The Georgia coast is known for its overwhelmingly friendly locals and relaxed atmosphere. Whether you want to explore the many options for observing wildlife, relax on the beach, or check out the historical and cultural attractions, the Georgia coast has it all!
Here are a few suggestions of thing to do along the Georgia coast:
Savannah: This quaint city packs a surprising punch with beautiful colonial buildings, great nightlife, and classic Southern charm.
Blackshear Civil War Prison Camp: This historic site offers regular tours throughout the year.
Plum Orchard Mansion: This historic estate is just over 100 years old.
Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens: This farm has the most comprehensive collection of bamboo for public viewing in the country.
Savannah National Wildlife Refuge: This 29,000 acre area has plenty of options for hiking and observing wildlife.
Go to the Beach: You can't spend time on the Georgia coast and not spend at least a day soaking up the rays.
With more than 200 events and festivals held in Savannah throughout the year there's sure to be something to do whenever you visit. Some of the biggest events include the Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens in March, the Savannah SantaCon in December, and the Polar Bear plunge of January. There are also plenty of things to do in the rest of the state and in nearby South Carolina if you are up for exploring beyond the Georgia coast. Both Tybee Island and Hilton Head Island are less than an hour away by car.
No matter time of year you visit or what your budget is, there's a vacation rental along the Georgia coast that's right for you. Book a villa with ocean views, rent a trendy apartment downtown, or treat yourself to a luxury condo where you can relax in style.
