How Much Time To Spend in Savannah

by BaBiEeMeLLy

Hello everyone. My family and I are looking into going on a two week vacation next year. We were thinking of going to Savannah, and renting a condo or home on Tybee Island. Do you think two weeks is too long to stay in the area? Is there enough to do? Any suggestions and opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I don't know what your family's interests are but there is a lot to do in the area. Savannah is one of the most beautiful old cities around and you could easily spend a couple of days walking the squares. It is also about an 1-1.5 hours from St. Simon's Island and Jekyll Island which are both worth exploring. If anyone likes golf there are some great courses in the area.

Plenty to do here or around here. The water is still warm enough to swim in comared to NY water temps in the summer. Checkout my VT pages for a day trip to Cumberland Island ( wild horses,deer, wild life of all kinds and a 21 mile pristeen beach you can run naked on & never see a another person since they limit to 300 the number of daily visiters)camping. Plenty of partying in Sav of all kinds. Museums, Savannah Wildlife Refuge ( birds & gators ) Wormlsoe Plantation, Fort Polaski, River St. City Market, alot of historical buildings, home of the girl scouts and Jingle Bell. Charlston is 21/2 hours away for more historical stuff & plantations, walking tours, ghost tours, cemetary tours.

A week is a good amount of time to spend in Savannah and the general area. A lot of it depends on what you want to do. I had never been to Savannah before my trip and it took me about five days to hit the all of the major things (Colonial Cemetery, Bonaventure Cemetery, River Street, Historic Squares, Mercer House, Tybee Beach, etc). After that I had two days to hang out, relax, and enjoy the city. Traveling can be hectic so I would recommend giving yourself a couple of days just to enjoy your destination. If I had two weeks then I probably would have taken a day trip to Charleston, SC and other locations close to Savannah.

Travel Tips for Savannah

Walking in Savannah

by PA2AKgirl

This is definitely a city you where you can walk around. It's laid out in a grid system, with "squares" everywhere. These little open areas have live oaks and beautiful architecture surrounding them where you can just relax. There is a ton of history in this town and notorious for its southern society. ("Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil contributed to this...a lot like "The Great Gatsby" of the south...) Just walking around, you can submerge yourself in history and southern culture and customs.

by richiecdisc

The Owens-Thomas House was designed by William Jay and is considered to be one of the finest examples of the style in the nation. Tours are available for $8 from 10-5, Monday-Saturday, Sunday from 1-5 and it houses many of the original furnishings from the Thomas family.

Thunderbolt

by grandmaR

In Thunderbolt, you have a scenic drive along US 80 (Victory Drive) featuring marsh, yachts, and shrimp boats with a huge live oak in the center of the road.

When General James Oglethorpe settled in Savannah in 1733, he developed numerous smaller settlements in an "agrarian-military outpost scheme to protect the settlement of Savannah from the Spanish".

Most of these outposts disappeared, but Thunderbolt was on a bluff was on the inland water route which led from Savannah south to St. Simons Island and Spanish Florida. Early detection of intruders could provide Savannah residents with the necessary time to prepare themselves for defense.

According to Oglethorpe, the town was named after "a rock which was here shattered by a thunderbolt, causing a spring to gush from the ground, which continued ever afterward to emit the odor of brimstone."

In 1778, the British captured Savannah without much opposition, but Thunderbolt remained in patriot hands. . The attack of the French and American on the British, the Siege of Savannah, lasted only about one hour, occurring along the western boundary of the city, and was a failure. The French lost one-hundred and fifty men and three-hundred and seventy were wounded. The American casualties were tallied at two-hundred and thirty killed or wounded, while the British lost only eighteen with forty wounded. The Battle of Bunker Hill was the only military conflict in the American Revolutionary War to exceed the combined casualties at the Siege of Savannah.

In the Civil War, the Thunderbolt Battery was instrumental in the defense of Savannah. Thunderbolt never fell to the enemy, and increased armament and river obstructions kept the Union forces from landing. Nothing remains of the Thunderbolt Battery today due to a combination of initial neglect and commercial and industrial development.

If you come to visit Bonaventure Cemetery, you will also be visiting Thunderbolt. There is also the Magic Mermaid which offers a dinner and gambling cruise.

Planter's Tavern

by SFHulaGIrl about Planter's Tavern

Planter's Tavern is the bar located in the basement of The Olde Pink House restaurant. This dimly lit bar had two (if I recall correctly) fireplaces, some tables and bar space. Service was good and relatively friendly. I merely had a Heineken ($4.50) and some tasty she crab soup ($7.25). They were fairly busy for an early Wednesday evening.

Everyone already knows this but....

by ocvbgrl about Mrs Wilkes Boarding House

Every tour guide book tells you not to miss this. And I agree! My last trip had me waiting in line for an hour to get into this place for lunch. Worth every minute I stood out there! They seat you at a large table with other customers (who you may or may not know). The food is served "family style"---dishes just passed around. There was so much food on this table! As my grandfather always used to say, "if you go hungry it's your own fault"!!! Everything was wonderful. I even enjoyed foods that I normally don't eat (such as tomatoes and sweet potatoes). This place is a good deal for the low cost. No need to eat again the rest of the day! sweet potatoes
fried chicken
bread pudding
