Discover the South’s Most Eccentric City 

Hip and historic, Savannah’s endearing personality shines

Savannah is a charming, Southern escape, where quirkiness materializes through art and period architecture houses trendy boutiques, where ghost stories are set under a veil of Spanish moss and where local cuisine comes straight from the coast. Known as one of the “World’s 30 Friendliest Cities” by Condé Nast Traveler readers, this coastal town has a world-class reputation for hospitality and grace. Savannah will draw you in with romantic ambiance and a lively atmosphere long before you leave its flourishing, park-like historic district.

Grab some friends or a loved one and discover all this city has to offer this summer. From music festivals to art exhibits, paddleboarding and kayaking to evenings on the town, warm temperatures create the perfect setting for relaxation by day and revelry by night. With a large variety of attractions to explore in Savannah’s downtown, and Tybee Island just 20 minutes away, you’ll find a well-rounded lineup of indoor and outdoor activities to suit your style. 

Take a tour through a pre-Civil War era mansion at the Mercer-Williams House, or visit the birthplace of the Girl Scouts of America at the Juliette Gordon Low House. 

Test your bravery on a haunted ghost tour through Savannah, which has been called “America’s most haunted city,” or take a movie tour to learn about feature films produced here. Museums in Savannah contain pieces of work that are sure to enthrall you, while statues stand prominently throughout the city to commemorate its rich history.

New restaurants in Savannah offer a trendy take on classic cuisine. Hot spots like 

The Grey, The Florence, Cotton & Rye, The Collins Quarter, Pacci Italian Kitchen + Bar and The Wyld Dock Bar focus on fresh, locally sourced, coastal dishes with a Southern spin that keep visitors craving more. The best part about Savannah’s culinary scene is the ability to dine outdoors for most of the year at many vibrant, lively spots throughout the city.

Savannah has accommodations to fit any preference. Book your stay at a beach bungalow Airbnb or a vacation rental loft overlooking Broughton Street. If a modern, boutique hotel or classic inn intrigues you, options are plentiful. No matter what you choose, Savannah will reward you with a getaway unlike any other.
