Day One Savannah Itinerary Ideas from Zeigler House Inn

8:00 am Rise and shine and enjoy freshly baked goodies in room or on our southern porch.
9:00 am Stroll to the Visitor’s Center for a look around the museum and proceed to the north parking lot to board your trolley tour.
11:00 am Depart the trolley and go in search for the perfect lunch spot. Maybe back to Jones Street for lunch at Wilkes House restaurant or if you don’t want to wait in line, how about the Crystal Beer Parlor.
1:00 pm Head to the Telfair Museum for your three property ticket to tour the Telfair Museum, Jepson Center for the Arts, and the Owen Thomas House.

3:00 pm You’ve done some walking, now its time for a little break. Off to Leopold’s Ice Cream shop for a dip (or two) or their homemade ice cream! Yum, that’s a great reward for all that walking.
4:00 pm Let’s head back to the inn but on the way, let’s stop by the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Lafayette Square for a look around.
5:00 pm Back at the inn. Let’s grab a complimentary cold or hot beverage and chill out on the side porch. Maybe bring a book and relax for a while.
7:00 pm Time to head out to dinner, let us get you reservations at one of our favorite spots. (Alligator Soul, Noblefare, A.Lure, Sapphire Grill, Local 11 Ten, Old Pink House, Vic’s on the River, just to name a few)
9:00 pm After dinner drinks at Jazz’d Tapa Bar for some music and a little dancing.
10:00 pm If you want a little late night sweet take a stroll over to Lulu’s Chocolate Bar. If you’re up for more dancing and libations a trip to Factor’s Walk and a visit to Savannah’s very own speak easy Mata Hari.
"As one walks from square to square, passing each building, discovering a different nuance of detailing, from the eaves to the railings and stairs, the visual-architectural experience can be as overwhelming to the eye as a symphony is to the ear."
--Eric Meyerhoff, Savannah architect. Note: The Savannah architectural firm of Robert Gunn and Eric Meyerhoff designed the now-famous Savannah riverfront walk known as Rousakis Plaza. It runs along the Savannah River harbor.
Ideas from Amethyst Inn at Sarah's Garden
"We always tell our guests to walk over to the Forsyth Farmers Market in Forsyth Park on Saturday mornings - starting @ 9:00 a.m. 'til 1:00 p.m. Then to take in Forsyth Park, such a beauty in itself. Early morning guests can go for a run at Forsyth Park -- 1 mile around. Then go down Bull Street to the Design District that takes in Whitaker Street (near Jones Street) for morning strolling and shopping. If it's Monday through Friday, stop into Mrs. Wilkes for a true southern lunch. Or, keep on going to Broughton Street for more local shopping -- the vinegar store [Low Country Gourmet], Savannah Bee [honey] store, The Salt Table, and then onto Savannah City Market."
