My husband and I are planning a short 3-4 day vacation and have narrowed it down to:

Austin, Houston, Nashville, San Antonio, Savannah

We have never been to any of these cities and are looking to explore a fun city with lots to do. I also want to get an idea of what the south is like. Any suggestions would be great!

Nashville or Savannah get my vote.

Houston is the largest city, so there's probably more to check out there.

But San Antonio is fun too..the Riverwalk area is beautiful, and there's also a Six Flags.

All are great choices, but I'd actually save Austin for the fall - the city's vibe is more fun when the students are back (IMO).

If you like the historical and very southern vibe of Savannah, what about including it in a tour of the following:
Charleston
Beaufort
Savannah
St Augustine
They're all within a very manageable distance from one another, and right off I-95.

I loved San Antonio - I agree that the Riverwalk is great.

Very good idea! You should take this into consideration!

What kinds of activities do you like?

Being in TX I can tell you more about these:

Austin has the state capital, an okay downtown and music scene, and some nice lakes and scenery. Not much else there I'd consider major attractions.

Houston has NASA, a good zoo, top-notch arts/culture/museums, good pro sports, a downtown aquarium, Kemah Boardwalk, San Jacinto monument, the Galleria shopping complex and water wall. Beaches in nearby Galveston.

San Antonio has the Alamo, Riverwalk, lots of historic missions, Sea World. Overall, it's the most touristy of the three.

All three are going to be hot right now and you'll have to drive almost everywhere.

I like San Antonio too, along with the Riverwalk and Six Flags, there is a Sea World too. Honestly you could do Austin with San Antonio, they are not too far apart. If you like driving you could even do Austin, S.A. and Houston.
