Top Rated Attractions in Savannah

Search Radius (Miles)
University of Georgia Marine Extension Service Marine Education Center and Aquarium

This aquarium serves as a resource for educators, students and the public on coastal Georgia marine ecosystems. Featuring exhibits on tidal creek, salt marsh, ocean environments and 14 tanks containing native species, the center is the only saltwater aquarium open to the public in Georgia. Kids can climb aboard a model shrimp boat that is part of an exhibit on the shrimp industry. Take a hike on two trails through forest and along the marsh.

Skidaway Island State Park

Six miles southeast of Savannah is the 500-acre (202 hectare) Skidaway Island State Park, a barrier island and a perfect day-trip for the Savannah visitor wanting to get to know the natural ecology of coastal Georgia. Facilities at the park include a museum, picnic shelters, a playground and observation towers. Tent, trailer and RV sites are available for overnight camping. Two nature trails provide visitors a chance to view the spectacular environment and watch for wildlife, especially shore birds. There is a nominal charge per vehicle daily for parking.

Old Fort Jackson

Originally an earthen fort established during the Revolutionary War, Old Fort Jackson's brick structure was built in 1808, and was further developed between 1845 and 1860. The fort sits on the bank of the Savannah River and is surrounded by a moat. Visitors may explore the tunnel-like passageways that used to house soldiers and store ammunition and supplies. The moated forts overhead and interior cannons are the structure's prime attractions. The cannons are fired during the summer months when the site gets its maximum turnout of spectators.

Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum

A collection of model ships and maritime paintings fills this museum dedicated to the sea. Even the building has a nautical history. The William Scarborough House was built in 1819 for the president of the Savannah Steamship Company, who was responsible for building the SS Savannah, the first steamship to cross the Atlantic Ocean. A model of the Savannah is on display, as is one of a sinking Titanic and many more ships. Be sure to stroll through the beautiful garden that spans 2 acres (0.81 hectares) in area.

Wormsloe Historic Site

Wormsloe Plantation is worth a visit if only to see the welcoming mile-long driveway lined with huge live oak trees. Located approximately 10 miles (16 miles) southeast of downtown Savannah, the plantation was established in 1737 by Noble Jones, one of the first British colonists who arrived in Georgia with General James E. Oglethorpe. A plantation house built in 1828 stands at the site, as does the remains of the original house built by Noble. A museum displays artifacts.

Davenport House Museum

Completed in 1820, this handsome building on Columbia Square is one of the city's finest examples of Federal architecture. Its proposed destruction in 1953 caused such a public outcry that seven local women raised over $20,000 to prevent it. The first, second and third floors of this American Federal-style house has since been restored and has opened as a museum since 1963, featuring artifacts that will educate and enrich visitors’ knowledge of Savannah and its community.
