Plant-based foodies flock to Fox & Fig, Savannah’s first vegan café. On Broughton Street, you can chow down on satisfying plates from Kayak Café. While exploring the Victorian District, drop by the deli counter insider Brighter Day Foods, one of the neighborhood’s best-kept secrets. If you’re staying in Savannah over a weekend, be sure to browse through the Forsyth Park Farmer’s Market for local produce and artisan products.

Get Outside

Savannah’s sublime subtropical climate is conducive to plenty of outdoor activities. Walk or bike through Savannah’s Historic District or along one of its scenic paths. Check out the public tennis courts in the area or play a round of golf. Visiting during a warm spell? No problem! Take advantage of one of the area's many water sports like paddleboarding, kayaking or surfing. Or, how about a long, leisurely stroll along the shores of Tybee Island?
