About Savannah, GA Attractions
Savannah is all about attitude and atmosphere. Slow, sultry and steeped in history, the city is a visual feast, with storybook live oak trees draped in Spanish moss, magnificent 18th- and 19th-century architecture and miles of untouched marshland. The Historic District’s 22 squares are the perfect place to learn about Savannah’s past and experience the historic beauty that has made the city world famous. Visitors looking for a good scare will have plenty to do in what many call America’s most haunted city. Savannah’s numerous historic cemeteries and buildings claim frequent ghost sightings, and there are even haunted ghost tours for those who want a full-on ghoulish experience. But whether you’re interested in Savannah’s spirits or not, the haunted destinations, among them Bonaventure Cemetery, Colonial Park Cemetery and the Mercer House, are well worth a visit. Visitors who are more interested in the spiritual realm will enjoy the city's many historic sanctuaries, among them the visually stunning Cathedral of St. John the Baptist Church and Congregation Mickve Israel, the third oldest Jewish congregation in the country. Those seeking a cultural experience will find a variety of museums, from the contemporary Jepson Center to the Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Right’s Museum to the Ships of the Sea Museum. Several historic forts give visitors an idea of what the city was like during the Civil War and feature magnificent views of Savannah’s many rivers. Tybee Island, which is just a 20-minute drive from Downtown Savannah, is the perfect destination for an afternoon frolicking in the Atlantic Ocean surf.
