Outdoor Activities

Savannah begs for its visitors to stay outdoors and absorb its natural beauty. Stroll, run or bike along picturesque cobblestone streets. See gardens and fountains and sit a spell under shady trees in 22 historic squares dotting the city. Let someone else do the navigating via a trolley, horse-drawn carriage or riverboat. Tee up at one of the area’s championship golf courses, or board a charter boat to spot dolphins or go fishing. Stretch out on a sandy beach at Tybee Island, and take a dip in the Atlantic Ocean. For a different perspective, canoe or kayak a scenic river, including the Savannah, Ogeechee and Vernon, to take in the flora and fauna along salt marshes, barrier islands and swamps.  Whatever pace you choose, you’ll want to stay outdoors in Savannah.
