Student artists from all over the world are drawn to the Savannah College of Art and Design. Shop for a unique souvenir at ShopSCAD, a gift shop offering only items created by SCAD students. Other SCAD graduates have started businesses in Savannah like satchel., a handmade leather goods studio and boutique. At Starlandia Creative Supply, artists can shop for new and reclaimed materials from clay and paints to envelopes, thread, clothes patterns, beads, feathers and more.
Savannah on Wheels
There are many ways to tour the city, including Segways, pedicabs and trolleys, but one of our favorites is on two wheels. Adventure Tours in Motion provides the tour, the guide and the segway to criss-cross the 22 historic squares with a rolling concierge and cover twice the distance as on foot.
There's Music in the Air
Music fans will love the variety of sounds available all over town. Savannah Smiles Dueling Piano Bar has been delighting visitors since its opening more than 15 years ago. Rancho Alegre Cuban Restaurant serves up fresh jazz sounds alongside boliche and croquetas, and those who want to spin their own records will love shopping Graveface Records & Curiosities in the Starland District, where new and used vinyl, cocktail supplies, vintage toys and even musical equipment live in creepy and creative harmony.
Got Plans Tonight?
For an after-dinner drink, drop into funky El-Rocko Lounge. Spinning retro music and sporting 70s-style décor, this night spot offers patrons transportation back to the disco era with a far-out vibe. For super-relaxed food and drinks, Treylor Park on Bay Street provides a unique take on comfort food. Order PB&J chicken wings or fried Oreos and sip on an “illegally blonde” or “recliner” cocktail while you wait. Don’t forget to order a second round: north of Gaston Street, you can take your drink to go!
