14 Things To Do In Savannah, GA

From the shores of the Savannah River to the streets of the Savannah Historic District, Savannah features enough history, culture, adventure, and entertainment for all takers.

Here are 14 fun things to do in Savannah, GA:

1. Spend some time in the great outdoors at Forsyth Park – the largest park found in Savannah’s Historic District. Forsyth Park is great for a day spent under the sun with frequent concerts, farmers' markets, and all-around outdoor recreation.

2. Golfers visiting Savannah, be sure to pack your clubs and hit the links at Club at Savannah Harbor. This public golf course features 18 scenic holes, perfect for the pros, first-timers, and everyone in between.

3. The Savannah Historic District is widely known as the largest National Landmark District in the United States, offering walking tours, carriage tours, the Ghosts and Legends tours, and so much more.

4. Sports fans visiting during the summer time are encouraged to take in a Savannah Sand Gnats baseball game at Grayson Stadium. The Sand Gnats are the minor league baseball affiliates of the New York Mets.

5. South Beach on Tybee Island features five miles of sandy beach front, cool ocean waters, views of the Atlantic Ocean, and of course, endless amounts of beach fun for the entire family. Pack your swim trunks, some sunscreen, and hit the beach – admission free.

6. Originally opened in 1818, the Historic Savannah Theatre still puts on some of the most entertaining performances in Savannah. The theater is found in the Chippewa Square in Savannah’s Historic District, lending to the already abundant historical presence.

7. Southern charm and Savannah history are alive and well at the First African Baptist Church – featuring some dazzling southern architecture dating back to approximately 1777 when the congregation was originally organized and the church was constructed shortly thereafter.

8. Owned by famous food icon and television star, Paula Deen, the Lady & Sons Restaurant is seating tables and serving up delicious, down home meals year round. Reservations are encouraged.

9. Chock-full of Savannah history and tasty brews, the Olde Pink House Restaurant and Tavern was originally built in 1789. This local-favorite attraction is said to house the ghostly presence of mansion’s owner, James Habersham Jr. on certain days, but that hasn’t stopped visitors from enjoying a delicious meal and beverage – ghosts and all.

10. Oatland Island Wildlife Center is an adventurous destination in Savannah, housing some of the region’s native wildlife and one-of-kind scenery only found on the Georgia Coast. This wildlife preserve is a great place to bring the family.

11. Pay your respects at Fort Pulaski National Monument – a once-active military base turned standing tribute to the Civil War – located on Cockspur Island along the Savannah River.

12. The Southside Billiard Club is so much more than your average pool hall. Featuring 21 pool tables, a lengthy and delicious menu, frequent amateur and professional billiard events, and no shortage of good times, this pool hall has been a favorite destination for locals and visitors alike for the last 20 years.

13. Opened in 1921, the Lucas Theatre For the Arts has been entertaining and wowing audiences ever since. The historic theatre frequently screens beloved cinema classics, puts on awe-inspiring concerts, and hosts the Savannah Film Festival every year.

14. Given its namesake, the Squares of Savannah are made up of 22 historic, park-style squares found throughout the city. The squares are popular among travelers for their sight seeing and recreational and historic appeal.
