Fall or Winter Getaway to Savannah

Savannah is a popular destination year-round in part thanks to our mild fall and winter temperatures in Savannah averaging highs of 78 to 60 degrees between October and January with lows around 56 to 40 degrees. So, you’ll find plenty of outdoor festivals and events to enjoy as you escape the winter (or winter is coming) blues. We’ve rounded up our favorites that feature great food along with entertainment, cultural, or shopping slants that are sure to leave you satisfied.

While the event skews heavily toward seafood with fish tacos, fried shrimp, crab cakes, shrimp & grits, gator and crawfish, you can still find some good ol’ Southern BBQ, hamburgers, hot dogs, and plenty of desserts. Pair these items with arts and crafts plus live music and performances…

This happened in a large part to provide protection for Carolina from Florida, which was controlled by Spain at the time.

Spend the Day on Tybee Island, Savannah’s Beach

Tybee Island is a must-see if you are visiting Savannah. It’s just a short drive outside of the city, and it’s a great destination with lots of activities.
