Jacksonville To Savannah Day Trip

Savannah Skyline

There’s a shorter way and a longer way to get to Savannah from Jacksonville. To go straight to Savannah to begin sightseeing as tours and attractions in the historic district begin open, take the shorter, 2-hour drive up I-95.  It’s typical interstate scenery – cars going by.  To take the picturesque longer route through Georgia’s unique tidal landscape and picturesque towns along the barrier island coastline, the 3- hour long drive along U.S. Route 17 is a must.

There is a good compromise.  Take both routes by driving about halfway up Route 17 where you can hop on I-95 just beyond South Newport.   Leave Jacksonville early in the morning, enjoying the early morning colors of the spartina-laced estuarial landscape along Route 17.  Take a short jog over to Jeckyll Island, one of the barrier islands.  For a bit of local flavor, grab breakfast at The Pantry, Hibiscus Café or McCormick’s.  Drive to nearby Brewery Ruins Horton-duBignon, the oldest standing tabby structure in Georgia.  Open 24 hours a day for walk-throughs, the ruins have an interesting history and beautiful surroundings.  Head back up 17 to merge onto I-95 a short distance away. If you left at 7am, you’ll get there around 10:30am, giving you plenty of time in Savannah. To make the most of your day, select what interests you from this pick list.
