Hello,

Me and my family will be in Savannah in December for couple days. Could you please recommend things to do and see while we are there? Could you please recommend good restaurants too?

Thanks a lot in advance!

What type of foods do you enjoy? Do you prefer cheap, mid-range or 5 $ type prices? If family includes younger kids, what are their ages? In what area you staying? Assuming you have access to a car?

Kids are ages: 10, 4, 2. We will stay at a hotel and we will have access to a car. We enjoy sea food, steak, french, italian, greek, japanese, vietnamese, thai and etc..We enjoy any type of food except fast food...We are interested in history, museums and sightseeing. We are not limited to particular area in Savannah, we can drive to places and restaurants...

If it’s sunny and not too cold, make a trip to Tybee. I don’t have little kids, but I think there is a hands on marine center (Tybee Island Marine Science Center)for the kids. There are plenty of good restaurants there, and on the way. We like Huc a Poos for pizza or nachos, if you don’t mind taking the kids to a dive bar. It’s a neat place where the locals go. Paula Deens Creek House is very good. It’s a few miles before you get to Tybee.

The Pirates House, downtown, is a must for dinner. It’s kid friendly, historic and the food is good.

There is a free ferry boat shuttle between the Weston Hotel and River St. that the kids might enjoy.

The Historic District is chock full of things to see and places to eat. Around every corner is something to see. Maybe someone with small children will give you some suggestions.

We love the pizza in City Market from Vinnie Van Go Go's. They are very casual, cheap and so good. They are cash only do if you go, make sure you are prepared.

We are also fond of Spanky's. Wonderful chicken fingers and the spuds are a must in place of regular fries. Another very affordable, casual restaurant. There is one on River ST as well as Tybee Island

We took the Old Trolley tour and learned quite a bit of history about the area.

Downtown is also decorated for Christmas and worth seeing. There are a variety of activities planned on weekends for the holidays as well.

There is a Farmer's Market every Saturday in Forsyth Park until 1pm. The kids could run around if you are interested in looking at the market. Fresh produce, local honey and dairy are just a few things they have.

If temperatures permit, there is the Tybee Ecology Tour. Your guide takes his group onto the beach and teaches about the sea life. Folks are given the chance to search for various animals and shells. Kids seem to like it plus they get to dig in the sand.

Hotels generally have many brochures of things to do in the area as well.

I agree. My first Pirates House visit as a kid has stayed with me. I still have the old Polaroid snapshot of us out front in July 1967. The memory has also remained with the kids (all now in their 60s like me) who came along with us for dinner with their late parents (close friends of my late parents). Pirates House is a must for children and teens.

P.S. This was considered a pricey restaurant back then -- it was a special treat you had maybe once as a child and once again as a teen. Don't know what the meals cost now. Visitors should get a heads-up before they go.

Look at the “DO” section of the newspaper on Thursdays for ideas.

I’d probably just go on a historic house tour, and then to the shops on Broughton, and have a nice fancy lunch.
