SOME MUST-DOS AROUND SAVANNAH
Known for its charm and old-world atmosphere, Savannah is the kind of place where nostalgia and contemporary coolness intermingle. While many of the Georgian must-dos and need-to-sees are historic, there are hundreds of entertaining and educational options available for travelers of all ages.
Foodies can sip a mint julep or indulge in classic fried chicken, biscuits, and a pitcher of sweet tea. Sweet treat lovers will rejoice at Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. Pop in for a sample taste of famous Savannah’s Original Pralines, saltwater taffy, or hand stretched peanut brittle.
Historians that love a good spook will find fun and mystery in one of the revered ghost tours of Bonaventure Cemetery, where ivy-laden tombs and old crypts are rumored to house all manner of ghosts and ghoulish creepers. The cemetery became famous when it was featured in the 1994 novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt.
SAVANNAH GEORGIA PORT TOUR
The Port of Savannah is ginormous, with well-over 50 piers and docks stretched across the Savannah River. The port bumps against Georgia Ports Authority and the historic Savannah Riverfront, and hundreds of ships and terminals are in operation. This Savannah Port boat tour takes history buffs on a 90-minute tour across the water to learn about the Port.
SAVANNAH NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE EXCURSION
This 3-hour on-the-water tour takes guests upriver to explore 29,000 acres of creeks, marshlands, and historic 18th century rice fields and old plantations. Guests will definitely see the beauty of the Savannah River, inclusive of diverse wildlife and a self-sufficient ecosystem.

★★★★★ “We booked the Outback Tour from the Westin in Savannah and it was the highlight of our entire trip. Our Captain was very knowledgeable of the whole area, and the staff worked hard to make sure everyone on board has a great time and an enjoyable experience.” – James C. from Selma, AL
★★★★★ “Celebrating our 15th anniversary in Savannah, we decided to take the Outside Outback Tour to explore more. Non-swimmer and adventurer here, I surprisingly dropped all of my fears and had an amazing experience on the water. It was breathtaking, and our Captain had a great sense of humor with knowledge and charisma. I couldn’t imagine it going so well without him. We learned the land histories, how to kayak, how to captain a boat, and we saw some amazing sea animals.” Libby C. from Memphis, Tennessee
