Don't go there. There is nothing attractive in this area. There is alot of small bars and people are normally out on the streets late at night

I was born and raised in St. Thomas and Savan is a place that local people would not even go to unless they 1. live there or visiting someone, or 2. want to get in trouble. Savan, known previously as the "Savannah," is far from...More

Savan is definitely not for Tourists. It's towards the western end of Main Street. You are likely to have a bad experience if you wander into that part of town.. So simply stay away..

Filled with history? Perhaps. But this is NOT a place to visit. Tourists are definitely not welcome, and the locals avoid it. Don't go here. Just don't.
