Historic & Romantic Savannah Vacation

Savannah is one of the most beautiful cities in the South. With moss-covered trees and cobblestone streets, historic Savannah couldn't get more romantic if it tried. Stay at Amethyst Garden right near the historic district, head out to Tybee Island to hit the beach during the day, and venture to River Street at night for the best saltwater taffy ever.

Charming Savannah

Is the picture of antebellum hospitality, thanks to period architecture and oak-lined streets. It’s tempting to spend your trip just relaxing on vast verandas and sipping mint juleps, but there are plenty of historical sites and museums to explore.

Spring time brings out the city’s best, with temps peaking in the 80s, friendly people, and plenty of sweet tea to slake your thirst. 

Family friendly Savannah

Offers a host of free activities throughout the year. Towering above Lafayette Square, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, dating back to 1799, mesmerizes visitors. The “art and soul” of the city, Savannah City Market has been a social hub since the early 1700s and offers plenty to do, while 30-acre Forsyth Park offers recreation with walking paths, playgrounds and a farmer’s market.

Each year Savannah attracts millions of visitors, who enjoy the city's architecture and historic buildings,  food, arts, music, culture, history, sightseeing, gardens, outdoor adventures, etc.
