We can’t deny that Savannah is one of the prettiest places in the country no matter the time of year. So bundle up, get a little fresh air, and experience some of the best of Savannah outdoors during this gorgeous time of the year.
The Savannah Historic District
You know the Savannah Historic District is a must on our list of pretty places in town. Blocks and blocks of 18th and 19th century architecture, a storied past, and plenty of spooky spots along the way, make this one of the most interesting places to see in Savannah. Plus, around this part of town you can leash up your pup and bring them along for the adventure. Don’t forget to walk along the waterfront, especially at dusk.
As part of Savannah’s north Historic District, Oglethorpe Square dates back to 1742 and is a lovely one block park sectioned out into six squares and surrounded by Regency, Georgian, and Classic Revival-style houses. Not only is this place nice to wander through on a chilly day, but there’s plenty of places to grab a coffee, a drink, or a bite to eat along your walking route to warm you up.
Colonial Park Cemetery
It’s almost impossible to have a list of must-see destinations in Savannah without a cemetery somehow making the cut. With gravestones going as far back as 1789, the Colonial Park Cemetery is a gorgeous – and slightly spooky – place to wander through on a cool winter day. Bring a jacket and a cup of coffee, and check out these remarkably interesting gravestones while paying your respects.
