, with everything from walking tours to riverboat cruises.

With some buildings dating back as far as the 18th century, a walk around Savannah’s Historic District is a great way to learn about the city’s fascinating past. See the gothic-architecture of Green-Meldrim House, which was once a general’s headquarters during the American Civil War. Or, you can head further along the Savannah River to Old Fort Jackson and watch the cannons fire from the grounds. If you want to spend some time among nature, Savannah is dotted with gorgeous parks and squares that are perfectly suited to a gentle stroll, or a sit-down in the sunshine. Wander beneath an arched parade of ancient oak trees at Wormsloe Historic Site, or listen to the peaceful sounds of the water fountain at Forsyth Park.

If you want a more thrilling experience in Savannah, wait until after sunset and take part in one of the famous ghost tours through the city. Dive into the haunted history of the Moon River Brewery, before learning about the mysterious happenings at the Pirates’ House Restaurant. For another unique experience, take a short, 20-minute drive to the sandy beaches of Tybee Island. Go on a sunset boat tour to spot dolphins in their natural habitat, before watching baby alligators swim in the lagoon over at the Crab Shack.

Whether you want a holiday that’s all about exploring a new city, or you’re looking for a dose of sun and sea, Savannah is the ideal spot. To see just how simple a trip to Savannah can be, get in touch with one of our Travel Specialists and start planning your American South adventure.

Things to do in Savannah

From peaceful parks and plazas, to cannon-firing forts, Savannah has it all. This city is perfect for days spent exploring and soaking up some Southern history. And, with a fascinating coastline just a short drive away, the list of things to do here is endless.
A trip to Savannah is not complete without a visit to the Historic District. Located in the heart of the city, just south of the Savannah River, this area is a hotspot for sightseeing. Spend a day walking around the picturesque streets, admiring the 18th and 19th century architecture and historical landmarks. Whilst you’re in this district, you may also want to spend some time in Forsyth Park. One of Savannah’s many green spaces, this park is arguably the most beautiful, with its moss-hung oak trees and grand, French-inspired fountain.

Another popular attraction in Savannah is the nearby Tybee Island. Accessible by car, this is the place to go if you’re after a day of sun, sand, and surfing in the sea. If you’re wanting to stay on dry land, you can go for a walk along the pier, or learn all about coastal ecology over at the Marine Science Centre. Or, if you’d rather get out on the water, why not go on a dolphin-spotting tour at sunset?

Food

The food scene in Savannah is surprisingly diverse, with a wide range of casual eateries and gourmet restaurants to choose from. Whether you opt for comfort food or fine dining is up to you, but you’ll be sure to get a hearty portion of Southern hospitality wherever you go.
For riverside views, signature cocktails and live piano music every night, you can head over to Vic’s on the River. This transformed cotton warehouse serves traditional Southern dishes with a refined twist, from the signature shrimp and grits, to the classic jumbo lump crab cakes.

If you fancy something sweet to top it all off, Leopold Ice Cream have been a Savannah staple since 1919. Choose from one of their adventurous flavours such as red velvet, rose petal, pumpkin spice, or peanut butter.
Alternatively, if you’re after a unique, fun-filled dining experience, the Crab Shack on Tybee Island is the place to go. Tuck into a seafood feast and sip on ice-cold coconut water, as you look down into a lagoon full of baby alligators.

Art and culture

If you’re on the hunt for some artistic inspiration, look no further than Savannah. With art galleries, theatres and festivals galore, let your creativity blossom as you discover the city’s cultural landscape.
As one of the oldest operating theatres in the United States, The Savannah Theatre is both a historic landmark and a fantastic entertainment spot. Take your pick from the wide range of live shows, musical performances and film screenings that are on offer throughout the year. Or, if you’re visiting the city in October, why not grab a ticket to the SCAD Savannah Film Festival? Get involved in panels and workshops, or simply come along to watch some award-winning short films.

When it comes to finding great art in this city, the Savannah African Art Museum is a good place to start. See the hundreds of West and Central African artefacts that are on display, or learn all about African art and storytelling at one of their fascinating exhibitions. Alternatively, head to one of the galleries around Savannah City Market to see colourful, contemporary pieces from independent artists.

Best time to go to Savannah

Although it’s considered to be the ‘off-season’ for tourism, autumn is actually a gorgeous time of year in Savannah. With moderate temperatures, sunny blue skies, and oak trees turning orange and gold, it really is a splendid season. It’s also a great time for music festivals. In September, you can catch incredible concerts at the Savannah Jazz Festival, or in October you can listen to the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra play for free at Phil in the Park

For foodies visiting Savannah, oyster season runs from September through to December, with plenty of restaurants taking advantage.
Spring and summer are also fantastic times to go. If you’re visiting in March, be sure to stick around to see the city come alive with Celtic music for the famous St Patrick’s parade. Or, if you’re here during the summer months, you can spend your time soaking up some sun over on Tybee Island.
