Heading to Savannah, Ga for vacation this week. Recommendations?

We are heading to Savannah for 5 days this week. Any of you guys have any recommendations for good food and attractions? We will be staying on River Street so I know we'll be in the heart of everything. Also going over to Tybee Island for a day. Any recommendations of what part of the island to visit? Go Tigers and I will be decked out of my tiger gear.

When I took it 37 years ago, there were a surprising number of historical houses in Old Savannah that were currently owned by out of town "stars". The (then) recently retired Joe Namath was one example.

This was obviously years before he became a Medicare Advantage Plan Man.

The Shrimp Shack has some of the best shrimp tacos you can buy. Nothing fancy, after eating a few doors down is Leopolds Ice cream. Don't miss it

Agree on the Crab Shack on Tybee Island as really good, but don’t go expecting fried seafood. They don’t offer it unless they changed this year.

Open air market right across the street for novelties.

Concur on pink house, Pulaski and mighty 8th.

Alligator Soul is good. Block and a half off River.

UGA aquatic center on Skidaway is cool. Especially with kids

Steam boat cruises are nice in the evening.

Crab Shack is the most touristy restaurant there. If you like steamed food, that's overpriced, head there. Gator pit will excite the little ones.

Savannah smiles if you like to drink and dueling pianos vibe.

City Market for Wild Wings and such. I actually like Bar Bar downstairs from WW.

Enjoy your trip

We were there for a convention a few years ago and a pretty large group of us went to Savannah Smiles dueling piano bar and had a blast. I see there is now a restaurant named Rhett right next door to Savannah Smiles. Never been there but it must be good!

That location used to be pretty rough while I was there. Couple of shootings, and they closed up. Kinda sketchy walking past to get to Smiles around then.

There's actually a nice bar below smiles that was private, adequately named Speak Easy. Really tight, but there was always talent in there!

309 West, and another bar (had a bucking bronco ride) that I can't remember the name also had some pretty gals around.

Cute, good seafood, open back deck looking over Channel between Big & Little Tybee, since a western view the sunsets are very good, a place locals go to, inside seating & bar too, opens at 5 I believe.

Crystal Beer Parlor is a great place to eat. It's a few blocks outside the Historic District. That area gets sketchy and fast. If you go, drive or Uber.

The wife and I just returned from a 4 day trip to Tybee for our friends 50th. We went to Savannah for a day trip and did the Off The Beaten Path walking food tour. It's about a three hour tour that consists of stops at five local restaurants as well as some history of the city. We absolutely loved it. Our guide (Brenden) was very entertaining. Enjoyed Tybee as well. We were staying around the corner from Fannies on the beach. Best pina colada's ever. Enjoy your trip.

Leaving 8am for today Savannah, Coming back Friday. My favorite restaurant is Shrimp Factory on River Street. Other restaurants are great also. If you get a chance, try Paula Deen, so good for lunch but you have to go 2 hours early, will tell you when to come back. We will be staying on house on Tybee River (like better than ocean) for fishing.

... at Vinny Van Go-Go's. Right downtown. It's a funky joint and attracts a very diverse clientele -- I've seen hair colors that I truly did not know existed in the spectrum -- but the New York style pizza is outstanding.

I would drive right on past Savannah continue driving on 95 to Amelia Island just north of Jacksonville. You will not be disappointed in the beach and they have several great places to eat. Savannah and Tybee island are dumps.
