With a historic center built around squares and parks, the city is a history buff's delight, while the coastal location makes it a draw for beach lovers, top cuisine attracts foodies, and outdoor lovers find plenty of ways to enjoy Georgia's mild climate.

Every visit to Savannah should start in the historic center of town. Take a tour to admire the town's historic houses and the statues in the squares, plus leave time to linger near the famous fountain in Forsyth Park. You can explore by trolley, foot, or riverboat. An after-dark Ghosts and Legends tour shines a different light on local history. Another great nighttime activity is a show at the Historic Savannah Theatre, which has been putting on live performances since 1818.
Enjoy a delicious meal at Paula Deen's Lady & Sons restaurant. The Food Network celebrity chef's restaurant features great southern-inspired cooking. There's even more traditional southern cooking at the Olde Pink House Restaurant and Tavern, serving diners since 1789. The ghost of original mansion owner James Habersham Jr. may join you for dinner. Leave the city behind for a day exploring the coast.
Tybee Island is just over a half-hour's drive away. Head to South Beach and its five miles of shore and ocean. Spend an active day outside on a golf course, like the Club at Savannah Harbor. You'll enjoy scenic views as you make your way around the 18 holes. There are also great fishing options at rivers in the Savannah area, so bring your tackle. Or roam around the Oatland Island Wildlife Center, to meet some of Georgia's animal residents.
