See the city from the water by catching a river cruise in the harbor. If you have a sweet tooth, stop by the well-known River Street Sweets to try the world-famous pralines or fresh saltwater taffy.

Where to stay in Savannah

In the old town's grid-like streets, a host of independent inns and guesthouses offer comfortable rooms, complimentary breakfast, and convenient access to the best attractions in Savannah.
