Did you know the number one Savannah Attraction on TripAdvisor.com is the Historic District? That’s right, the neighborhood where our Bed and Breakfast resides is also the number one place to check out on a visit to Savannah.
Beat the heat this summer during your tour of the neighborhood by taking an old-fashioned carriage ride. We offer a special for this unique and fun experience: Tour the Historic District of Savannah with a well-informed driver that will narrate the ride for you, pointing out historical points of interest and giving you the back story on well known Savannah landmarks.
The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes and will pick you up right here at the inn. The cost is $115 per couple.
If you are looking a perfect proposal idea, add champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries to your ride in an extra-long white carriage. This romantic ride could be the beginning of a new life together! Upgraded carriage ride is $175 per couple.
Savannah Historic District Points of Interest
These are some of the places you will visit and learn about on your carriage ride:
- Forsyth Park. The park’s north end is home to a cast iron fountain that was erected in 1858. The Forsyth Park Fountain was designed to resemble the grand fountain in Paris at the Place de la Concorde.
- Mickve Israel Temple. Learn about the Jewish community and history in Savannah. The temple is a beautiful example of 19th century architecture.
- Andrew Low House. The beautifully restored home of one of Savannah’s most infamous residents.
- And many more!
Romantic Savannah Lodging
We like to think that McMillan Inn accomplishes a perfect balance of Victorian Romance with modern conveniences. Enjoy wide verandas and porches, the dipping pool for cooling off in the back courtyard, and in-room luxuries like Jacuzzi tubs and flat screen TVs.
