Savannah is a unique tourist destination. Summer time sees crowds because of school breaks: it also sees high room rates and nearly unbearable heat and humidity which can make it unpleasant for visitors making their way from one attraction to the next.

The winter months of January and February is low season - at this time you will see a drop in the temperatures and a drop in room rates. The fall from mid-September through mid-November is a good time to visit Savannah when it is uncrowded and room rates are reasonable. But the best time to visit Savannah is spring from March to June - this season is similar to the fall but with the added attraction of blooming flowers.
