Planning a road trip this summer or boarding a plane to a Southern US destination? If so, check out my Kid Friendly Activities In Savannah Georgia.
My family visited Savannah on Spring Break a couple years back and really enjoyed our stay. We lodged in the downtown area with the intentions of walking to a few of our destinations (we thought we might even run into Forrest Gump at one of Savannah’s Parks).
In addition, we filled our downtime with strolling around to see historic homes near the hotel, finding fun food establishments like Mellow Mushroom, and swimming at the hotel pool.
Plus, with 3 kiddos we went with the flow just in case they got tired or the weather didn’t cooperate. The schedule my husband and I worked out was great for our family of 5.
Here are my recommendations for Kid Friendly Activities In Savannah Georgia!
The Pirates House –
This is not only a dining establishment, but the wait staff dresses in period clothing making it the total experience. In addition, they provide a history and tour of the building along with details of the famous Pirates who visited the establishment. Our waitress was happy to take a photo with the kids and even let my little guy hold a replica gun.
FYI, there is a gift shop for souvenirs and the menu is kid friendly with chicken fingers, hot dogs, and more.
Savannah’s River Street and Surrounding Area –
If your family likes to sight see, then this is an excellent option for vacation. There are historical landmark signs and the architecture is gorgeous. This is also a good place to grab a bite to eat, shop, and snack on treats like candy and Ice Cream (River Street Candy Store). FYI, there are parking garages all around this area if you opt to drive into the city.
I am not affiliated with this site, but it is worth your time to check out the Coupons from Discover Savannah before you book your next trip.
Tip: You can also take a ride on the Savannah Riverboat Cruises (we didn’t get a chance to go), however I suggest getting your tickets in advance and using a coupon.
Savannah Children’s Museum–
Be ready to get hands on with this museum. Using historic railroad buildings, the Coastal Heritage Society has turned these abandoned structures into a wonderland of playground equipment, a maze, games on the grounds, as well as provides crafts on select days for the kiddos.
This museum is an outdoor venue, so I suggest wearing sunscreen and bringing along a bottle of water.
Georgia State Railroad Museum-
If you have a train enthusiast, then you will definitely want to make this stop. There are plenty of photo opportunities with beautiful archways, and they also provide tours of the grounds as well as antique locomotives. Not to mention, there are indoor miniatures of railroad scenes and an actual hand car that you can drive.
It is located on the same grounds as the Savannah Children’s Museum and to save on costs, visitors can purchase packages at a discounted rate for multiple attractions. See all the affiliated locations here: chsgeorgia.org

Old Fort Jackson –
Wanting to see beautiful water views, get a tour from a Civil War Reenactor, and witness a cannon firing, then Old Fort Jackson is definitely a place to add to your travel itinerary. My kids enjoyed exploring the rooms and watching the demonstrations.
Once you have visited these Savannah attractions, be sure to check out nearby Tybee Island.
There are beaches, lighthouses and Fort Pulaski, as well as entertaining restaurants like The Crab Shack. FYI, The Crab Shack is a destination within itself with Alligators, local flavors, and fun photo opportunities.
