Take a walking tour. Savannah...
Take a walking tour. Savannah Walks offers a variety of wonderful tours through the old town, describing everything from history, architecture, and gardens to their famous 'Ghost' tour, describing the various hauntings that lurk in the city.
EMBRACE the traditions.
I often heard this said while living in Georgia:
"If you live in Macon, you will be asked 'what church you attend,' if you live in Augusta
you will be asked 'what your mother's maiden name was,' but if you come to Savannah they will ask 'what would you like to DRINK?'"
I believe that to still be quite true to this very day. Savannah is actually smaller than
most of the other cities in total population, but it is by far the most active for nightlife.
About the only thing that I'd advise out-of-towners against is sharing a lot of their
"great ideas about how to make the city better." Most locals would just politely
smile and IGNORE your brashness. This is a city that is rich in tradition and proud of
its heritage. It is not a city that secretly wants to be New York or LA. I respect that. After
a week or so there....you will too.
Of course a trip to Savannah is never complete without visting Tybee Island..This place is definitely off the beaten path..However, it's VERY well known so it does get crowded on the weekends..The one thing about Tybee that's kind of sad is that there isn't enough night life there..Oh you have your local bars etc..but it's not same as having a fun night club to go to..Also it seems like EVERYTHING just closes right up around 9:00pm..If you want Quiet then Tybee is the place to go..I'll have more on Tybee in my other destinations section.
Karaoke and Military
Fun little bar. They have karaoke 7 days a week and 22 flatscreen TVs with sports on. Lots of young enlisted soldiers and marines hang out here on the weekends, and it can get a bit rowdy, but in a fun way!
Great food, too! Jeans, casual
Superior Sea Food
Built in 1771 this old house was the home of a wealthy plantation owner. It is now a small hotel and in the basement is the Restaurant. It has great seafood along with other tempting items on the menu. We loved it!! Serves dinner only from 5:30 PM to 10:30 PM. We liked the Sauteed Shrimp in garlic, tomato and basil with angel hair pasta. With came a grilled pork tenderloin with almonds and molasses. YUM! YUM!
