Visiting Savannah, GA with kids!
Savannah, Georgia is such a fun place to visit, with all the buzz that still exists from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. There is definitely a historic feel and the amazing architecture at every turn. You might be asking yourself what is there to do with kids while you are in town? The answer is a lot!
Things to do in Savannah
There is a fantastic children’s museum in Savannah. My family and I love seeking out the local children’s museums and this one is phenomenal. The museum is located on the site of a former train station, which just adds to the allure of the museum that much more. They have weekly play-dates for younger children, as well as many other exhibits. What makes this museum unique is that it is all outdoors, so keep that in mind when you plan a trip.
If you want to see animals up close and personal head to the Oatland Island Wildlife Center. They have wolves, birds of prey and predators that are native to Georgia, just to name a few. Every year, during the first weekend in May, they have a Fairy and Gnome Festival that is fun for everyone in your family!
Take a short drive to the coast you will find yourself at Tybee Island where your family can spend a day beaching it up. Also located on Tybee Island is the Marine Center, the center is open year round. For a very reasonable fee, you and your family can take part in a walk talk and trek, where you will discover and learn about marine life native to the area.
For the Civil War buff in your group, plan a visit to Fort Pulaski National Monument. You and your family can check out the drawbridges, and old cannons. If you are up for spending the whole day, there are several different trails that you can hike giving you a unique perspective of the fort.
