You’ve got the whole gang together, and some time to spare before the big day. Luckily, Savannah has no shortage of fun activities the entire family will love. Here are some unforgettable ways your crew can let loose, shake off those pre-wedding jitters and experience the many delights of Savannah.
Get the group to explore Savannah with the help of Gray Line Savannah! Cruise through the city with the top down on board the incredible convertible sprinter, or enjoy Savannah's sights on a narrated (and air conditioned!) trolley tour. Gray Line Savannah has been operating since 1910, and their tour guides know the ins and outs of Savannah's history, hauntings and quirky facts.
With Tybee Island, Savannah’s Beach just 20 minutes away, why not host a picnic on the shore? Fill up a cooler with sandwiches, snacks and ice-cold lemonade from The Paris Market, then head to quiet North Beach or to South Beach, where a strip of casual restaurants and bars are just a few steps away (in case your beach day runs right into dinnertime).
There are many great, family-friendly ways to enjoy Savannah’s gorgeous waterways. Savannah Riverboat Cruises offer leisurely tours of the Savannah River, passing by Historic River Street, Old Fort Jackson and Cockspur Island on an old-school paddlewheel boat.
Glide through salt marshes, tidal creeks and secluded beaches on a group kayak or stand-up paddleboard excursion. With the help of tour companies like Sea Kayak Georgia, you can paddle out to Little Tybee Island, an uninhabited barrier island that’s home to ospreys, feral pigs and even white-tailed deer.
Find out which member of your wedding party spooks the easiest, and discover why Savannah has been called the “most haunted city in America.” Candlelight walking tours and pub crawls will introduce you to some of Savannah’s most legendary spirits, with hair-raising results. Who you gonna call? Try Haunted Savannah Tours or, for an extra-ghoulish experience, hop in a real hearse with Hearse Ghost Ride Tours!
Here’s a grownups-only group outing you’ll never forget: Savannah Slow Ride is a double-sided, 15-person bicycle with a built-in bar platform, letting you leisurely pedal around town and stop at local watering holes when you get thirsty. Groups can customize tours to visit the bars, restaurants and attractions of their choice.
At this go-to nightspot for wedding parties, the drinks are always flowing, the crowds are always lively and the talented dueling pianists bang out songs that everybody knows the words to. Who knows? The night may even end with someone from your group up on stage!
