The parking in Savannah is getting better, but this is still your best bet. It is a gated surface lot that is at their beautifully restored train station. Park here and then tour the visitors center and get maps, sign up for tours or just start walking the city. The visitors center has a train car that serves meals and... More

My friend and I were treated cordially and the staff took a great interest in hearing about where we were from and gave us tips on where to go and how to get there and which tours were best in value and in history telling. The shops were full of souvenirs, from cups, to spoons, to pictures and postcards. I... More

Before you get started on your Savannah adventure, stop by this center. Knowledgable welcoming staff, city maps, restrooms, and a gift shop.

Good location to begin your tour of Savannah. Multiple trolley tours leave from here and provide excellent overviews of the city. Clean restrooms, friendly staff and the museum is nice too.

THIS location is the one you want. Do not be fooled, as we were, by the smaller "welcome center" on the Rt 25 connector after you come off the bridge (that turns into Oglethorpe St.) That one is mainly a tour bus ticket center. Go 2 blocks past that one, turn right on Martin Luther King Blvd, go 2 blocks... More

I recommend this as the starting point to visiting Savannah. Lots of good information, helpful staff, clean washrooms. The visitor center is also a stop on the DOT circuit, Savannah's free tourist shuttle service. The exhibit in the museum are interesting and worth checking out, and the building itself is spectacular. Easy to walk from here to various attractions, under... More

Like most things in life, it depends who you talk to. We walked in the visitors center and encountered two women eager to help us make the most of our Savannah visit. They asked about our preferences and recommended restaurants, museums, they had a variety of brochures for walking and ghost tours, there was even a small gift shop across... More

We thought that was all there was until we dug a little deeper. The guy sitting at the concession center was unfriendly and not helpful. It's not marked well that visitor center is on the upper level. Joel, (previously from Chicago) was very congenial and informative about Savannah. Wish we had longer to talk with him. Have to pay to... More

Nothing remarkable. NOT free parking. Staff is friendly. Expensive gift shop. Little snack area sells the worst tasting hot chocolate I have ever had.
