Written by Abstract Samm

Locals and tourists far and wide come to Savannah and can agree on one thing, we sure do love our liquor here in the city. In a normal climate, St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween and July 4th are just a few examples of those moments where we look for an excuse to enjoy a beer or six. Any other day of the year, you’d be hard pressed to not find someone with a cup in their hands with a Wet Willie’s logo on the side. While a large portion of what makes this city run is based in alcohol related tourism, there’s plenty to do around here without buying drinks. We have decided this week, to spotlight those activities. If you’re interested in finding out more about locations that do serve alcoholic drinks, refer back to our best bars and restaurants post.

Ride The Ferry

4.8 ★
First on the list, a classic activity that truly just feels like “Savannah” is supposed to, take a FREE ride on Belles Ferry. With a stop at both ends of River Street and a pretty standard, unchanging schedule, finding the time is worth it after a day of walking the cobblestones.

Royal Taxi Pedicab Ride

4.3 ★
A classic experience in Savannah has to be a ride in the back of a pedicab with a local guide who can’t wait to tell you all of the reasons they love living here. Just look for the yellow collared shirts while you’re wandering downtown, you can’t miss the giant cart on the back of their bikes. You can rest happy knowing that this is an eco-friendly alternative to cars/scooters in the city. The best part? Every ride is different because every guide is so dynamic. Don’t forget to ask about their favorite places to eat, that’s how you find out Savannah’s best kept secrets.
