Savannah

About

Savannah offers visitors the sort of laid-back charm ideal for a vacation. Its Southern Gothic appeal is brought to life by moss-draped live oaks, elegant parks, beautifully preserved antebellum mansions, and spooky historical "ghost tours." Restaurants featuring Southern ultra-comfort food and a wide range of outdoor activities round out the offerings, making Savannah an ideal weekend getaway or longer vacation. Savannah has long inspired the imagination. Not only has it been immortalized in books such as Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and movies like Forrest Gump, but Savannah is known by some as America's most haunted city. Nighttime ghost tours bring visitors a titillating slice of city history and supernatural speculation. One of the most popular things to do in Savannah is to simply explore the beauty of the city. An impressive conservation effort starting in the 1950s has created a city of architectural jewels: Hundreds of beautifully restored 18th and 19th century Georgian, Greek Revival, and Gothic buildings make up the largest urban National Historic Landmark district in the U.S. Visitors can soak in the charm on a walking tour, carriage ride, free shuttle, or by simply strolling the streets. Daytrips beyond Savannah put Atlantic beaches at your feet. Tybee Island, just 20 minutes from Savannah, is known for its sand dunes, dolphins, and famous Lowcountry cuisine. An hour from Savannah, Hilton Head and Beaufort offer more beaches, plus shopping, golf, and quaint downtowns. With daily nonstops from Atlanta, Dallas, New York, Washington, D.C., and other major cities, plus connecting service to points around the country, flights to Savannah are easy to find.

When To Go

Savannah is a preferred vacation destination almost anytime of the year. The most popular time to visit is March through May, when temperatures are mild, flowers are in bloom, and events are happening everywhere. Visitors will find fewer crowds and lower prices during the summer and winter months, but temperatures aren't as ideal. Early fall can be a favorable time to go, with a good balance of pleasant weather and fewer visitors.
