Bordering Skidaway narrows and the Georgia Intracoastal Waterway, this Skidaway Island State Park campsite is where you want to be for Valentine’s Day – it’s beyond beautiful! Whether you’re cozied up in a tent or getting warm next to a fire, camping together is the perfect local getaway. Check availability online to book your romantic, outdoor retreat. 

Taste-Test Your Way Through Town

You’re in Savannah! Which means there’s insanely good food on practically every street block. Instead of opting for a single fancy dinner with your Valentine’s Day date, go for something way more interactive and fun. Share an artisan burger at Sly’s Sliders and Fries and split an order of chili cheese fries at The Naked Dog. Then head over to try the Street Corn Cob from Bull Street Taco before wrapping up the night with something sweet from Savannah's Candy Kitchen.
