Hilton Head is a fantastic place to vacation. You can find just about everything you would ever there. But while you’re in the area, you may want to consider a short day trip just over the South Carolina border to Savannah, Georgia. What can you get in Savannah that you can’t get in Hilton Head?


Hilton Head is unique; there’s no doubt about it. However, since it’s only been more populated since the mid-20th century, it has a much different flavor from older cities. Savannah placed prominently in both the American Revolution and the American Civil War. History buffs can’t pass up an opportunity to see some of these sites when they’re so close.

Trolley Tours

Hilton Head is known for great beaches, making it the ideal place to be on a hot, sunny day. But when the weather turns, it might be a better day for some touring or shopping. Since Savannah is known to be pretty hot in the summer, you can find shelter while you sightsee by hanging out on a trolley or in one of the many shops and restaurants.

Different Food

The food in Hilton Head is to die for. But if you feel like you’ve already experienced it all and are hankering for something new, give Savannah a try! You can try the historically-themed 17hundred90 or Six Pence Pub restaurants. If you’re just looking for some delicious desserts or cocktails, imagine what you could find in a place called Better Than Sex.


When you want a vacation day with a different kind of experience than Hilton Head, you’re only about forty minutes away from a different world in Savannah. Make the short trip and try something new.
