Best area to stay in Savannah GA
The best area to stay in Savannah is the Historic District, where you will be right in the thick of activity. You can walk along the river, enjoy its beautiful and history filled squares, picturesque shops, as well as its array of dining options and vibrant cultural attractions. You are sure to receive a friendly and warm welcome, which comes as part and parcel of authentic southern charm.
During your stay, make sure you don´t miss out on a walk along River Street. Set in the heart of the Historic District, you will be able to explore the many shops in the famous City Market, which is surrounded by bistros, galleries, food, local musicians and boasts a lively atmosphere at night-time. Just 1km away you will find one of the most famous historical houses, the Mercer Williams house where you will find XVIII and XIX century furniture and art collections.
Broughton Street is one of the recommended options for tourists looking for somewhere to have lunch and go shopping. The Pirate´s House, a delicious open-air restaurant that has been in business since 1753, is a mandatory stop-off point. If you are looking to visit museums in the Historic District, some good options are The Davenport House Museum and The Owens Thomas House Museum. Just a 5 minute drive away you also have the SCAD Museum of Art and the Savannah History Museum.
If you travelling to the Convention Centre or you would like to cross over the river, you can take a free ferry that leaves from a set point on River Street. We also recommend you take a tram ride to get to know the district or go for a bike ride. To get to and from the airport you can take public transport, or it is a short 20 minute trip by car, which is by far the easiest option.
