Savannah Attractions


Savannah is the oldest city in the state of Georgia and a favourite among visitors of the old South. Known for its eccentricities, its old-world style and entertainment; this coastal city promises Southern hospitality, culture and a good time!

Established in 1733, Savannah is rich in history and culture, offering visitors a unique holiday experience with lots to see and do. For those with a keen interest in the history of the city and one of the largest National Historic Landmark districts in the US, there are many wonderful museums and galleries. The Savannah History Museum gives visitors an excellent introduction to the city of Savanah, while Fort Jackson, Georgia's oldest standing fort, offers historical demonstrations and cannon firings giving visitors a dynamic historical experience.

Lovers of the arts should definitely visit the Telfair Museum of Art which is known throughout the state for its paintings, sculpture and decorative arts by both American and European artists. Beauty extends beyond gallery walls when in Savannah, as the exquisite buildings lining the streets, give testament to. History, culture and astounding architecture aside, Savannah is also known for its exciting nightlife. Not lacking in restaurants, or evening entertainment, the jazzy streets always promise something to see and enjoy when the sun goes down.
