Savannah is considered moderately friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community. This means the city has a thriving and welcoming LGBTQ+ culture, with many businesses owned by members of the community, but open acceptance may vary between regions.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Known around the world as one of the gems of the American South, Savannah truly embodies “Southern hospitality.” In fact, the city’s nickname is “The Hostess City of the South.” From the Colonial-era architecture of its historic district, to the French Gothic style of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, to the Spanish moss drooping from its countless live oak trees, Savannah defines “Southern charm” and draws millions of visitors every year with its tropical and culturally eclectic appearance.

Savannah boasts a vibrant arts scene largely upheld by the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), a prestigious art school which operates several museums, theaters, and annual events like the Savannah Film Festival and the Sidewalk Arts Festival. Popular Savannah museums include the SCAD Museum of Art, Telfair Academy, the Savannah African Art Museum, and the Beach Institute. Many well-known movies have been filmed in Savannah and remain must-see spots for visitors: Forrest Gump famously recalled his past while sitting on a park bench in Chippewa Square, and Clint Eastwood’s film adaptation of “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” captures the haunting allure of Bonaventure Cemetery.

Though it’s not quite a coastal city (Tybee Island’s beaches are about 17 miles away), the city’s climate and placement along the Savannah River may suggest otherwise. River Street — with its award-winning restaurants, old-fashioned pubs, antique shops, art galleries, riverboat cruises, and unique hotels — is one of Savannah’s top tourist attractions. Just south of the river is the city’s historic district, where you can walk to 22 city squares — all within 2 to 4 blocks of each other. The squares, which were part of colonial Savannah’s original design, vary in size and feature fountains, monuments, playgrounds, and parks.


Savannah provides public transportation via Chatham Area Transit (CAT) and its network of buses. CAT also runs a free shuttle called the “Dot” — arriving at stops every 10 minutes, seven days a week — to connect residents and visitors to Savannah’s downtown area and all its main attractions. The Dot’s Forsythe loop extends south to Forsyth Park, while the downtown loop runs mainly east and west, closer to the Savannah River.

Another transportation option is the Savannah Belles Ferry, which carries downtown passengers across the Savannah River to Hutchinson Island and the Savannah Convention Center.

Biking is also a great way to experience Savannah’s downtown area and city squares: The League of American Bicyclists named Savannah a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community in 2017.

Disclosure: A Place for Mom refers to "nursing home" here generally as an umbrella term to include assisted living facilities. It is not used to indicate that the facility meets official state requirements for level of care of a skilled nursing facility, as defined in that particular jurisdiction.
