How to Spend 3 Days in Savannah

How to Spend 3 Days in Savannah

If you have three days in Savannah, you can enjoy a combination of tours and attractions that highlight the cultural heritage, architecture, and long history of Georgia’s oldest city. Keep reading to find out our top suggestions for a 72-hour itinerary in this Southern hotspot.

 

Day 1: Historical Introduction

Get oriented with the city on a hop-on hop-off trolley tour, which offers convenient transportation and an overview of the Savannah Historic District, a National Historic Landmark District. Trolley tours often can be combined with a Savannah River cruise for a more complete look at the city. 

Spend the afternoon on a walking tour to learn about Savannah’s history from a guide. Depending on your interests, you might opt for a themed tour, such as Savannah locations from books and movies, Civil War sites, or the Bonaventure Cemetery. At night, join a ghost walking tour to hear about local superstitions, legends, and haunted locales. For those of drinking age, haunted pub crawls are a popular way to explore the city’s nightlife.

 

Day 2: Cultural Highlights

Discover more of Savannah outside of the Historic District on a neighborhood tour to the Victorian District or Thomas Square, which each feature their own architectural gems and character. Or, go deeper into Savannah’s history as a Southern city with a visit to the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters. 

Art lovers will want to head to the Jepson Center art museum, while food lovers can sample a variety of regional fare on a culinary tour. Typically taking place on foot, food tours introduce you to restaurants and food shops where you can sample dishes such as fried green tomatoes, pork belly donuts, or pimento-cheese croissants. When sunset rolls around, the ideal place to be is on a river cruise, where you can give your feet a well-deserved rest and admire the Savannah waterfront.

 

Day 3: Coastal Adventures

Savannah’s proximity to the Atlantic coast offers a few day trip options for those ready to see more of the area. For an urban adventure, check out Charleston, a 2-hour drive away and competitor to Savannah for the most beautiful Southern city. Hilton Head Island, a 45-minute drive north in South Carolina, is a family-friendly resort destination in the Low Country known for its golf courses and beaches. Or, stay even closer to home: Tybee Island is just 30 minutes away and a favorite getaway for locals. Book a tour from Savannah with included transportation, so you don’t have to worry about getting there on your own. Some tours include cruises to look for dolphins and seabirds, and others give you free time to explore on your own.
