Within a ten minute walk from the Andrew Low House Museum you will find many of Savannah’s most popular attractions, as well as great restaurants, bookstores, and museums! Here are some of our favorites:
Just a few steps from the Museum across Lafayette Square, you will find the Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist. With its towering duel steeples, ornate architecture, and stunning stained-glass windows, this historic place of worship is a must-see.
Picturesque Forsyth Park, with its gleaming white fountain, is less than a ten minute stroll from the Museum. Shaded walking paths, benches for relaxing, and plenty of open space for picnics make this park an ideal spot.
One block away, on Madison Square, stands the magnificent Green-Meldrim House. A beautiful example of Gothic Revival architecture and the site of General Sherman’s Headquarters during the occupation of Savannah in 1864.
There are several restaurants to choose from in close proximity. If casual dining is what you are in the mood for you might try Clary’s, made famous in the book and film, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. For fresh sandwiches and salads, the Art’s Café is a fun destination with an interior that includes a double-decker bus originally used in London! Slightly upscale, the Gryphon serves a variety of dishes in a charming, library-like setting. Located in a historic pharmacy, the restaurant offers a tradition afternoon tea service along with creative American dishes.
Savannah offers many wonderful places to stay, whether your visit is one night or a week-long adventure. A short two blocks from the Museum, the DeSoto Hotel is one of the oldest and largest hotels in Savannah. The Hamilton-Turner Inn is directly across from the Andrew Low House on Lafayette Square. It is a boutique hotel housed in a lovely 1873 historic home.
