Visit the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace

The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace home provides a gorgeous example of Victorian architecture for adults, while the girls will enjoy participating in a variety of hands-on activities that explore the founding of the organization.

Take a Tour

For a twist on the walking or trolley tour question, consider a scavenger-hunt style tour through Savannah Fun Tours, who will work with you to coordinate an itinerary the girls will find exciting and challenging

Hit the Museum

The promise of badges will make everyone excited to explore the Telfair Museum of Art, which offers a Women in Art tour that includes an optional printmaking experience. Tours must be set up in advance. Follow it up by exploring the ArtZeum at the adjacent Jepson Center, which has 22 interactive exhibits.

Creep Yourselves Out

Blue Orb Tours offers 9 p.m. tours that are practically guaranteed to be popular with older girls. Younger girls—or anyone exhausted from a day of walking all over town—should sign up for the Hearse Ghost Stories, where guides tell creepy tales as the real-life hearse rolls over the cobblestoned back streets of the city.

Visit the Beach

Nearby Tybee Island is an ideal way for the troop to blow off steam. Give them some free time on the sand, sign-up for a dolphin cruise, or make a morning out of it and pre-register for a Tybee Beaches Ecology Trips, led by a marine biologist who'll explain the ecology of the region. On your way to or from the beach, make some time to explore Oatland Island Wildlife Center, a wildlife refuge (complete with Florida panthers, alligators, and bears) that offers troop-specific programming.

Explore Fort Jackson

This old fort along the Savannah River schedules Girl Scout specific tours that give participants a crash course in marching, saluting and signal flag waving, as well as providing a demonstration in cannon firing.

Spend Lunch Learning to Cook

Kitchen on the Square offers cooking classes that will help your troop learn to cook—and then snack on—Southern style cuisine. Book a private group to tailor the workshop to your troop's badge requirements.

Make Your Own Pizzas

Your Pie allows customers to create their own customized personal pizzas—the perfect way to make a troop of picky and hungry eaters happy. After dinner, wander over to Savannah Candy Kitchen, where you and your girls can try free praline samples.

Get on Board a Boat

Set sail on Savannah Riverboat Cruises, which welcomes Girl Scouts and offers discounts for troops of all sizes. Dinner cruises offer a buffet-dinner and entertainment—for something unique, book a Monday night Gospel cruise, which offers gospel music and lowcountry fare at the buffet.
