No matter what kind of adventure travel visitors desire, they can find it in Savannah, Georgia. Enjoy everything from pure fun — to pure terror!

Here are seven destinations Savannah offers for excitement.

Latest: What's Your Favorite Type of Vacation? Relaxing or Exploring?

1. When looking for sheer entertainment while enjoying the sights of Savannah, visitors can enjoy the unique Broadway-style live shows all year long at the Historic Savannah Theatre. Singers, dancers, actors and a five-piece live band perform a variety of themes.

From popular shows that highlight the '50s and '60s to themes based around Southern rock, country music, or holiday melodies, the shows offer rollicking fun for everyone. Enjoy popcorn, candy, soft drinks, or wine during the performances in the historic theater, built in 1818.

2. Scary stories provide something extra at the Savannah Theatre during its Spine Tingling Tales. The haunting accounts you hear from a master storyteller are not only legends, but they are also ghost stories told through personal experiences and investigation.

Narratives focus on stories throughout the world and local yarns, including tales of ghosts inside the theater. Hear frightening first-hand accounts, and even help solve mysteries that have surrounded Savannah. The theater is considered one of the area’s most haunted buildings.

3. River Street along the Savannah River contains all the excitement you need for a day, night, or all week long. The glittering row of entertainment choices includes nightspots, drool-worthy restaurants, brew pubs, art galleries, antique shops, and beautiful boutiques.

Take a river cruise and watch the ships from along the water. You get a taste of Savannah history combined with entertainment because many of the establishments are in buildings converted from old cotton warehouses.

4. Visitors can take a break from city life and venture just a few miles east of the Savannah Historic District to check out the varied animal life at the Oatland Island Wildlife Center. A two-mile path features a splendid wildlife preserve with more than 150 animals from 50 different species.

5. Lovers of fermented malt and hops can tantalize their taste buds at the World of Beer. The club boasts more than 500 beers from more than 40 different countries.

A friendly staff complements the pleasant atmosphere. Whether you are a beer aficionado or want to know more, bartenders know their beer and will often allow you to sample brews before satisfying your palate.

6. Add some unique music to the food and drink at the Savannah Smiles Dueling Pianos Saloon. Piano players take requests all night long for rock, country, heavy metal, and even rap tunes, all from pianos. Audience members make the decisions.

Talented pianists often play for energetic crowds in an old-style honky-tonk atmosphere. Customers shout out requests, make suggestions on napkins, or just bid on the songs they want to hear.

7. Adventure travel in Savannah wouldn't be complete without Savannah Ghost Tours, adding some mystery to your exciting journey throughout the city.

While walking through some of Savannah's most beautiful streets, you visit some of America's most haunted and historic places. Learn about ghosts and creepy locations from top city tour guides.
