Spring in Savanna is a glorious time of flowers and renewal. Birds are arriving from their winter breaks, flowers start blooming and our hotels and cabins have some great mid-week and weekend packages. Come and re-fresh and enjoy the splendor of spring with us.
Especially exciting this spring is the beginning of the Savanna Museum and Cultural Center's celebration of the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln. On April 7, the museum presents: 'Surrender at Appomattox, Making History Come Alive with Grant, Lee, Custer and Company presented by Larry Werline as President Grant. Additional activities occur in Jun and July, see our Events Page for more details.
April is a great time to get out and enjoy nature. Plan a walk or a bike ride along the Great River Bike Trail – 62 miles of paved trails starting in Savanna and ending in the Quad Cities. Walk from town to town, take in lunch, check off a couple of birds on your bird watching list, get a hotel room and spend the weekend.
If you're feeling a bit more adventuresome join the Ingersoll Wetlands Learning Center for their April 6th Geocaching Event. This high-tech hunt using a hand-held GPS will help you find treasures and caches.
Finally enjoy an evening or afternoon of entertainment at the Magic and Music in Savanna concert. This entertaining evening of exciting magic and outstanding musical performances will be held on April 26, 27 and 28th see our Event Page for Details.
