Fun Savannah Fact: GRAB A TO-GO CUP! – Savannah has an open container law that allows people to carry alcoholic beverages outside in public. The rules: Only one cup, must be disposable, 16oz or less, must remain inside the “Historic District”. Don’t worry about that though, Savannah has the largest Historic District in the county so you’ll have to walk far to get out of it!
