The fall months are among the best for visiting Savannah. Fall offers excellent weather, with plenty of sunshine, but not intensively hot days.
This is a city best explored on foot or by bicycle, and Savannah's fall temperatures are perfect for getting outside. Or rent a bike at Savannah on Wheels to sightsee on your own or with a tour.
Experience some of the city’s cultural festivals during autumn, with the Savannah Jazz Festival on Sept. 19-24, Oktoberfest on Saturdays from Sept. 25-Oct. 31, the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival on Oct. 14-16 in Richmond Hill, Savannah Pride on Oct. 25-29, and the Savannah Film Festival on Oct. 22-29, to name a few.
As one of the country’s spookiest cities, Savannah makes the perfect destination for a Halloween getaway. There are an array of ghost tours and paranormal experiences sure to send a shiver up and down your spine.
One such tour that celebrates Savannah's eerie and mysterious history is the Ghosts & Gravestones Trolleybus Sightseeing Tour. Ride along while listening to authentic ghost tales conveyed in chilling details.
Or take the Savannah Dark History & Ghost Encounter walking tour with Genteel & Bard. The tour begins at Oglethorpe Square and features a talented and passionate storyteller sharing some truly creepy tales.
A new addition is The Savannah Underground immersive experience, which brings the scary stories to life with a performing arts troupe. The shows are scheduled Wednesday through Saturday and are recommended for those 13 and over. Choose the Trolley Tour & Show or the Show Only.
But fall events feature more than blood and gore. Take a Halloween Hike at the Oatland Island Wildlife Center from 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 14 and 15. Trick or Treaters walk a forest trail to meet friendly animal characters who pass out goodies.
Another family-friendly event is the first-ever Forsyth Park Costume Crawl at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 30. Dress up in your scariest costumes to win prizes for the best costume in several groups: best adult; best couples; best big kid; and best little kid. There is even a best pet costume award.
