Get ready for a good time. Any time.
Feeling like taking a picturesque walk down historic Main Street or the surrounding neighborhoods?
You can make pottery or jewelry, stroll through a gallery, and then stop by the Public Library for children’s story hour or an author reading. If you are interested, take a music class or browse locally made musical instruments.
And if shopping is your idea of fun, you’re in the right place. Find out more about shopping here.
Hungry? Downtown Statesboro has more than 20 eateries. Whether you’re looking for fine dining or a steaming latte, some of the south’s most famous barbecue or fresh-baked artisan bread, you’ll find it here. Also Statesboro is home to one of Georgia’s must-see farmers markets — the MainStreet Farmers Market is a foodie’s delight Saturdays, April through November. Check out the fresh and local produce, served up with music and fun activities.
Once the stars come out the nightlife flourishes. The Averitt Center for the Arts and its Emma Kelly Theater offer music, theater, dance, movies and an ever-fresh art gallery. Raise a glass at one of our bistros or taverns. Or, try your luck at a little billiards. And join us for F1RST Friday, a monthly downtown celebration for the whole family.
Do a little time traveling, too. Many Downtown buildings and homes are on the National Register of Historic Places. Stop by the Confederate memorial which marks the route of General William T. Sherman’s forces through Statesboro on their March to the Sea. Pick up the History Walk Guidebook at our offices.
Or just relax and feel the warmth of the Southern sun – and charm. Take up a bench on the courthouse lawn, listen to a bubbling fountain, enjoy the landscaping in our historic downtown.
