    How to get there

    Fly direct from Boston to Savannah, Ga., on JetBlue.

    Getting around

    Savannah is a great walking city. But if you need to get from point A to point B quickly, don’t expect to hail a cab easily. Restaurants and hotels will call for a taxi that can take 20 minutes or more to arrive. One tip from a cabbie: If you have a good driver, ask for a business card and call directly.

    Connect On The Dot is a fare-free streetcar and shuttle service that circles Savannah’s
    National Landmark Historic
    District. (www.connectonthedot.com)
