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.

Data sourced from the National Climatic Data Center
The popular St. Patrick's Day celebrations in March kick off Savannah's peak season. Highs creep from the low 70s up to the low 90s in July, and the warm weather is accompanied by blooming flowers and trees.
Temperatures begin falling in the late summer, as the high tourist season winds down. If you're hoping to cash in on lower lodging prices and fewer crowds, consider visiting between mid-September and mid-November. This shoulder season offers plenty of diverse events and pleasant temps to match: Fall average temperatures vary between the 40s and 70s. Plus, the holiday season sees Savannah twinkling with lights and enjoying highs in the low 60s.
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.
