Transportation: Getting To and Around Savannah

Getting To Savannah

By Air

Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport:
The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport connects with 16 non-stop destinations on 11 different airlines. For more information, see the airport's website. Ground transportation from the airport to downtown Savannah is available by limo, taxi and bus. Shuttles are available from the airport to Historic District hotels for approximately $15 one-way and $25 round-trip.

Jacksonville Airport:
Another alternative for reaching Savannah by air is to fly into Jacksonville, Florida, a two hour's drive from Savannah. Jacksonville is served more than a dozen airlines, including Southwest Airlines.

Atlanta Airport:
The Atlanta airport is the closest international gateway airport and is about three hours and 45 minutes drive from Savannah.

By Train

Amtrak's Palmetto and Silver Service trains stop in Savannah on their routes between New York City and Miami. The station is located about ten minutes from the Historic District. Taxi service is available.

By Car

If you drive, you can get to Savannah via Interstate 95 (north/south Exit 99A/B to I-16) or Interstate 16 (east/west Exit 167A) all the way into the downtown Historic District.

Getting Around in Savannah

Savannah Trolley Tour

Savannah is very much a pedestrian city, and if you stay in the Historic District, you do not need a car. Most hotels and B&Bs have parking arrangements, but there may be an additional charge to park a car.

Catch a Cat:
There is a free shuttle in Savannah's Historic District. And there is also a free ferry between the riverfront and Hutchinson Island near the Westin.

Several taxi services operate in the Historic District. We found this very economical for evening travel between the Mansion at Forsyth Park and the Historic District.
