Get Artsy

Spend the day with the Telfair Museums. The Telfair consists of three museums, starting with the contemporary Jepson Center, where you can browse the permanent collection and special exhibitions at your own pace with provided exhibition guides. The Telfair Academy, a stately two-story mansion containing three nineteenth-century period rooms and houses 19th and 20th century American and European art from the museum’s permanent collection. Lastly there’s the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters, a beautiful Regency style mansion built in 1819, where you can learn about the people, both free and enslaved, who lived and worked on the site 200 years ago.


Immerse in History

For an afternoon full of history and beauty, take a step in to the past with a tour of the county’s oldest African American church, the First African Baptist Church. A registered historic landmark, and built by Slaves and Freemen, it is thought to be the oldest continuous African-American congregation in America.


Find a new Favorite Flavor

We all need that afternoon ice cream pick me up. (That’s a thing, right? We’re going to make it a thing) Why not put a little pep in your step and stop by Leopold’s Ice Cream for a sweet treat? With over 100 years of ice cream know-how, it will be easy to find a new favorite. There are even Vegan and Dairy-free options!


Lift a Spirit

or two

Be it liquor or brews, you can tour and try either (why not both?) at Ghost Coast Distillery  and Service Brewing. Ghost Coast, Savannah’s first distillery since prohibition, is celebrating 4 year and has a nice selection of Vodka, Whiskey, Rum, Bourbon, and Liqueurs. Service Brewing is a veteran-owned and operated craft brewery crafting authentic American-made beers for the curious and experienced consumer, focusing on high quality and local ingredients.
