Take a Tour
Generalized tours point out the major historic attractions, like the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, City Market and the Telfair Museums that you may want to visit later. Or take a specialized tour—there are many that cater to specific interests, from the African-American experience in Savannah to the city's culinary tradition. Jump on a trolley—and read up on various special-interest experiences—at the Savannah Visitors Information Center.
Absorb the Culture at the Museum
Spend an afternoon wandering the Telfair Museums, comprised of the Telfair Academy (19th and 20th century art), the Jepson Center for the Arts (contemporary art, as well as the kid-friendly interactive ArtZeum) and the Owens-Thomas House (a historic home). Three-site admission is available for one-time entry to all three museums, allowing you to browse one today, and leave the rest for tomorrow.
Wander City Market
Originally the trading center for Savannah, today, this area houses a collection of cafés, restaurants and local shops. At one end of City Market is Ellis Square, where local artists often offer impromptu performances, and where its fountain provides plenty of cooling-off opportunities for any kids (or kids at heart) in your group.
