5 Best Places to See While in Savannah

kathleen Dupuis - Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Wondering what the best places are to visit while you are in Savannah?  Here are the top five places!

 

Forsyth Park

Forsyth Park is the largest and one of the most beautiful parks in Savannah.  The Olde Savannah Inn is only steps away from this magnificent wonder. Forsyth Park was originally created in the 1840's, named for Georgia governor John Forsyth, and covers 30 acres, equip with a cafe, large field area for sports, Confederate memorials, a place for events such as the Savannah Jazz Festival, and a French inspired fountain that is a must-see in Savannah. 

 

Tybee Island

Tybee Island is located just a few miles from Savannah, with miles of beaches, great seafood restaurants, and a lighthouse built in 1773!  The Tybee museum chronicles Tybee's 400 history with relics and historical items. Make sure to visit the Pier and Pavilion for fishing, specials events, and a gorgeous view of the ocean!

 

Historic River Street

Take a stroll down Savannah's River Street and be transported back into time with cobblestone roads, trolleys, and festivals.  Enjoy some of the best of what Savannah's restaurants have to offer, sip down a refreshing adult-slushy while you walk, and stop by the many famous shops and candy stores.  The river is nothing short of amazing and is famously died green for the St. Patrick's Day celebration!

 

Bonventure Cemetery

This is not to be missed!  Huge, centuries old Magnolia trees, gothic statues, and hundreds of years of history lie in this cemetery.  Once known for it's famous statue that graced the cover of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, this 100-acre cemetery is now home to Holocaust memorials and colonial legends.  

 

The Olde Savannah Inn

Yes, that's us!   But we are truthfully a great historic sight to see in Savannah! Located on historic Gaston Street, this luxurious Savannah Bed and Breakfast has been restored to its original charm with grand chandeliers, French antiques, wrought iron gates, and a hidden garden.  This is a true hidden gem in Savannah and is one of a kind.  The Olde Savannah Inn is only a short walk from all of the other places mentioned above (Tybee is driving distance).

 

We hope this guide will help you have the best possible time while you are visiting Savannah!

See you soon!
