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.

We may have entered the building by the wrong door to get the most help. The lower level is not really the visitor center, I think, and the young lady at the desk was definitely unhelpful. I was a bit off balance because of that, and maybe not prepared to think highly of the rest of the center. There were... More

I was asking for help on what places to visit at this city, if I had only a shot time here. People at information desk enthusiastically recommended a local commercial tourist product, instead. I had to bring his very long speech back to my question several times and finally he kindly marked his recommended places quickly on a map. Apparently... More

it is a quick history on Savannah here. Also you can see a mock up of the Forrest Gump bench. not the actually bench but a mock up of it. Sorta disappointed about that. Can't sit on it either.
