Park at Forsyth Park to get photos at the fountain
Stroll through the historic district, specifically down Bull Street (my favorite street in Savannah), taking in historic homes and our famous squares, filled with beautiful churches and my favorite local shopping.
Make sure you visit the SCAD Story or Shop SCAD on the corner of Bull and Charlton Street.

If you are here for lunch, I recommend checking out Art’s Cafe to grab a quick bite and eat in the double decker bus, or Six Pence Pub for quick and delicious English pub fare.

If you stop by in the evening, walk along Broughton Street with a to-go drink from a local restaurant, bar, or brewery.

After a long day, sit down for a lovely, fine dining experience at Boar’s Head Grill & Tavern, or swing by PJs Thai Corner for more casual dining, as well as the best Thai food in Savannah.
To wrap up the evening, enjoy some live music, karaoke, and dancing at McDonough’s, or Water Witch Tiki Bar on Bull Street.

Start your weekend with a Trolley Ride and/or any of the guided tours Savannah offers – always the best way to see Savannah if you are a first time visitor, as it helps you get acquainted with the city and helps you find your favorite spots.
For dinner, I recommend Crystal Beer Parlor, on West Jones Street, for the oldest restaurant in Savannah and some amazing food – go early if you plan to go to the 8:00 show.
To end the night, stop at The Savannah Theatre for a show, followed by a drink at McDonough’s or Six Pence Pub afterwards.

Start the day with a drive to Tybee, where you can relax on the beach, eat at The Crab Shack and feed the alligators, and visit Tybee’s historic Lighthouse.
On the way back to Savannah, stop and tour Old Fort Jackson to learn various drills, military communication, and even watch a cannon demonstration anytime between 11:00am and 2:00pm.
However, if you want to spend all day downtown, be sure to visit at least one of our many museums, like the Andrew Low House, Georgia State Railroad Museum or Webb Military Museum – Depending on your interests, we probably have a museum for it.

In the afternoon, stroll through downtown visiting your favorite places from yesterday – we recommend shopping on Broughton Street, Bull Street, and River Street.

After dinner, take a refreshing walk from River Street to Plant Riverside for some live entertainment to wrap up the evening.

Begin your Sunday with brunch at Café M on Bay Street for authentic French breakfast cuisine.
After Brunch, take a stroll or rent a bike and ride through Forsyth Park for some time to relax and enjoy Savannah’s scenery.
To fill the rest of your day, a tour of the Jepson or Telfair Art Museum is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, which can be followed by a late lunch or dinner at Wet Willies either in City Market or on River Street.
