When March rolls around, celebrations aren’t just confined to St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah. They’re rocking the city all month, which is why March is the one of the most popular times to visit Savannah.
The Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is the third largest parade in the world – second in the USA only to New York City. It starts on Saturday at 10:15am.
But, if you’re looking for the biggest and best parties around, head to River Street and City Market. On March 16 & 17th vendors line the street with fabulous food, cute gifts and all the while – bands will be performing live music on stages all over downtown Savannah. These two hot spots are where the real St. Paddy’s Day party is.

To escape the madness, or perhaps to recooperate, camp on Tybee Island. Check out River’s End Campground which is a fantastic home base for exploring the area. Here you can lay on the beach and bake the alcohol out of your body. Or, laze around in the shade and just relax.
River’s End features over 100 sites – ranging from full hook-up capacity with water and sewer and free cable, to water and electric service only, as well as primitive tent camping sites.
Some, but not all, water-electric sites also have free cable. There is complimentary Wi-Fi for those who need to stay connected during their stay. Take a look at the Park Map and pick out your spot! Don’t own a camper? There are cute cabins for rent too!
Not into outdoor activities? Consider taking the Trolley Tour of old downtown Savannah, visit some of the museums or stop in Lady & Sons for a bite. You know, that place owned by Paula Deen?
We know you will have a lovely time in Savannah, whether you go for St. Patrick’s Day or another time.
