This one-day Savannah itinerary takes you on a whirlwind tour of Georgia's historic city center and the River Street districts. Full of historic homes, historic sites and old Southern charm, Savannah is full of history and is a great choice for a day trip to the American South. Today, a tour of the Owens-Thomas begins in the slave quarters before crossing an English-style garden to the big house. Winter temperatures are mild, generally around 60°F during the day and 40°F at night, so it's a good time to do activities that would be unpleasant in summer, such as hiking.
In fact, I think we would have followed our guide Joe around Savannah for the rest of the day if he had left us.
