Once the turkey is devoured, the dishes are done, and the Thanksgiving feast is over, then what? If you’re looking for a few fun family events and activities in or around Savannah this Thanksgiving, look no further. There are a number of outings your family can plan with the help of Savannah Car Rentals to make plenty of memories this November.
Go the beach on Tybee Island.
Winters are warm in Savannah, which means you can still enjoy a morning or an entire day on the beach. And luckily, there is plenty of coastline accessible from the Savannah area. A local favorite is Tybee Island, a quaint and quiet barrier island just half an hours drive from downtown Savannah. Walk along the beach, swim, or enjoy the idyllic lighthouse.
Hike at Skidaway Island State Park.
Get outdoors after your Thanksgiving feast and go for a hike at Skidaway Island State Park. Just a short drive from Savannah, the park is nearby Georgia’s Intercoastal Waterway, creating the ideal ambiance for taking in the lowcountry experience of coastal Georgia. You’ll see wildlife like deer, egrets, and more, and if you’re feeling really adventurous you could rent one of their cabins for a weekend.
Visit a quaint seaside town.
Living on or visiting the eastern seaboard provides plenty of opportunities to experience the best seaside towns around. Within just a few hours’ drive, you and your family can enjoy places like St. Augustine, Florida and Charleston, South Carolina. Pack up for a weekend getaway or make an ambitious day trip to either one of these seaside towns and enjoy the history, unique culture, and fine dining offered in both. Whether you head north or south along the coast, you can’t go wrong.
Holiday lights at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens.
The Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens are a worthy trip any time of year, but especially during December for their annual December Nights & Holiday Lights event. Enjoy a tour of the gardens among beautiful light displays — with more than one million lights! Admission for adults is $10 and for children is $5. They also offer a military appreciation night. Note that this event is closed on rainy evenings.
Watch the Boat Parade of Lights on November 30.
Take in the beauty of Savannah Harbor during the Boat Parade of Lights on November 30. Head down to Savannah Harbor to watch a parade of lighted boats and to enjoy live music, a tree-lighting ceremony, and fireworks. There is no admission charge but a $10 donation is suggested.
