If you’re planning on visiting Savannah, here is a great itinerary for Day One of your trip. Our day started around 10am and took us until late in the evening. Shorten or lengthen as you see fit.
Visit the Savannah Visitor Information Centre on Bay St. Gather information on all you’d like to see.
Stroll across the street to the Cotton Exchange and walk through the shops. Check out the many monuments in the park.
Walk down the cobblestone road to River Street.
Stop and grab a treat (or two) at the Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. Try a traditional pecan praline or one of the gopher turtles. Yummy.
Hop aboard the Old Time Trolley Tour on River Street.
Hop off at The Savannah History Museum.
Hop back on the trolley and head to the City Market for lunch.
Hop back on the trolley and finish your bus tour through Savannah, ending back on River Street. Check out the Savannah Bee Company and Bob’s Your Uncle for souvenirs for you and your loved ones. Stop and have a latte and a beignet at one of the many cafes along River Street.
Finally, board a Savannah Riverboat Cruise for entertainment and dinner. Try to go on a Monday night for the Gospel Dinner cruise to hear angels sing. The choir the night we were there was so incredible they gave me chills. If you’re not from the South, chances are you’ve never heard a real gospel choir. Don’t miss out. You will not regret it.
