1. EXPLORE TYBEE ISLAND BY BOAT

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

2. HUNT FOR GHOSTS

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.

MOVE ASIDE KIDS. THIS IS HOW IT'S DONE. #watchandlearn

3. SPLASH IN ELLIS SQUARE’S FOUNTAIN

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.

4. SIP FROZEN DRINKS ON THE GO

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!

5. LEARN SOMETHING NEW 

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!
