8 Must-Do Spring Activities for First-Time Savannah Visitors

Savannah’s beauty practically sings in the springtime, with great weather making it prime time to stop and smell the flowers. There are plenty of other activities to enjoy as well.

 

Stroll the Squares

Our 22 historic squares get a lot of attention for a good reason, with giant oaks and sparkling fountains. Charming homes surround each square, along with historic churches, restaurants, shops, and museums. Forsyth Park is the most well-known, but visit some of the others.

 

Dine Al Fresco

There is nothing quite like sitting on a restaurant patio and soaking in the Savannah vibe. Grab a pizza at Vinnie Van Go Go’s. One of our personal favorites is Vic’s on the River, with a patio that boasts centuries-old oaks. Check out a bird’s eye view at Rocks on the Rooftop in the Bohemian Hotel. Honestly, walk along any historic street, and you’ll find an excellent restaurant with outdoor seating and delicious menu items.

 

Have a Shopping Adventure

From boho-chic to locally made art to upscale fashion, Savannah’s stores and specialty boutiques do not disappoint. City MarketRiver Street, and Bull Street make for a beautiful day of browsing and buying. As with eateries, there is something new to discover around each corner.

 

Explore Our Churches

Some of the holiest days of religious calendars occur during springtime. This year, Palm Sunday falls on March 28; Easter on April 4, and Passover on March 27-April 4. Attend a service at one of our beloved, historic churches. The towering steeples of Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist grace the Savannah skyline. The First African Baptist Church, believed to be home to the oldest continuous African-American congregation in America, started in 1777. Congregation Mickve Israel is the third oldest Jewish congregation in the U.S., dating to 1733.
