Little Ones in Savannah

I’m coming to Savannah with my two nieces who are 7 and 9. Any ideas about how to keep them occupied?

I have family in Savannah and I've taken my two children there who are very close in age to your nieces, so I can suggest a few places!  This is mostly places where my family down there has taken my kids and their young cousins, which is even better since it's advice from locals:

  • Forsyth Park -- Great playgrounds and I love how they have separate playgrounds for really young children and another one for older children
  • Ellis Square -- The kids loved running through the fountains here!
  • Starcastle Family Entertainment Center -- This is an arcade, skating rink and laser tag spot
  • Savannah's Candy Kitchen -- The kids had a so much fun picking out candy to bring back to their friends at home and they loved watching candy be made, too!
  • Savannah Bee Company (Broughton Street) -- While you get a little shopping done and get a honey tasting, drop the kids off at the back of the store in the hive theater/play pen where there are books, toys, bean bags, etc
  • The Pirates House Savannah GA -- Pirate-themed Southern restaurant.  Food was good and the kids got a kick out of the pirate actors
  • Monkey Joes -- This is actually a national chain of indoor bounce houses, but that's another kid-friendly option.

Have a good time with your nieces!  If you take them to all of these places, you'll probably seem like one cool aunt to them ;)

There’s actually a really cool activity for kids called “Savannah Safaris” where they take kids around town and have them find certain animals in the architecture. I’d like to do it myself! If your nieces happen to be Brownies or Girl Scouts, you’ll definitely want to take them to the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, Girl Scout National Centershe’s the woman who founded the Brownies). I would also take them to the Savannah Bee Company Savannah Bee Company (Broughton Street)on Broughton. It’s basically a honey company, but they have a giant “hive” there for kids that they can go in and watch TV (although I think it’s just cartoons about honey). It’s a really fun place to bring kids. If you’re really game, you can also take them to the Savannah's Candy Kitchen at City Market Savannahwhich is a huge candy store, although they may be a little hyper by the time they leave!
