7 Savannah Must-Dos to Add to Your Summer Bucket List

It’s officially summer in Savannah! These Savannah summer must-dos will make planning your getaway a breeze.


Grab your sunglasses and a cooler and hop on board one of Tybee Island‘s boat charter tours. Explore the Island’s surroundings on a breezy boat ride, and make a stop at Little Tybee — a tiny island off the coast. On a boat charter tour, you’ll learn about Tybee‘s plant and wildlife, and will have plenty of chances to see dolphins swim! Click here to learn more about Tybee Island‘s boat charter tours.

One of the most haunted Bed and Breakfasts in Savannah, the Kehoe House is a perfect place to stay while visiting Savannah. That is, if you think the possibility of being woken in the middle of the night by the ghosts of children is a good time. #Savannah #haunted #ghostcitytours

When the sun goes down, Savannah’s spirits come out to play. Beat the heat this summer by exploring Savannah’s paranormal history by moonlight. Whether you want to walk your way from sight to sight or ride through the city on a spooky hearse or trolley, you’ll get your share of ghostly sightings.

Take the whole family out for a day of splashing and playing in Ellis Square‘s dancing fountain. Located next to City Market, Ellis Square‘s fountain will make you feel like a kid again.

What’s summertime without a frozen daiquiri? Make a pit stop at one of Savannah’s many pubs and restaurants and grab a frozen drink to-go! Savannah’s open container law makes it A-OK for you to drink outside. Can you imagine relaxing in a shady square with a frozen margarita? Divine!

Kobo's own, @tobiamakover at the Jepson. This Tuesday 6-7:30… reception and artist talk… free and open to the public. #art912 #encausticphotography #museum #artforthemasses @artrisesav

Summer is the time of the year to broaden your horizons. Step into a historic home that you’ve never seen before, like the Davenport House or the Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home. Head to the Jepson Center or to see a brand new art exhibit, or explore the murals at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. You may be surprised how intrigued you will be!

Mmm! 😍 Now that looks amazing! Guess where? @Local11Ten!

If you’ve been dreaming of plump scallops, low country boil and fresh bass, Savannah is the place for you! Dine on fresh crab cakes, juicy shrimp cocktail and gumbos that will create mouth-watering memories.

    Just an overnight arriving 7/29 until our stay at Hilton Head opens up the afternoon of the following day. May have part of evening of the 29th and half a day of the 30th. We love Savannah and even spent a couple days there to celebrate my 40th a few years back. We annually go to Hilton Head and try to include Savannah in our stay. Anything we should know about those dates for things to do. We will be there with our 2 teenage boys too. I also am a home brewer and want to visit any breweries in the area.

  5. Jerome Ruch says:

    Kindly advise location of Savannah and the nearest international airport in order to try and get my bearings and see when a visit may be possible – I would like to tie it in with a visit to the USA next year – is Savannah close to Myrtle beach? If not, please advise which well known city is closest.
    Thanking you kindly,

    I love driving up to Savannah. It is a beautiful busy little city. I love all the parks and squares and I’m a foodie, so I love the food. We go to Lady and Sons for lunch often, but we also love so many other places. I love walking through Bonaventure cemetery . We also drive down to Sweet Potatoes for an eclectic meal. It’s all good in Savannah.

  11. Diane says:

    Can you tell me what bed and breakfast or places to stay other then a hotel that is within walking distance to Riverstreet and City Marketplace, I was looking at the COnch Cottage and Forsythe House, but not sure of the locations,

    Thank you
