Summers in the South can get pretty hot. Luckily, Savannah and our surrounding areas have plenty of activities and fun things to help you enjoy your stay while also beating that summer heat!
Explore Savannah’s History
To really beat the heat and enjoy some cold AC during the more intense summer afternoons, explore the museums and house tours that Savannah has sprinkled throughout the squares. Whether you want to spend the day learning the unique history at the American Prohibition Museum or roam through old mansions like the Davenport House, there’s a museum waiting for you.
Savannah's Iconic Squares and Parks
In lieu of skyscrapers and busy traffic noise, Savannah offers twenty-two squares and parks sprinkled throughout the Historic District. Take a relaxing walk, sip a to-go cocktail, pack a picnic or simply close your eyes and embrace the warm breeze. You'll be hard-pressed to find anything more delightful on a summer day in Savannah!
We’re proud of our close access to the salty water that surrounds us, and during the summer, tourists and locals take advantage. Visitors can easily spend a day on our neighbor island of Tybee. Secure a spot, apply the sunscreen and get your tan on. Kiddies can play in the sand or frolic in the waves, while adults can lounge around in the cool water. For the curious, comb the beach’s sand for hidden treasures, like unique shells, smooth sea glass or even shark teeth (if you’re lucky!).
Explore By Water
The waters surrounding Savannah and Tybee Island offer a new perspective of our coastline! Whether you're into a dinner cruise aboard a Savannah Riverboat Cruise or catching glimpses of Tybee's resident dolphins on a tour with Captain Derek's Dolphin Adventure Tour or Captain Mike's Dolphin Tours, you'll have plenty of water experiences to choose from this summer!
Rent Some Water Toys
Did you know that the waters around Tybee Island have been called some of the best rivers to kayak because of their tidal changes? Check out Tybee Jet Ski & Watersports or Sea Kayak Georgia. Whether you prefer to let a motorized jet ski do all the work or you’re interested in learning how to paddleboard standing up, there’s an activity for every skill level to enjoy! By kayak, you can explore Georgia’s secret waters, Little Tybee’s nature preserve and become one with the coastal wildlife. You could even rent surfboards or boats for a day out on the water.
Take Me Out to the Ball Game
For the sports enthusiasts or just visitors looking for a fun time in Savannah, catch a Savannah Bananas baseball game! The games start in July and run through August, so check their schedule whenever you come to town. Snack on traditional baseball game fare (like popcorn, peanuts or hotdogs), put your name into drawings for cool prizes and have an awesome night with the family!
