So we read on the .savannah tourism site that if you bought a visitors parking pass for $24 you could have for 48 hours park anywhere on the street that was parking for more than 1 hour or in the public parking lots. Well the on street parking worked but we could not find one public lot for the next 2 days that did not say FULL regardless of the time of day. Rip off. Then we had to pay the parking fee at the hotel so it ended up costing us more. Beware. Ask questions about the lots.

Visited the History Museum and found it it be very informative about early Savannah. There’s a large display of the beginning of the Girl Scouts of America. There is also information about the play at Savannah head in the American revolution and the Civil War. Spent about an hour 15 to an hour and a half there. Parking is free for the first hour and one dollar each hour after that. There is a eight dollar admission charge I believe and no senior discount. Be sure to watch the short movie as it is very informative.

This was the first place we visited upon our arrival in Savannah. Our trip was during an uptick of Corona virus cases.
The center was not staffed with people and most of it was roped off so you couldn't get maps or brochures. I visited the restrooms while I was there and paid to park there but that was all.
The parking was $8.95 for 11 hours and I thought that was great. This is a safe place to park your cars and I would advise to leave your car there and walk anywhere else you want to go. Driving a car, especially in the tourist parts of Savannah will leave you with a headache. Take my advice and walk.
Located within the parking lot were many opportunities for trolley tours of the city. You can book your trip online or pay an attendant there. They aren't pushy to sell you a trip but if you want to go, they are available. We didn't take advantage of the tour, choosing to walk around instead. Savannah also has free public transit you can take advantage of on the "dot" system. We had a city map from a previous visitor center and we had our phones, so we felt we were good to go.

The front part of the visitors center is filled with informative literature, along with lots of staff who can answer every question. The rest of the center is a museum of Savannah history, which they were charging $10 a piece to walk through. We skipped that, as we didn't think it much for the price. Parking at the visitors center is the most reasonable in town.

In addition to a cafe, trained visitor staff, and two gift shops, this center is part of a complex with several museums. The Historical Museum is perfect for people interested in learning more about Savannah's pre-colonial culture, military history, and patron of Girl Scouts. It's also a prime place to park - inexpensive and right on the line for downtown's free shuttle service.

Located in central Savannah, the Visitors Center is the place to begin exploring Savannah. In a nicely preserved building, there is lots of information available to fashion your trip. Most importantly, this is the best area to pick up on of the several trolly tours, which provide a good overview of the city. With this said, do not miss the Day Clean Gullah Geechee tour, a real highlight of our trip. There is lots of parking, but you will need to pay. The pay machines can be a bit complicated.

Our docent gave us great help in planning our multi-day stay in Savannah. She was very helpful in finding out our interests and suggesting activities and places to visit. It was hot, so the AC felt great. Restrooms were clean. There was Leopold's ice cream in the gift shop!

The visitors center was perfect to catch a tour bus and break during our trip. Paid parking is required for prolonged stay but not for a quick visit. The architecture and presentation of the art inside the building was phenomenal. Must stop during any journey to Savanna.

My wife and I recently went to Savannah as part of a fall getaway. We only had one full day there so we wanted to get some advice on the best things to do for one day in the city. We stopped in the downtown Savannah Visitors Center to get some advice and information on the city.

We consulted with Randy who evidently is a long time resident. After getting a map of the city, he marked out an amazing day on how to spend our time exploring the city. He also gave us some suggestions on great restaurants that we may want to try. He then pulled out informational brochures on all the sites and restaurants which he discussed with us. Randy was Spectacular! At the end of the day, my wife stopped by to complement him on his great itinerary. It was a fun filled, action packed day in Savannah that we will long remember. Thank YOU Randy!

Snack counter available and plenty of little round tables to eat your snacks at. Two sets of restrooms. For some free history, walk down the long hall and check out the glass-encased exhibits containing old Savannah artifacts—they give you a glimpse into the lives of the people who preceded us. For a more extensive look into local history, there are several admission-based museums (which I didn't go to and so can't comment on).
