Travel Info

Arriving by car

Downtown Savannah is about 2 ½ hours from Charleston; 4 hours from Atlanta and Charlotte; 4 ½ hours from Orlando; and 5 hours from Raleigh-Durham. Parking downtown can be a challenge, so be sure to check with your hotel or host about available options.


Arriving by air

Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) serves Allegiant, American Airlines, Delta, jetBlue, Sun Country Airlines, and United, with many non-stop flights available. The airport is a 15-minute drive from downtown Savannah.
Once you arrive at the Savannah airport, you can choose from several rental car options or simply hop into a cab to your hotel. Downtown Savannah is very pedestrian-friendly, so having a car at the ready may not be necessary.
