Visiting Savannah

Sultry Savannah—dripping with history, draped with Spanish moss, and resounding with Southern drawls—is a perfectly laid-back place to get away from it all. Check into one of its charming and historic hotels (you can do haunted, too, if you’d like) and begin a vacation full of fun things to do (or head to Tybee Island beaches to do nothing at all). For Civil War buffs, there’s Fort Pulaski; for shoppers, River Street; and for art lovers, Telfair Museums.

But perhaps the best of Savannah is reserved for foodies: tucked between rightly famous destination dining like The Lady & Sons and The Pirates’ House lie many wonderful low-key restaurants for a low-country boil.

For a glimpse of the stunning parks and gardens you’ll see on your future trolley tour, check out our Savannah photos. Already thinking about how to get there? Browse cheap flights, too!
