    There's plenty to do! Take a ghost tour in a hearse, enjoy a cold one while strolling River Street, marvel at the enormity of the container ships traversing the river, daytrip to Tybee Island, take the kids to the Forsyth Park playgrounds, and let the kids run through the brand new fountain at City Market (bring towels!). If you want to lodge near the water, the Hyatt Regency provides convenient direct elevator access to River St. The Marriot Riverfront provides great river views also. With a family of five, we always try to get upgraded to a suite. The extra room will be appreciated.

    There is a waiting area with pay phones, so you could call a cab service if one isn't at the station already. Check Amtrak's website for more information on the particular station.

    If you're looking to try something a little different, but still be part of the action on River Street, check out the Bohemian Hotel. Part of the Autograph Collection of boutique hotels by Richard Kessler, its gothic style fits the haunted reputation of the Hostess city of the South. Rocks on the Roof, the hotel's rooftop bar, has become one of the hottest spots in town. Alternately, if you're looking for a resort-style hotel, the Westin Savannah has all the amenities. Have drinks poolside, let the kids play in the splash zone, and make smores by the outdoor fire pit, all while enjoying views of River Street from Hutchinson Island across the river. There are free ferries that run about every half hour to shuttle you from the hotel to the River Walk. Bonus: if you find yourself there the first Friday of the month, enjoy a low country oyster roast, live music, and full bar by the riverside. Oh, and fireworks.
