7 Quirky Things You’ll Find in Savannah Back to Top

To-Go Cups

Can’t finish your alcoholic drink or just want another for your walk? Ask for a to-go cup at any pub or restaurant, and you can sip as you stroll through Savannah’s Historic District.

Ghosts

Trolley rides, walking tours, hearse tours and paranormal investigations are just a few of the ways to explore “America’s Most Haunted City.”

Drag Queens

Lady Chablis, a drag queen made famous in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, still performs once per month in the nightly drag show at LGBT favorite Club One.

Squares

Twenty-two squares each with a different personality are laid out in a grid pattern through Savannah’s Historic District. Visitors can spend the whole day hopping from square-to-square to explore history and see beautiful sights.

Spanish Moss

This air plant hangs from the live oaks that cover downtown Savannah, adding a sense of mystery to the scenery. Just don’t touch it—Spanish moss is home to several bugs!

St. Patrick’s Day Parties

Savannah has one of the largest Saint Patrick’s Day parties in the country. Tens of thousands of people come to celebrate at the annual three-hour (or longer) parade and with live music and lots of open containers.

Pirates

Between Tybee Island’s annual Pirate Festival, Savannah’s Pirate’s House restaurant and hundreds of years of pirate lore, visitors aren’t far from a pirate costume, actor or maybe even the ghostly remains of one.
