What Should I wear?
Savannah is definitely a “walking” city, so comfort is key for day play around town. The cobblestone streets wreak havoc on high heels, so stylish yet comfortable shoes are a must. The weather in March is typically 70 and sunny, so a cute sun dress, spring-colored capris, or a fun, nautical inspired outfit will work well.
For a night on the town, a sassy cocktail dress with your favorite heels or dressy sandals is the norm for a downtown location. The weather may be a bit chilly at night during St. Patrick’s Day, so dress jeans and a cute jacket with boots would do the trick for a stylish but casual evening out.
No matter what you choose to do in Savannah for St. Patrick’s Day, you are sure to be drawn to this sultry, Southern city on the coast of Georgia and will soon be planning your next visit back!
