Outside Date Ideas in Savannah Ga 2022 black

• • OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES • •

No one says that a proper date requires spending tons of money, especially in a city so picturesque as Savannah. Even taking a walk can be like something out of the movies. No really, we mean the actual movies. If you check back through some of our older posts, you can learn a thing or two about how often filmmakers find themselves in the area. Here is a selection of gorgeous areas in the Historic District that you will want to walk on any day. Even winters are mild here in south Georgia, so you’re sure to even find a sunny afternoon in early February. Savannah might not be the largest city, but you’ll soon find out that there is more than enough ground to cover.

Romantic Picnic & Walk in Forsyth Park

4.8 ★
Regarded by locals and tourists alike as the most aesthetic picnic spot in the entire city, Forsyth Park is iconic to Savannah. This park is a favorite for weddings, photos and plenty of exciting entertainment no matter what time of day. Spanish moss everywhere and always some sort of event happening, Forsyth is the place to settle down with a basket and enjoy the sun for an afternoon. Prime for a romantic, relaxing, and serene date. Forsyth truly shows off what makes Savannah so incredible every day.

If a public date in a crowded area does not seem too appealing then fear not Savannah is home to over 20 historic squares. For those who wish to be in a more intimate setting, Whitefield square is a wonderful spot that is never too packed but promises just as incredible of a view. People walk, birds sing and there is always a shady spot to be found on the benches. No one can go wrong with a classic picnic in the Historic District, no matter what square is chosen.

Soak in River Street

4.9 ★
Take an almost mile long walk down the beautiful riverside in one of Savannah’s most dense and eclectic districts. Savory sweets, fun treats, fancy (or cheap) drinks, and food options for days!

Even before the new Plant Riverside District was constructed, River Street has always been a top option for date night. Wet Willies, Savannah Candy Kitchen and restaurants of all kind pair up with local historic landmarks, giving you something to do and talk about while wandering.

Beach Side Romance at Tybee

4.9 ★
Catch a view of the east coast just twenty minutes outside of the city with a trip to the infamous Tybee Island. After setting the scene for movies like Baywatch, Magic Mike XXL and The Spongebob Movie, Tybee Island has become somewhat of a hot spot for film makers and its not hard to see why. Tybee Island is a beautiful piece of land no matter what end of the beach is in question. Take a swim in the afternoon or wake up early for a sunrise photo op at the end of the pier. Walk along the beach and draw hearts in the sand, collect shells or just have a seat and rest on one of the many beach side benches. Tybee is picture perfect no matter what time of the day, and nothing compares to the view of the Atlantic Ocean from the pier’s edge. Avoid crowds by heading towards the southern side of the island and find the perfect water’s edge getaway. Regardless of what end of the sand, there is a nice spot to just enjoy the regularly beautiful weather that east coast beaches generally have to offer.
