How to Spend 1 Day in Savannah

How to Spend 1 Day in Savannah

Savannah is an ideal place to spend a day, especially for history buffs, architecture lovers, foodies, and those interested in Southern culture. From the city’s National Historic Landmark District to the riverfront, there’s plenty to do and see in this Georgia gem. Here are our favorite ways to enjoy 24 hours in Savannah.

Morning: City overview

Get your bearings on a hop-on hop-off trolley tour that highlights the top sights in the Savannah Historic District and surrounding streets. Stretching from River Street to Forsyth Park, the district is chock-full of landmarks important to the city’s heritage. Alternatively, get the lay of the land on a Segway, or a combo land and water tour that includes a Savannah River cruise.

Afternoon: A walk

With its leafy streets, manicured squares, and well-preserved historical architecture, Savannah was made for walking tours—so take your pick of themes and put on your walking shoes. Perhaps you’d like to see Civil War sites, or locations related to the bestselling book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Opt for a culinary tour to learn about Savannah’s food scene, or explore Bonaventure Cemetery for something more macabre. Most tours are led by guides with deep knowledge of the city’s heritage.

Night: Savannah’s spooky side

Time to discover the darker side of the city on a ghost walking tour, as a guide leads you to haunted locations and tells you sinister stories about characters from the past. Most ghost tours take place in the historic district and feature tales about local superstitions, mysteries, crimes, and spirits. Visitors of drinking age might choose a haunted pub tour for a fun twist. If you’d prefer a more relaxing evening experience, head out on a Savannah River cruise to watch the sunset and admire the city from the water.
