Family-Friendly Things to Do in Savannah This Winter

There’s no doubt that Savannah is a true Georgia gem. Whether you already live in Savannah or are considering a move here, it’s a great place to live with tons of positive attributes. There’s a great mix of urban appeal and old-world charm. Full of the friendliest people, rich history and culture, and beautiful scenery, this coastal city is a treasure for all that live there and all that visit.

Check Out These 5 Things to Do

December Nights & Holiday Lights

December Nights & Holiday Lights is an annual event you and your family don’t want to miss. This year’s event is located at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens where guests will be greeted by a winter wonderland and a life-sized Advent calendar. Families can walk together through the garden (including a new garden area) that features magical light displays. Bigger than before, the event spans nearly five acres and includes Woodland wonders in the Sun Garden and Santa Land in the Children’s Garden where Santa Claus will be each night.

Savannah Christmas Market

Bring the whole family to experience one of Savannah’s merriest holiday traditions at Plant Riverside District. Throughout the Savannah Christmas Market, your family will feel the holiday spirit with the exciting celebrations happening all season long. Family-friendly activities like street performances, live holiday music, exclusive holiday market vendors, and seasonal food specials will bring a smile to everyone’s face along Savannah’s Waterfront.

Ghost Pirates Ice Skating

Even though Savannah is located in the south near the ocean it doesn’t mean your family has to miss out on the popular winter activity of ice skating. The Savannah Ghost Pirates (our pro minor league ice hockey team) and Savannah’s Civic Center worked together to turn their arena into Ghost Pirates Ice. Visitors can enjoy ice skating all the way through the holiday season and beyond. It’s a fun time with family and friends whether you’re a pro or a little wobbly on the ice.

Savannah Holly Days

All throughout the holiday season, Savannah hosts an array of exciting activities and events that the whole family can enjoy. Though you won’t see real snow, you’ll still feel the magic of the holidays during Savannah Holly Days in this coastal wonderland. You and your family can enjoy a wide selection of activities like the Jingle Bell Block Hop party, holiday shows, Cookies with Santa, caroling groups on Broughton Street, Holidays on the Big Screen and so much more!

New Year’s Eve Fireworks on Tybee Island

The New Year’s Eve Fireworks on Tybee Island event is the perfect way to ring in the new year in Savannah. Watch the sky light up with festive fireworks while also enjoying the lights reflecting across the beautiful beach. There’s nothing like Savannah’s beachside fireworks display on New Year’s Eve.
