8 Things to Do on a Rainy Day in Savannah


Rainy days can bring your plans to a halt if you’re unprepared. Although Savannah is abundant with natural beauty, there are plenty of indoor activities and things to do on a rainy day in Savannah. Don’t let gray skies stop you from enjoying all the city has to offer!

Celebrate Spirited History

Have a boozing good time at the American Prohibition Museum. Get a history lesson in the “spirit” propaganda that shaped the early 1900s, including the passing of the 18th amendment, moonshine making, anti-alcohol riots and the rise of organized crime. End the tour with an illicit speakeasy, but make sure you have the right password!

Catch a Show

Known as Savannah’s longest running theater, a little rain won’t stop the show at The Savannah Theater. This high-energy, show-stopping two-hour performance will keep you coming back for more. Experience the “Legends Live On!” show as talented entertainers pay tribute to icons such as The Beatles and Earth Wind and Fire. If a hair-raising time is more your speed, grab your thermal camera and participate in a paranormal investigation inside this historic landmark building. 

Marvel at Basilican Beauty

Stay dry by taking a self-guided tour of the historic Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist. Built in 1870, this Roman Catholic cathedral has been graciously restored and is one of the most photographed attractions in Savannah. With its breathtaking architecture and stained-glass windows, it’s an absolute must-see.  

Hop on a Trolley Tour

Uncover Savannah’s charming history with Old Town Trolley Tours. You won’t miss an inch of the city on this enjoyable and educational ride around town. A humorous and informative guide will take you on a journey of the past where you’ll learn about the historical figures and events that helped shape the city of Savannah.

Meet a B-17 Flying Fortress

The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is an outstanding tribute to the men and women of the Mighty Eighth Air Force who exemplified honor and courage during World War II. View original aircrafts and uniforms as well as interactive exhibits to honor those who fought so bravely for our future.

Take Tea Time

A rainy afternoon pairs perfectly with a warm cup of tea at The Gryphon Tea Room. Their afternoon tea provides an authentic tea time experience by offering an array of tea selections, sandwiches, scones with Devonshire cream, pastries and freshly baked goods. Nestled in Savannah’s iconic Scottish Rite Temple, the sound of the rain will only enhance the calming ambience of this historic structure.
