Things To Do During Summer In Savannah

Savannah in Summer

Before air-conditioning, as the low country summer heat and humidity descended upon coastal Savannah, residents who were able headed up to summer homes in the cool high country of North Carolina.  It’s different today.  Savannah, with its astounding historic heritage, collection of house museums and intriguing coastline, is a fascinating and fun place to visit in the summer.  The weather hasn’t changed – it’s still hot and humid – but there are ways to beat the heat.  Stay cool in air-conditioned comfort of interesting indoor venues and embrace the outdoors with memorable adventures on the river and along Georgia’s unique marsh-laced coastline.  Either way, it’s a wonderful time!

Enjoy a pleasant 1 ½ hour Sunday Brunch aboard a triple deck riverboat with a slow turning paddle on the stern, the kind that in the early 1900s made the journey upriver to Augusta.  As cruising upriver is no longer viable, a leisurely Savannah Riverboat Brunch Cruise around Savannah Harbor offers a different perspective of the city and the 21st century activity along its waterfront.  Kick back, get off your feet for awhile, enjoy being on the water with a nice breeze blowing, watch the waterfront and the huge ships going by while savoring Low Country shrimp and grits, eggs Benedict, omelets, quiches, fried chicken, ham, waffles, biscuits and gravy, salads, fruit, and desserts.

The thought of flying through the air over the trees sounds thrilling, but with the “I want to” comes the fear factor. While we might have always wanted to fly like Peter Pan, people weren’t necessarily meant to fly. But now we can!  Zipline Hilton Head guides you from beginning to end and makes it a blast!

I have long wanted to try ziplining. I also find the magnificent salt water marshes and meandering river systems of coastal Georgia and South Carolina Low Country exceptionally beautiful. I am fascinated by the way all parts of this unique landscape interact – tidal flow, sand, mud, and spartina grass “islands” broken up by lacy estuarine fingers meandering through them. Traveling from Savannah to Charleston along Route 17, I have marveled at this richly abundant ecological system visible along the road and have wished for a bird’s eye view.

The owner was a master builder who designed several of the Savannah’s elegant Federal and Georgian style mansions. Unlike his peers, Mr. Davenport used English bricks and brownstone instead of wood for his facades. The 6,800-square-foot home highlighted the architect’s skills and social status. It also provided additional space for his growing family. The beautiful house is one of Savannah’s oldest masonry buildings.

The Historic Savannah Foundation, a group of concerned citizens, stepped in to preserve the building in the 1950s when it faced demolition after years of decay and neglect.
