Savannah, GA is historic, charming and offers a lot of southern flare. Our visit to Savannah was nothing short of an amazing time. Venturing through the city, learning about the history, and taking in the beautiful architecture and landscaping was just what we did during our trip.
I took a trip to Savannah, GA with a group of our girlfriends, for a fun weekend getaway to celebrate our friend and bride to be! While walking through the streets, we stumbled across other groups having fun with the same celebration! It’s a great city to feel safe, have fun, shop, eat and enjoy beautiful, historical landmarks! Today I’m sharing my travel guide to the lovely city:
What we did during our visit
–Ghost Tour with Savannah Walks: Highly recommend doing a ghost tour. We found this one on Groupon and it was totally worth it! It was historic, funny, and only a little scary. This is a walking tour, so be prepared to walk about a mile or so.
–Shopping on Broughton Street: A fun area of town to do some shopping and eating. Highly recommend stopping into Nourish to grab some shower steamers, bath fizzies, and other pampering items! I picked up some shower steamers for our trip, and some to take home.
–Shopping on River Street: Between the candy shoppes, souvenir stops, and the beautiful river front, River Street is a great area to visit while you are in Savannah, GA. I highly recommend the walk or Uber due to limited parking in that particular area.
–Historic Trolley Tour with Old Savannah Tours: Our group really enjoyed learning about the history behind Savannah, GA. Old Savannah Tours had a great rate and they even had actors of historic figures pop on the trolley to tell us about their history in Savannah! I would highly recommend the “off and on” option so you can get off at any of the historic sites and visit!
–A walk through Forsyth Park: This park is so beautiful. We strolled through, but we saw many families playing their favorite sports, hammocks in the trees, and pups playing catch!
–McDonoughs Karaoke Lounge: Our favorite stop of the trip was to McDonoughs for some karaoke! We all got up on stage and sang Cardi B, and had the whole place singing and dancing! Pick your favorite song and request it for you to sing solo, or with a group!
Places we ate during our visit:
–Huey’s On The River: New Orleans styled food and flavors.
–Little Duck Diner: Southern classic including delicious grilled cheese, salads, mac and cheese, milkshakes, soups and more!
–Goose Feathers Cafe: A sweet little spot to stop for sandwiches, coffee, or a sweet treat!
–Garibaldi: Offered a nice variety of flavors-from seafood, Italian and cajun.
–Mrs. Wilkes’ Dinning Room: This is a MUST. Get there early, like an hour early. You’re going to have to stand in line, but the food is so worth it! Get your southern comfort at this historical restaurant!
Where we stayed:
–The Jones Carriage House: This is a sweet little airbnb with the cutest interior!
