While the downtown scene in Savannah is certainly worth your stay, it’s far from all the city has to offer. Cool shopping venues, exciting restaurants and memorable fun is to be had all around town. Broaden your horizion with a trip outside of Savannah's Historic District.


Eat burgers at Green Truck Pub

Named for the classic 1965 Chevy Stepside on display out front in the parking lot, Green Truck Pub is a Savannah favorite for flavorful, no-nonsense dishes made from peak-of-the-season ingredients sourced right here at home. Green Truck Pub has an impressive array of burger combos to choose from, and they even vend exceptional handmade veggie patties for vegan or vegetarian visitors. 


See a baseball game at Grayson Stadium

Grayson Stadium has been hosting the best in both major and minor league baseball since 1926. The Savannah Bananas, our home team, knock it out of the park each season.
