Savannah Rambles  - Architecture walking tours of a unique American city

Parking can be a problem in Savannah's National Landmark Historic District (Downtown).  Plan to arrive in the Historic District at least 30 minutes prior to start time to allow for parking.  The easiest way to waste time and money is to use the metered street parking.  Most of the parking around Johnson Square, my usual start location, is limited to 2 hours or less.  This is NOT enough time to go on a Ramble and return to the car before you get a ticket.  Our Meter Maids are the most efficient city employees ever!

Save yourself a great deal of worry and money by using the Ellis Square Parking Deck 1/2 block south of W. Bay Street and then walking one block east to Johnson Square.  Please note that the few surface lots downtown are NOT owned by the city and if you use them, you will be towed.

If you will be Rambling on a Saturday, the street parking is free, but usually hard to find after 9am.  If by chance the Ellis Square Parking Deck is full, there are two more decks close by: The State Street Deck at the corner of E. State St. & Drayton St. and the Bryan Street Parking Deck at the corner of E. Bryan St. and Drayton.
