Walking under Savannah’s canopy of twisting Live Oak Tree limbs draped with Spanish moss is an enchanting way to spend an evening, but when you’re looking to explore all Savannah has to offer - especially over a long weekend - you want a quicker way to get around. Make the most of your Savannah adventure with these unconventional ways to get around town.
Hail a Pedicab.
Sit back and relax in an open air bicycle taxi with a seasoned cyclist as your driver and guide. Savannah Pedicab’s taxi service stretches from Bay Street to just south of Forsyth Park, and from MLK Jr. Blvd to East Broad St, encompassing some of Savannah’s most striking architecture and must-see historic sights. They offer a “Trips for Tips” rate for trips under a half hour, sightseeing tours, and an option to have your own pedicab driver at your disposal all day (10a.m. - 5 p.m.).
Zoom around the squares on a Motorini Vespa.
If you’ve ever dreamed of touring the rugged landscape of Santorini by scooter, you’ll jump at the opportunity to rent a Motorini Vespa during your Savannah stay. With different styles and colors, you can pick out a Vespa that complements your personal style as you zoom around downtown. Whether you want to ride solo or with a partner, Motorini provides everything you need for the ultimate scooter experience.
Glide around town with a Segway Tour.
They may look — and feel — a little funny at first, but once you get the hang of how a Segway works, you’ll be ready to get your glide on. While you can’t rent a Segway and go off on your own, Segway of Savannah’s 60 or 90 minute Historical Squares Tour is a fun way to learn your way around town while learning the rich history of our beautiful city at a leisurely pace. They also offer tours through Bonaventure, Laurel Grove, and Colonial Park Cemeteries.
See Savannah on wheels.
Cruise around Savannah on a bicycle built for two - or three! Savannah On Wheels has a wide selection of bikes to choose from, including multi-riders, cruisers, road, mountain, kids, and even electric, available to rent for a few hours, the day, or your entire stay. Their Complete Rental Package includes a quality bike, optional helmet, optional basket, bike lock, map and even free roadside assistance! They offer military and group discounts, and will even deliver your rented bike to you for free.
Take a shuttle to Tybee.
If they only thing stopping you from spending a day at the beach is the drive — parking, a sandy car, the desire to enjoy a beachside frozen alcoholic drink of goodness — we’ve got the perfect solution: Tybee/Savannah Shuttles. Just pack your cooler, towel, and chair and sit back to enjoy the scenic drive. While the shuttle only runs Friday through Sunday, it conveniently picks up at the Savannah Visitors Center starting at 10 a.m. The last shuttle back from Tybee is at 5 p.m., giving you plenty of time to get ready for a night on the town.
