When it comes to having fun, exploring, sightseeing, eating, and pretty much anything else, Savannah is here for it all. In fact, Savannah is so well known for its hospitality that it’s been nicknamed “Hostess City of the South”. So let’s lace up those walking shoes and tour around your favorite city for a seriously good time.

1. The Coffee Fox

Get a head start on the day by swinging by The Coffee Fox (they open as early as 8 AM). Treat yourself to a locally crafted cup of PERQ coffee, whether that’s an americano, a latte, or a cafe au lait, and pair it with a tasty scone. 

2. River Street

After your caffeine boost, walk a few blocks north to explore the retail boutiques and walk along River Street for some awesome views of the waterfront. Take your time browsing through the shops at River Street Market Place between coffee and lunch time.

3. The Naked Dog Savannah

For lunch, you’ll definitely want to check out The Naked Dog Savannah, which opens at 11 AM. It’s a food shack right on the waterfront with mostly far from “naked” gourmet hot dogs. Go for the Slaw Dog or try the Trailer Park Dog.

4. First Squares Food Tour

If you want to skip the hot dogs and go straight for an all-out food tour experience, then you’ve got to do this three-hour First Squares Food Tour. For just under $60, you’ll be led on a taste-testing adventure through Savannah. You can start anywhere between 11:15 AM and 1:30 PM)..

5. Sightseeing Trolley Tour of Savannah

Ready to give your feet a break? Old Savannah Tours offers a 90-minute trolley tour through the city. For around $30, you can sightsee your way through town, sans the sore feet. Tours depart in 15-20-minute intervals between 9 AM and 5 PM.

6. Dinner at The Olde Pink House

When dinner time rolls around, The Olde Pink House is where you want to be. They open at 5 PM, and we definitely recommend a reservation in advance as this is one of the most popular dinner spots in Savannah. Start off with an order of oysters then get right to the main course. Try the Sauteed Shrimp and Scallops, the Fried Pork Chop, or the Chef’s Fried Chicken.

7. Spooky Savannah’s Haunted Pub Crawl & Ghost Tour

Finish the night off with a pub crawl and ghost tour all packed into one outing(from 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM, Thursday through Saturday. For around $30, this tour will guide you through some of Savannah’s spookiest history as you walk through haunted bars and pubs.
