With the gorgeous weather, and moderate temperature, we enjoyed walking through all of the quarters of the historic distric of Savannah, GA! We were able to walk to all the treasures of this beautiful place!
Savannah is one of our favorite city to visit! The historic district is lovely and lively! Also, such a great place for photography hobbiest! We love that we can walk everywhere, too! Plenty of places to stop, shop and grab a bite to eat &...More
I’ve never been to Savannah and had 5 hours before my flight so I cruised the streets and felt really relaxed. There are so many nice places to visit and there are great water views along the pier. I drove down the cobble stone path...More
I would recommend the hop on, hop off historic tour to anyone who would like to get up close and personal with historic Savannah. Old Town Trolley Tours has 15 stops which allows you to get out and explore the city yourself then pick you...More
One of the most interesting cities in America. Savannah should be very proud of the exhaustive efforts to preserve historic houses, homes and buildings that characterize an era gone by. We were enchanted.
The Savannah Historic district is beautiful. The drive along abercorn St to downtown is very nice. Lots of Spanish Moss. Old preserved homes. City Market has restaurants and shopping. River Street has great views and lots of cobblestone. Loved that restaurants on River St have...More

This response will be from the perspective of being in the Historic Section only. A few hours will be hard to do it justice and take it all in. But...parking around Lafayette Square is on-street only and is generally available without too much hunting. Some of the side streets prohibit parking on particular days of the week for street cleaning and refuse collection but they are well marked. There is a trolly stop in front of the cathedral for the on-off tours. You can do a self-tour of the cathedral or request one (except Sundays when Mass is held). A walking ghost tour starts in the park at dusk. If you want a horse drawn carriage ride of the area, they are plentiful with advance scheduling. Abercorn is a good street to use as a source to orient yourself.
The Olde Pink House is a traditional stop for a Southern meal and is good (suggest reservations). There are many other choices on TripAdvisor including some new South culinary dishes, like the Treyler Park Hitch. We liked
J. Christopher’s near the Cathedral, which provides a standard, but delicious fare. We stayed at the Hamilton-Turner Inn facing Lafayette Park and we’re delighted with it. If you can stay at least one night I think you will like it. Good luck.
