Now that Savannah's notoriety has grown in proportion to its history, people travel from across the world to peek in its cemeteries and rummage through its diverse cultural closets. And while it's true that "the book" (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
) turns a curious
spotlight on the city's eccentricities, there are still many other entertaining ways to spend your time here - sometimes even before midnight.
In many ways its own city, Historic Downtown contains the majority of entertainment venues in town. The Savannah Civic Center
, comprised of The Martin Luther King Arena and The Johnny Mercer Theatre, hosts major rock concerts and other large audience draws.
The Lucas Theatre
is another restoration site put to good use for film screenings, opera, dance, etc.

Children, as well as adults, enjoy family drama at the Savannah Children's Theatre
Historic Savannah Theatre
continues to offer excellent musicals and dance productions which are forever popular with Savannah's theatre fans. Of course, the Savannah Music Festival
also attracts huge attention each year with its varied and celebrated musical programs. This annual event usually runs in the Spring from mid-March to early April.
Music and upbeat performances continue at Club One
. This is definitely the place to take an adventurous, fun crowd for dancing and drag shows. The Lady Chablis still performs periodically.
Savannah flows with the seasons. It's humid in the summer, but you will still find Forsyth Park alive with people morning and night. There are open fields for team sports, as well as a children's park and a fountain that turns green on St. Patrick's Day. Cross Park Avenue to the South for a cool cup of iced coffee at The Sentient Bean
. In the evening, The Bean offers random entertainment for college students and the collegiate at heart.
Entertainment isn't difficult to locate in any of the major areas of downtown Savannah. Visit City Market, stroll through Forsyth Park, walk along West Congress Street, or take a trip down to River Street. Most likely, wherever you choose, you will find plenty of sights and sounds for your amusement.
