Exploring the Enchanted City of Savannah
With so much to see in this enchanted city, here’s a quick list of “must-see” things to do in Savannah.
Visit Forsyth Park
This 30 acre park is nestled in the Historic Landmark District and is known for its Spanish Moss draped Oak Trees, pedestrian/jogger-friendly sidewalks and the fountain. You can also swing by Chippewa Square, also known as Forrest Gump Square, the bus stop scenes from the Oscar winning motion picture were filmed on the north end of the square.
Take a Ghost Tour
Known as one of the most haunted cities in America, Savannah’s streets are filled with mystery and intrigue… especially at night. Ghost tours offer the bravest of souls a chance to learn about the ghosts and spirits that haunt the historical district. If you’re not afraid of a little paranormal activity, there are plenty of terrifying tours to choose from.
Eat Lunch in the Yard
On Saturdays, The Grey, a former Greyhound Bus Station turned restaurant, hosts a breezy patio lunch. Enjoy anything from grilled sausage to a good ol’ oyster roast for only $7 a plate!
Visit Telfair Museums
If you’re a fan of artwork from the 19th and 20th centuries (or if you just need a break from the Georgia heat), you’ll want to spend a few hours perusing this mansion-turned-museum housing more than 4,500 works of art.
Stroll Down River Street
Beautiful cobblestone streets (high heels beware!!) offer the perfect platform to walk down this one-of-a-kind riverfront view. With over 70 local shops, restaurants and businesses, River Street is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike, offering a charming experience for all who visit.
