Winter Activities In & Around Savannah
Many people think of visiting Savannah in the summer or spring, but winter is also a great time to visit Savannah and the surrounding region. For one thing, it’s the offseason so you’ll enjoy a quieter atmosphere. The weather is also a bit milder compared to the hot summer months.
Savannah and the surrounding areas boast numerous fun winter activities for individuals and families. Savannah Car Rental’s convenient and quality car rentals can help make a day or weekend trip easy this winter!
Enjoy Winter in the South
When planning a trip to Savannah or when planning a trip anywhere in the southeastern region, consider adding one of the following events or sights to your itinerary:
- Savannah Black Heritage Festival (Feb. 1-22): Savannah has an incredible Black Heritage Festival that runs through the entire month of February, coinciding with Black History Month. The festival includes various activities throughout the city all month long. This year’s festival includes an exhibition at the Savannah African Art Museum, as well as concerts, lectures, and family activities like wreath-laying ceremonies at the city’s war memorials and monuments.
- Mardi Gras Tybee (March 2): Tybee Island is just a short drive from Savannah and is known for its Mardi Gras celebration each year. The locals create a fun and festive atmosphere featuring a parade, followed by a street party featuring live entertainment.
- Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain State Park: Stone Mountain is about a four hour drive northwest from Savannah, but Snow Mountain is worth the trip. Here you’ll enjoy racing down a 400-foot tubing hill in your own tube or one that’s family-sized. There are also snow play areas for children under three, making this a great destination for the whole family.
- Cloudland Canyon State Park: Enjoy a hiking trip in the winter when temperatures aren’t as oppressive! In the very northwest corner of Georgia, Cloudland Canyon is a 5.5-hour drive from Savannah. In addition to impressive views of cliffs and canyons, the many waterfalls in the park freeze over in the winter, which make for a beautiful sight. The park also includes hiking trails, a disc golf course, and cottages to rent for a weekend spent in nature.
