So many ways to celebrate Savannah New Year's Eve 2017There are so many different ways to enjoy a Savannah New Year’s Eve! Parties, dinners, riverboat cruises, fireworks displays, and more. If you’re planning on being here December 31st, you’ll have no trouble finding great ways to ring in 2018!

Savannah is a great town for celebrations. We know how to throw a party and a Savannah New Year’s Eve sees dozens of them across the city. You’ll find individual celebrations in bars and restaurants as well as in public spaces. While there is no way to fit all of Savannah’s New Year’s Eve events into one post, we thought it would be a good idea to at least outline the biggies.
