As a visitor to Savannah for over 30 yrs, I was disappointed to learn that the movie overview of the city that was always complimentary is now a part of the admission cost to the museum that our guest did not have the time to visit. I was looking forward to having these first time visitors learn from the film that has been in use as long as I can remember and is now part of a fee only experience. I guess as Savannah's popularity grows so do the fees.... too bad. We are all teachers that have a keen interest in the history of this city.

We stopped in to buy a parking pass and had to get cash out of the ATM, as the visitor center takes cash only for parking passes and for payment if you park in the visitor center lot. This seems kind of antiquated for a city that sees so many tourists. We did not visit the museum here but the bathrooms are fantastic and the gift shop had many unique items. Parking passes are $7 for 24 hours or $12 for 48 hours and allow you to park in any city lot or garage and some metered spaces. We found them to be well worth it.

Sharon made many calls to find us a hotel room at a price that worked for us. Got us in at the Doubletree and it was a great location. We parked our car and walked everywhere. It is close to the visitors center and the main trolley stop. This amazing lady knocked herself out for us on a very busy weekend. SHE IS A GEM!

This is a good first stop to get a feel for the city. Come in and cool off, enjoy a drink and learn a little about the city of Savannah. It is worth the small fee to walk through the museum and be sure to take the time to watch the 15 min. movie about the history of the city. You can pick up a map and information about attractions and get help planning your visit. There is a very nice gift shop to browse and all of the trolley tours have a stop here. Enjoy

A little bit of a wait but it was worth it. They couldn't have been more informative on tours, dining. Had plenty of ideas for quick things to do and see. Everyone should stop in on their visit its right across from the market.
