24 Hours in Savannah, GA

441 Bull St, Savannah, GA 31401

Savannah is the definition of southern charm. I fell in love with everything this city had to offer, almost immediately. The second we had to leave, I was already planning my next trip back! The mixture of old charm, and modern buildings all along side the Savannah River is just everything. I mean even the airport is cute. Not to mention the history of the haunted locations throughout the city.

It was a super quick 24 hours in Savannah but we packed in a lot. I’ll be sharing all my favorite spots and must see locations in this post. 

Here’s how we personally spent 24 hours in Savannah (read on for more recommendations):

Where to Stay

The Alida

I can not say enough about how cute and amazing The Alida is! I would definitely stay there again if I could. The moment you walk in, you’re welcomed with this beautiful ambient scent that instantly puts you at ease. I always love when a hotel has its own scent. The scent is inspired by the Savannah’s landscape with notes of fig, coconut, jasmine, amber and sandalwood. They even sell candles with that exact scent, so you can take a piece of your vacation back with you. 

Besides the amazing scent, we were greeted by the friendliest staff at checkin. They were just so pleasant to talk to and always smiling. They also gave us reusable plastic bottles to fill from taps located on every floor. With your choice of sparkling, cold or ambient, and even fresh fruit. Amazing right? Oh, and they gave us a $30 credit to use at any of the bars or restaurants in the hotel!

You’ll feel right at home once you step into your room. They are so beautiful with light flowing in through the windows, a picturesque window bench and beautiful wood floors. I could have stayed there forever! (We stayed in a ‘City View King” Room)

Other amenities included:

  • Pool with loungers and cabanas
  • Outdoor fire pits
  • Cornhole
  • Bikes
  • Rooftop Bar with views ‘The Lost Square’
  • Great restaurant with all day dining ‘Rhett
  • Boutique shop

What to do

With so much history and attractions in Savannah, you’ll never be bored! There are tons of walking, trolly and riverboat tours available here. Tons of ghost tours too, since the city was hit with so much tragedy due to Yellow Fever and fires.

If you like to venture on your own here are some sights to visit:

How to get around

I highly suggest walking. Savannah is an extremely walkable and beautiful city. There are 22 squares / parks basically on every other block, so it makes for a very scenic walk. I basically stopped every 10 steps to take photos.

You can also take a trolly, riverboat, Uber to Lyft.
