Attractions in Savannah



Popular Places

  • Grayson Stadium
  • Savannah History Museum
  • Skidaway Island State Park
  • Old-South ambiance hangs in the Savannah air like Spanish moss. You could spend a whole day just strolling the shady streets, stopping in languid squares and soaking in the romantic vibe. But you'll probably want a couple good attractions to anchor your meanderings, and Savannah's got plenty of those too. Spared from Civil War destruction, history is on the top of any Savannah itinerary. Start at the Savannah History Museum in the Historic District, 2.5 miles of Downtown that also include the restored Davenport Museum House and the Mercer Williams House, setting of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Gaze into the unique stained glass depictions at the First African Baptist Church and stop into Savannah's oldest cemetery, Colonial Park Cemetery. Literary buffs should be sure to stop into the Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home. Should you really want to delve into history, take one of the famous Savannah ghost tours. Heading outside the Historic District will reveal more of Savannah's soul. History lovers will want to check out the tidal moat and brick walls of Old Fort Jackson, music lovers won't want to miss the annual Savannah Jazz Festivals, and plain old lovers should be sure to take a romantic riverboat cruise on the Savannah River Queen. And of course, no trip to Savannah is complete without a stop by the famous Bonaventure Cemetery. Get outside the city to reconnect with Savannah's natural attractions. Stroll along the live oaks of Wormsloe State Historic Site, climb the spiral staircase of Tybee Island Lighthouse, and catch a glimpse of the wild horses of Cumberland Island National Seashore. The nature trails and campgrounds of Skidaway Island State Park make for the perfect family getaway. But more than any one attraction, the real draw of Savannah is the city itself—the antebellum architecture, the 24 public squares, the history that wafts through the quiet streets and lingers on the wrought-iron balconies.
