This historic coastal city known for its stunning architecture also deserves a reputation as a great place to visit with pets? Why?
Well, let’s start with the dozens of charming parks and tons of restaurants with pet friendly patios offering delicious food and beautiful views. Add in walking tours that explore the town’s haunted history and you’ll run out of time before you run out of fun things to do with your pet in Savannah.
Best Time To Visit
Spring in Savannah brings lush greenery and warm temperatures. It’s a particularly nice time to visit, especially if you’re traveling from the great frozen north.
Summer is filled with activities. But you’ll also find large crowds, humid weather, and biting insects. If you’re looking for a quieter season, wait until fall to plan your visit. Temperatures are often quite warm until late November. And Savannah is much quieter.
Winter is also a lovely time to visit, especially if you enjoy the sight of light up historic houses. But be aware that during a cold snap, you’ll struggle to find an open patio for dining with a pup.
Things Not To Miss
Don’t miss a stroll along Savannah’s riverwalk. You’ll get views of everything from pleasure crafts to massive container ships. And you’re within steps of dozen pet friendly patios overlooking the water.
Or take advantage of the city’s many historic walking tours. One, Oliver Bentley’s Historic Dog Walk Tour, is even designed with pups in mind. Or look for ghosts on one of their haunted walking tours.
When you’re ready for lunch, stroll the downtown City Market where you can pick up a Po’ Boy sandwich at one of the pet friendly patios nearby. Don’t forget to buy a souvenir to help you remember your fun time after you return home.
