Historical Attractions

Tybee Island Lighthouse

One of Georgia’s oldest and tallest lighthouse, as well as being one of America’s most intact lighthouses (dated 1773). From the top of the lighthouse visitors can experience a picturesque view of the Atlantic and surrounding Georgia countryside.

Fort Pulaski

Great historical site to take the kids to hear the daily cannon firing.  Many indigenous species live on the island making it a great place for a walk, bike ride, or to fish.

Old Fort Jackson

From 1884 to 1905, Fort Jackson was known as Fort Oglethorpe and was little used by the U.S. military. It was purchased by the city of Savannah in 1924 for park purposes.  Old Fort Jackson is a must see historical landmark.

Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum

Ships of the Sea Museum features nine galleries of ship models, maritime paintings and artifacts.  The vast majority of ship models were commisioned by the Museum to interpret the rich story of Savannah's maritime history.  The collection of models includes, colonial vessels, ironclads, ocean-going steamers, and modern navy ships.  All of the models have been strenuously researched and delicately detailed.
