New Year’s Eve is easily one of the most exciting nights of the year, but New Year’s Eve in Savannah, Georgia can be an experience unlike any other. What better way to ring in the New Year than with a Champagne toast in beautiful Savannah? Take a getaway to the beating heart of the South and read on for your guide on how to make New Year’s Eve truly special.
Enjoy a New Year’s Eve Riverboat Cruise in Savannah
Ring in the new year and watch the clock hit midnight on an elegant cruise ship sailing the Savannah River! Savannah Riverboat Cruises offers three fantastic experiences to choose from with an excursion for every type of traveler.
The New Year’s Eve Dinner Cruise is ideal for families interested in a fun night of celebration without staying out late. The boat boards at 5:00 p.m. and returns to the dock at 8:00 p.m, giving you the opportunity to turn in early or continue the night with more festivities. Admission includes a buffet-style dinner and special live entertainment. The New Year’s Eve Party Cruise is an exclusive event for guests 21 and older and begins at 8:30 p.m, ending at 12:30 a.m after guests have popped champagne for the new year. The package includes hors d’oeuvres, entertainment, and a fully-stocked bar on board. If you’d prefer to attend a more elegant affair, book your tickets for the New Year’s Eve Gala Cruise and experience a full surf and turf buffet dinner, live entertainment, and a bottle of the house wine or champagne. Formal attire is not required but highly encouraged, after all, there’s nothing like going out dressed to the nines! Of all the options, this is most likely to sell out, so be sure to book well in advance if you want to reserve a spot!
Watch the Fireworks Display on Tybee Island
If you’re looking for the best view to watch spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks then Tybee Island is one of the best places to go. The island is home to some of the best beaches near Savannah and hosts the biggest New Year’s Eve fireworks display in the Southeastern United States. It’s the perfect way to start your year with a “bang!” Head down early to get a good parking spot and do some exploring, as there is plenty to see in the area while waiting for the show. Get comfortable with a blanket on the beach or find a seat at a nearby restaurant, but make sure you have a view of the Walter W. Parker Pier and Pavilion. Sit back, relax, and ring in the new year with a fantastic midnight display.

Shop at some of the best gift shops in Savannah at City Market, an excellent venue for must-see annual events.
