Welcome to Savannah. One of the South’s most eccentric cities is a charming escape, where quirkiness materializes through art, period architecture houses trendy boutiques, ghost stories are set under a veil of Spanish moss, and where local cuisine comes straight from Georgia’s coast.
“Savannah has been enticing visitors for centuries, and as the quintessential Southern city, tour groups are welcomed with open arms,” said Mindy Shea, director of tour & travel sales at Visit Savannah. “They’ll experience not only the city’s top tours and attractions, but through special programming, (groups) will have unique opportunities to be immersed in the history that is uniquely Savannah’s.”
The Olde Pink House and The Pirates’ House
Food writers and visitors alike can’t stop talking about Savannah’s vibrant and burgeoning culinary scene. Groups can eat their fill at an avant-garde new eatery, or at a classic dining experience like The Olde Pink House or The Pirates’ House. Savannah is widely known for its warm hospitality, so be sure to settle in and get ready to fill up on fresh, local cuisine.
Old Savannah Tours, Old Town Trolleys and Savannah Riverboat
Downtown Savannah has 22 lush historic squares, each one different from the rest, while telling its own distinct story. Get the group its bearings with a fun, historic trolley ride through town with Old Savannah Tours or Old Town Trolleys. Or, take in the serenity of the riverfront with a delicious meal on a Savannah Riverboat cruise.
American Prohibition Museum
Savannah’s newest attraction is the American Prohibition Museum in the City Market district, and it is the only museum of its kind in the country. The historical venue shares over 20 exhibits, ranging from gangsters to rum runners, and it includes a period-authentic speakeasy accessible nearby.
Savannah is home to Telfair Museums, the oldest public art museum in the entire South. The Telfair’s sister properties include the Owens-Thomas House, which shares a look into early 19th-century low country life, and the Jepson Center for the Arts, an architectural masterpiece featuring a variety of revolving exhibits of fine arts, photographs and technology.
