Historic Savannah

Take a stroll along the Spanish moss draped squares and cobblestone streets for which Savannah is known. Step back in time and experience some of our finest sights.

Bull Street

Bull Street

Coursing down the center of Savannah’s innovative grid street plan is Bull Street, a grand avenue canopied with moss-draped live oaks and lined by historical churches, antiques stores, trendy boutiques and some of the city’s most lovely residences. From its north end at City Hall to the south end where it leads into beautiful Forsyth Park, Bull Street is the central spine of an energetic downtown and the home of some of Savannah's most recognizable landmarks.

Capital Bee Savannah

Broughton Street

Thought of as Savannah’s “Main Street,” Broughton Street was once and is again the commercial and retail center of downtown. Locals and visitors alike fill cafes, coffee shops and boutiques that make up a beautiful and buzzing streetscape that is the heart of Savannah’s Historic District.

City Market

Since some of the city’s earliest days, Savannah’s craftsmen, farmers, artisans, artists and tradesmen met and mingled in this district alive with the sights and sounds of a busy port city to shop and trade. The place where Savannahians have gathered and exchanged goods since the eighteenth century is still the city’s hub for shopping, dining, art, entertainment and nightlife.


OTT River Street

River Street

The bustling waterfront of a port city is still alive today as one of Savannah’s most active and vibrant areas! Cobblestone-paved River Street is lined with 19th century warehouses where goods--primarily giant bales of cotton--were offloaded from ships or stored in preparation for their long journey across the Atlantic. Today the warehouses are home to more than 75 unique galleries, restaurants, artists’ studios and shops including some of the city’s most popular and recognizable names. Sip and snack along the riverwalk, or pause on a bench to watch some of the world’s largest container vessels sail past downtown on their way upriver to the modern Port of Savannah.


Tybee Island

Just a few miles down the road from Savannah but an entire world away is Tybee Island, a charming seaside village reminiscent of the beach towns of your childhood. Packed with local businesses, Tybee is funky, vibrant, welcoming and low-key, and is a perfect destination for a romantic weekend getaway or a sun-soaked vacation with the kids.
