Although Savannah is the country's largest national historic landmark district it is not too big to discover by foot. Savannah first and foremost is a walking town. Most shops, B&B's and Hotels in the area offer free walking maps so be sure to ask for one first thing.
Getting around Savannah is fun, fast and free with dot! dot is downtown Savannah's free transportation system and offers 3 great ways to get around.
The Express Shuttle runs 7 days a week from 11am to 9pm with 11 stops in the historic district.
To further invoke the sense of history, River Street can be explored by streetcar. The River Street Streetcar runs Thursday to Sunday from noon until 9pm with six stops between Montgomery Street and The Waving Girl Landing.
Want to snap a great picture of the river front? Use Savannah Belles Ferry and cross the river in a ferry reminiscent of those used 100 years ago to Savannah's International Trade & Convention Center. The ferry runs every day from 7am to midnight and has two landing sites on the historic side, by the Waving Girl Landing and just below City Hall.
NOT FREE, BUT FUN
Segway of Savannah offers both tours and self guided rentals of their segway's. The office is located at 102 E. Liberty Street, Suite 106, but you might want to call (Harry Green -(912) 233-3554) ahead to make reservations. You must be 18 years old, 15 with parent approval and will be required to wear a helmet.
One of my favorite options for getting around Savannah are the Vespa Scooter Rentals available at 236 Drayton Street. Available for 1 hour to 7 day rentals this is a fun and oh so European way to explore Savannah.
The Savannah Pedicab is a fun way to get around downtown. They offer both hourly rate tours and a traditional taxi service... I recommend them for getting back to your bed after a night of bar hoping!
BUS, BIKES, & AUTOMOBILES
The Chatham Area Transit(CAT) offers extensive transportation throughout Chatham county and the downtown area with stops at some of Savannah's popular spots. A one-way fare is a reasonable $1.50 but the real deal is the $3 day pass with unlimited rides.
Along with being a great walking town, Savannah welcomes bike riders. From the Downtown area to Tybee Island you can find a good variety of Bike Rental shops. Check around for rates, but the average is $20 a day. There are lots of bike racks available for when you are out exploring, but be sure to use a lock!! And most of the CAT buses offer bike racks as well.
As with all cities, Savannah has lots of Taxi and Cab services. Rates are pretty reasonable. You'll have more luck calling a service for pick up than hailing one down.
