When the heat of the summer ends and warm and windy days of fall begin, Savannah becomes a must-see destination for travelers. There are a few attractions in particular that should be on your itinerary. Old Fort Jackson, which is now a National Historic Landmark, is situated on Savannah’s riverfront. Visitors can watch daily cannon firings, walk along Savannah’s riverfront and explore one of the oldest brick fortifications on the East Coast. Another attraction to see is the Sorrel-Weed House. Fall brings the start of ‘spooky’ season and Sorrel-Weed House is considered to be one of the most haunted homes in the U.S. The last attraction to see is Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. At this ionic candy shop, you can try samples of fresh pralines, create your own mix of candy and load up on your favorite sweet treats.
Tybee Attractions to Visit this Fall
Fall is the perfect time to experience Tybee Island living at its finest. A must-see attraction in the fall is the Tybee Island Lighthouse and Battery Garland. For a few nights in the fall, the Tybee Island Historical Society provides tours to take a look back on the haunted history surrounding the lighthouse and battery. Another perfect attraction to visit this fall is the brand new Tybee Island Marine Science Center. Their new 5,000 square-foot facility features touching tanks, turtle talks, an amphitheater, life-sized exhibits and much more. Also located within the center is Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary that is a can’t-miss spot. Lastly, a stop in the Tybee Post Theater is perfect in the fall. This restored movie theater was once a movie house for soldiers stationed at the army base. Reborn in 2015, it’s perfect for catching a show, performance or movie screening on a fall evening.
