What's cool for a 19 year old to do?

by MochaShake

My 19 year old son and I will be visiting Savannah in July. What can he do to have some fun, without Mom hanging around with him? We'll be there for a Wednesday through Friday. (Volunteering for a sea turtle research project for the week after).

Drinking age is 21. So most bars are off limits. Restaurants do serve alcohol and allow under 21.If your staying at the beach. Daytime would be the beach. A tour of Fort Polaski for both of you. If your downtown, night time would be Mellow Mushroom ( only in name )pizza place at 11 W Liberty. SCAD students frequent their and they do have pretty good pizza . Savannah College of Art & Design is world famous and has renovated more of Savannah than any other group. 18 to 24 year olds from all over the world. Spend the extra money on a cab back to the hotel. Also the night ghost tour of Savannah, a walking tour, is pretty good.

RE: What's cool for a 19 year old to do?

My wife and I recently visited Savannah from another haunted Georgia town--Athens. We had done some homework in advance of our trip and found that there were tons of expected sites about tours in Savannah that are quite obviously trying to "sell" you something instead of really weighing out distinctive experiences. No shocker there right? By weeding through such things, it seemed that one guy stood out in Savannah in so far as ghost tours go. We weren't really looking for one because at first glance they sound a bit hoaky, but my wife and I have had our own experiences and so we were at least curious about what Savannah might hold in this regard or could offer us so we went in with an open mind. Anyway, in our research on the net and our calls placed to town, we kept getting the name Shannon Scott and Sixth Sense Savannah ghost tours and we had a strong suspicion that his product was our best bet. Well, we couldn't have been more right! What a tour! This guy is not only a fantastic entertainer, but is obviously very well thought out about history, life and death and the spirit world. We went in really not sure what to expect. We had our own ideas that we might be getting the whole, "on a dark and stormy night" but found ourselves surprised that this tour was something completely different and had a life all of its own. Shannon has been a tour guide in Savannah for 15 years or so and has been doing "ghost" tours for the past 10. But his tour was so indepth about history, mystical heritages of the world, Georgia and Savannah and his stories 95% of the time were based on his own experiences in various historical properties. I think its safe to say that Shannon is more than a great tour guide. He's a great teacher and unparalleled folklorist. He really brought Savannah to life for us. It was more like a religious experience and I hope others will take the chance to experience it for themselves.

Travel Tips for Savannah

Masterful Iron Work

by Pawtuxet

You couldn't take a picture of every beautiful example of iron work in Savannah. There are so many fabulous entrances, railings, scrollwork adorning more scrollwork. It's a pleasure to just walk the streets of the district discovering something beautiful everywhere you turn.

The American South has a...

by acemj

The American South has a tradition of great writers from Faulkner to Styron to Welty. Flannery O'Connor is one of the most important of all. Reading her stories gives you a sometimes odd glimpse into life in the South. Her childhood home is in Savannah on E. Charlton St.

Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist

by cobrioc

This is the oldest Roman Catholic church in Georgia and seat of the Catholic Diocese of Savannah. It was organized in 1799 and erected its first house of worship on Liberty Square. A second and larger church was built on Drayton Street, at Perry, in the 1830's. In 1876, the first rendition of the current Victorian Gothic Cathedral was built. This structure was unfortunately destroyed by fire in 1898. The cathedral was rebuilt, based on the original design, by architects Baldwin and Price within the framework of the original walls. The cathedral has several notable elements including magnificent stained glass windows from Innsbruck Austria, wall murals, Sarouk Persian rugs, a high alter of Italian Marble and coats of arms of Pope John XXIII and Bishop Thomas J. McDonough

Savannah's favorite restaurant... ask any local!

by spoonee8 about Spanky's Pizza Galley and Saloon

If you're looking for a laid-back place to relax, and meet with friends, then this is the place. What makes things even better is the fact that the food here is great; it's made fresh and it's very affordable. With a spacious and comfortable interior, Spanky's also has a great bar with bartenders than can satisfy your need for that special drink. The chicken fingers with "spuds" should not be missed... make sure you ask for the special honey to go with it. Not to be outdone, the pizza that they create here is second to none. I recommend the thin crust style. A "small" sized pizza is actually enough for two people to eat. Wash it all down with Savannah's famous "sweet tea" and you'll see why this is Savannah's favorite restaurant.
