Whether you’re traveling alone, with your family, or are in Savannah for a romantic getaway, don’t miss Savannah’s colorful nightlife. Why not begin with a relaxed dining experience at the Crystal Beer Parlor? The Crystal Beer Parlor is Savannah’s second oldest restaurant, opened in 1933 during the Great Depression. A gathering spot for locals and visitors alike, it is known for its casual and delicious fare. Many say that their burgers are some of the best in town. Or, for a cozier dinner, call ahead to one of the pricier restaurants, such as Elizabeth’s on 37th, or Garibaldi’s, to order a delicious dinner to bring back to your room at one of the many romantic Bed and Breakfasts that Savannah has to offer, such as The President’s Quarters Inn. Located in Savannah’s historic district, at 225 E. President Street.
The President’s Quarters Inn boasts 16 richly appointed suites with decorative fireplaces and unparalleled amenities. This attractive getaway is pet and family friendly, and it’s convenient location allows you to walk through majestic oak- draped parks to numerous Savannah sights, such as River Street and City Market, where window-shopping is always a pleasure. Many downtown stores are open until 9:00 p.m., but it is best to call ahead if there is a specific store you would like to visit.
If you’d rather ride than walk, try an evening ride in a horse drawn carriage, where drivers recount to you Savannah history, both old and new. The sound of the horses’ hooves along brick paved streets lined with many architectural beauties dating back to the early 1800’s, creates a soothing memory you are sure to keep long after you return home. During the summer, when the days are warm and humid, it is best to enjoy one of these carriage rides at night.
Or, for a breezier adventure, try calling Savannah Pedicab. Riding in a pedicab is a unique and fun way to enjoy the nightlife scene in Savannah. You will quickly be transported to the downtown destination of your choice, while enjoying all the nightlife sounds, smells and colors as you go. Why not put the kids in one, along with your pet too (Savannahians are known for their love of dogs), and head to an old-fashioned ice cream shop, such as Leopold’s Ice Cream on Broughton? Even if you don’t ride with your pet, you’ll create a lasting memory for sure.
The more adventurous in your group might enjoy the Savannah nightlife by hopping on a trolley or riding in a hearse for a ghost tour. This is sure to be a unique and memorable way to enjoy Savannah at nighttime. Savannah is considered by some to be one of the most haunted cities in America and there are several companies that offer ghost tours in the downtown historic district, such as Old Town Trolley’s Ghost and Gravestone Tour or Hearse Ghost Tours. Or, try a Midnight Walking Tour that goes from 10 p.m. to midnight Friday through Sundays only. The Historic Savannah Theatre also enhances nightlife in Savannah. Their new show for the summer of 2013, The Beat Goes On, celebrates all the hit songs from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Or, hop on a Savannah Riverboat Dinner Cruise or Moonlight Entertainment Cruise on the Savannah River.
