Go on a Valentine’s Day dinner cruise

It will be just you and your sweetheart laughing, talking, walking, and enjoying the simple pleasures of the city. Sometimes, it only takes a simple idea.

Settle down for a nice meal and enjoy your sweetheart’s company as you both bask in Savannah’s natural beauty.
Watch the sunrise or sunset on the beach
While this idea isn’t technically in Savannah’s Historic District, watching the sun set – or rise – on one of Tybee Island’s beaches is such a fantastic treat that making the short drive is easily worth it. Walk along the beach, splash in the water, or simply enjoy the sun from the Tybee Pier and Pavilion. Expect and unforgettable morning – or evening.
