Out with the summer crowds, in with clear skies, warm sunshine and a palpable sense of calm. Simply ask any of our residents at The Ford and you’ll quickly realize there’s no better time of year to explore Savannah than the fall. As the heat and humidity of summer days fade, the city begins gearing up for a host of events to usher in the new season. That’s why we compiled a list of four activities to partake in this fall so you can experience the best of Savannah’s stellar weather, rich history and breathtaking lowcountry.
Spooky Ghost Tour
Nothing says fall like a haunted, Halloween-inspired ghost tour. If you’re not afraid of a bit of paranormal activity, you should definitely explore Savannah’s spooky side with the experts at Ghost City Tours and Genteel and Bard, or you can even set foot on a walking ghost and cemetery tour with Sixth Sense World. Be prepared to see the city in a whole new, supernatural light.
Historic Carriage Ride
Want to learn the history of Savannah without the fright? Then a carriage tour is perfect for you. Our friends at Savannah Carriage offer both public and private tours on their horse-drawn carriages, bringing you through eight of the city’s beautiful squares in about 50 minutes. Simply sit back, relax and enjoy the historic sights of Savannah.
More of a water person? Look no further than a riverboat cruise. Through Savannah Riverboat, you can hop aboard the Savannah River Queen or Georgia Queen for an evening of dinner, entertainment and an unforgettable perspective of the city. As soon as the weather starts to cool in Savannah, you’re guaranteed an experience unlike any other.
Savannah certainly doesn’t fall short on both indoor and outdoor museums, offering up a truly eye-opening experience in what’s considered one of America’s greatest cities for art. When the crowds clear in the fall, it’s the perfect opportunity to visit spots like the 1820s Davenport House, the contemporary Jepson Center for the Arts and the Georgia State Railroad Museum — among so many more. Better yet, plan a museum crawl for a fun fall day activity.
While its magical riverfront setting might feel like a world of its own, The Ford is just a hop, skip and jump from Georgia’s most beloved destinations. Explore our neighborhood here.
