Getting around the central Savannah districts is easy, with many options! To explore nearby attractions, renting a car is your best option and provides the most flexibility.
Walkability: Savannah’s historic core is wonderfully walkable and a pleasure to explore on foot. Be sure to take a water bottle with you, wear comfy shoes (not flip flops or flimsy sandals) and dress in breathable clothes with a sunhat. During the hot season (April through October), the intense heat and humidity of this region must not be taken lightly!
Trolleys: The must see historic district is quite large, so do yourself a favor and buy a ticket for a “hop on/ off” trolley service (with historic tour narration) to quickly orient you to the places you want to visit on foot and linger.
Tours: Many types of tours are offered, too, from historic to haunted.
Fun Options: There are plenty of pedicabs, buses and horse-drawn carriages.
Public transit: “CAT” buses serve the city.
Free Transit: Look for “dot” stops for FREE bus ride service around the historic district including a free ride on the ‘Savannah Belles” ferries across the Savannah River!
Cycling: Savannah’s bike share, CATBike, provides a 24-hour bike rental (in 1 hour increments) from two stations for super cheap. I found some of the cobbled streets a bit difficult to navigate – so watch out!
