Best Times to Visit Savannah

The best time to visit Savannah is from March to July when warm temperatures coax the tree leaves and azalea blooms out of hibernation. A cache of festivals also fill this high season, though because the weather is ideal, hotel rates may be on the pricey side. Late winter — January and February — is low season, and the drop in temperatures comes with a drop in hotel rates. Shoulder season (mid-September to mid-November) is a sweet spot in Savannah tourism: The summer crowds clear (along with the sweltering temps) and lodging prices take a dip before the busy holiday season hits.

Key Events:

August-December

Temperatures begin falling in the late summer, as the high tourist season winds down.

This shoulder season offers plenty of diverse events and pleasant temps to match: Fall average temperatures vary between the 40s and 70s. The holiday season sees Savannah twinkling with lights and enjoying highs in the low 60s.

Key Events:

January-February

Savannah sees a drop in tourism and in temperatures in January and February. You'll also find lower hotel rates, so in many ways late winter is a great time to visit this Southern belle. Average temperatures range from the upper 30s to the lower 60s, so you'll still need some warm-weather gear.
