Best Things To Do in Savannah

Much of Savannah’s charm lies in meandering through the Historic District’s verdant squares -- all 22 of them. Along the way, you’ll happen on numerous historic homes like the Mercer Williams House, popularized by Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and the Juliette Gordon Low home. There’s the famous Bonaventure Cemetery for a Spanish moss-canopied stroll, and there’s the City Market, which is an ideal place to pick up a few souvenirs. You can also take a quick car ride over to the beach at Tybee Island.
