On Savannah’s beach – Tybee Island – you can feel the wind on your face as you hop on a private charter with Compass Sailing! How cool is that?

Sip on a Cold One

The warm weather is just one excuse why you deserve an ice-cold beverage! Head to one of Savannah’s beer breweries to tour the facilities, sample cold brews, and learn about craft beer. Kick back and relax under a shady umbrella at one of the city's many breezy rooftop haunts, all while indulging in some icy daiquiris. Talk about living the high life! Escape to a basement bar – like The Ordinary Pub – to take a break from the sun. Your rejuvenation will be swift and effortless!

Pamper Yourself

Are you feeling the heat or are you bringing - the sizzle? Indulge in some self-care at one of Savannah's many salons or spas. Gather the girls and get your nails done at Magnolia Spa, lay back and enjoy a rejuvenating facial at Saltgrass Spa & Fitness or let the experts at The Heavenly Spa by Westin release your tension with a massage.

Stroll Through a Museum

Step into Savannah's air-conditioned sanctuaries of knowledge and culture and let your mind expand as you bask in the refreshing breeze. Beat the heat while simultaneously enriching your intellect and cultivating your taste for the finer things in life.

The Jepson Center is known for its contemporary art exhibits from around the globe, and the SCAD Museum of Art has the latest works by students in Savannah! 

Snack on Sweetness

A hot day is the perfect excuse for a cold, sweet treat! Grab a scoop of Tutti Frutti from Leopold’s Ice Cream, an ice-cold popsicle at Savannah Square Pops or a creamy scoop of gelato at District Gelato or Doki Doki Ice Creamery
