Savannah Holidays​

Savannah holidays ooze the spirit of the American South, wrapping visitors lovingly in a warm Southern welcome. This historic city is pretty as a picture with its gorgeous antebellum mansions and leafy garden squares - and you can't help but get caught up in the Gone With the Wind essence of it all. But Savannah also does art and fashion, and has a distinctly naughty side when it comes to bars, clubs and night-life.

Savannah's crowning glory is its gorgeous Historic District, with some of the best preserved 18th and 19th century buildings in all America. Sit on a bench under a shady oak tree dripping with Spanish moss and lose yourself in the elegant architecture; or take a ride through the streets in a horse and carriage, listening to fascinating tales of times past as you go. Some old buildings are preserved as museums, while others have new lives as shops and restaurants - so you can take a peek inside.

There are plenty of other scenic spots, too. Forsyth Park, with its famous two-tiered fountain, is a great place to picnic while the kids let off steam in its playgrounds. The Cathedral of St John the Baptist comes complete with stunning architecture and superb stained glass. There's the 22 leafy restored squares within the Historic District to explore. And the vibrant riverfront area offers the chance to stroll by the scenic banks of the great Savannah River or take a cruise on its waters.

If it's shopping you're after, then Savannah holidays come up trumps again, and at City Market there's four blocks of restored warehouses and storefronts packed with shops and galleries. There's also unique boutiques on Broughton Street, plus pieces by talented art college students at the SCAD shop. They're one-offs - like Savannah itself..

Magnificent Museums

There's some great art about in Savannah. The Telfair Museum is a grand 19th-century mansion that provides the perfect setting for an impressive collection of 19th- and 20th-century art. And the Jepson Centre focuses on 20th-and 21st-century works, including those by Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein. It also boasts the popular Artzeum interactive family gallery.

Tybee Island

Just 20 minutes from Downtown, this laid-back barrier island provides the chance for a perfect day at the beach on Savannah holidays. North Beach is quieter with views of the Tybee Lighthouse, but the stretch near the pier and pavilion is buzzing with shops and restaurants. There's a wide strip of white sand, fishing, shell collecting, and plenty of birdlife on the salt marshes.

Bonaventure Cemetery

Perched on a bluff above the river, this haunting 150 year-old cemetery is a place of beauty, teeming with lush vegetation, and some impressive tombs and monuments. Take a tour to hear the stories behind some of the eminent Savannahians buried here; or simply wander among the graves, reading the moving inscriptions. It's more like a wonderful sculpture garden than a graveyard.

Festival Time

There are festivals going on throughout the year in Savannah, with the city's huge St Patrick's Day celebrations having almost legendary status in the South. Others to look out for are the Music Festival in March/April; the Film Festival in October; the Black Heritage Festival in February; and the Jazz Festival in September.

After Dark

Savannah is a good place to enjoy a night out, and the city's open-container policy is all in favour: it allows revellers to wander from joint to joint bearing drinks in plastic cups, known locally as 'go cups'. City Market, River Street and Broughton Street are the places to go for bars, clubs, live music and good times.
