DRINKS

  • Cocktails: Artillery — beautiful bar and amazing specialty cocktails
  • Late night drinks: Savoy Society… the vibe here is SO fun! It’s kind of a local spot so you can hopefully avoid all the bachelorette parties 😅 It’s a popular spot for SCAD students so the average age is pretty young but not in an off-putting way! It’s a blast and has great music.

EATS

  • Dinner (specifically Oysters!): Husk — it’s a super cool, old house that was renovated into a restaurant. We really liked the ambiance & decor of the upstairs bar. It’s beautiful!
  • Brunch: It’s super touristy but Collins Quarter in Forsyth Park really does live up to the hype. The food and Bloody Mary’s are delish. Husk also has a really good brunch!

TOURS

  • Savannah BikeIt’s: Not sure if you’ll have time/interest for a guided tour (if you do, I totally recommend it because it’s definitely the best way to learn about the city and the history and see the entire Historic District in one swoop) but we really liked Savannah BikeIt’s a chill and easy ride on a beach cruiser and our tour guide was great! https://www.savannahbiketours.com/
