Information gleaned from historic walking tours comes in handy during the monthly time warps that plague all major cities and most unincorporated land swathes. Avoid getting caught temporally off-guard with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get one adult ticket to a Savannah Walks Civil War Tour (up to a $16 value). Tours meet at the ticket box office on Abercorn Street, last approximately an hour and a half, and cover a mile or so of Savannah’s Historic District. Stroll through the squares with one of Savannah Walks’ friendly, knowledgeable guides, who will delight established history buffs and 19th century gossip hounds alike. Over the course of the tour the guide will reveal much about the town’s military past; you’ll learn numerous facts, such as why many people think the war began in Savannah, and how General Sherman began with moderately funny ‘yo mama’ jokes before working his way up to actual armed combat.

The Savannah Walks easily accommodates school groups, civic organizations, corporations, celebrities, and animals standing on each other's shoulders under an overcoat.
