ATTRACTIONS

Plan your good eats around some of these noteworthy Savannah attractions:

Savannah Visitor's Center - The visitor center is a great starting point for your trip to Savannah. It offers an interesting audio-visual overview of Savannah, as well as organized tours, and self-guided walking, driving and bike tours, free maps and brochures on local attractions. It is a good place to park your car while exploring the historic district, and is also the starting point for most of the guided tours. Open Daily.

City Market - Located between Barnard, Congress, & Bryan Streets, four blocks in the heart of the Historic District have been renovated to capture the authentic atmosphere and character of the city's old open marketplace.  There are also restaurants, open-air cafes, jazz clubs, theme shops, and stores offering crafts, accessories and gifts. You can also catch a carriage tour through the Historic District right there at the gazebo in City Market.

Ellis Square - Located on Barnard between Bryan and Congress Streets, right next to City Market, was named after Henry Ellis, second Royal Governor of the Georgia Colony.  With renovation completed in February of 2010, the park features open space for public concerts, a ground fountain where children are usually found playing, an underground garage for parking, and a bronze statue of songwriter-lyricist Johnny Mercer.  

River Street - Located below Bay Street and bordering the thriving river port, River Street imparts old-world charm. The nine-block brick concourse is ideal for strolling and ship watching.  More than 75 boutiques, galleries, artist's studios, restaurants and pubs are housed in one time cotton warehouses that have been restored to their rustic beauty.  

Forsyth Park - Between Bull and Gaston Streets, this 30 acre park is bordered on the north by Gaston Street, on the south by Park Avenue and has a one mile perimeter popular among outdoor enthusiasts.  Names in 1851 for Georgia Governor, John Forsyth, the park is home to a cast iron fountain that was erected in 1858 and designed to resemble the grand fountain in Paris at the Place de la Concorde.  The park is also adorned by monuments to the Confederate Soldier and the Marine Corps, there is a Spanish-American Monument, and the Fragrant Garden for the Blind.  The Forsyth Park Fountain is one of the most visited attractions by visitors in Savannah.
