Summers in Savannah are hot and humid, with frequent rain showers and storms. Tourism to the city dips slightly in July and August, and there are far fewer festivals and events scheduled for this time of year. More about Savannah’s July weather

July 4th, nonetheless, is a big weekend in Savannah, with various events and fireworks displays downtown and at Tybee Island, and special Independence Day activities and demonstrations at attractions in the city and its vicinity.
