Few Days in Savannah


A few weeks ago we took a road trip up to Savannah for the first time, we have heard so many good things we wanted to take a long weekend and see what the charming city was all about. We had 3 days to soak up all that Savannah had to offer, which we felt was the perfect amount of time. The main downtown historic area of Savannah is all within a 3 mile radius, which makes it a perfect walking city and easy to see in just a couple days. 
What makes Savannah so intriguing to tourist is how old the city dates back, there is history dating back to 1733! Whoa! It's no surprise it is rumored to be one of the most haunted in cities in America. Even if history or haunting's aren't 'your thing', that's okay because there is still plenty to do and see, not to mention the amazing restaurants.

Our 3 days in Savannah were pretty simple and relaxing. Once we got to our Airbnb and settled in we were ready to hit the city, one of my favorite part's was just strolling around admiring all the beautiful architecture.  

Where we stayed: Savannah is also known for there historic Bed and Breakfast Inn's, I would have loved to stayed in one, but we had our dog (Tanner) with us, so we needed a pet friendly place. Airbnb is always a safe bet for us when we travel! Most of our trips we try to use Airbnb, especially if we have Tanner.

Where we ate: Sooo many options to choose from! Savannah is a very 'foodie' city, there were so many amazing places to choose from but these are just a few we ate at.
The Pink House- Fine dining- Dinner
The Pirates House- This was one of my favorites..the food was great but the house comes with a lot of interesting stories with it. -Dinner
The Collins Quarter- Breakfast, Brunch, Coffee. Just trust me on this one, it's a must!! The avocado toast is to die for.
Slys- Quick bites-Lunch
The Paris Market- Coffee- Brocante Market. This place was amazing! It really makes you feel like you stepped into a small market in Paris. Fun place to grab a coffee and shop around.
Leopolds- Icecream, Dessert. If you want to feel like you stepped into a 50's ice cream parlor defiantly make the stop for dessert!

Where to Shop:
Riverwalk- Really fun area to walk around, the Riverwalk is Savannah's historic old river port. There is plenty of shopping and restraunts along this area.
City Market- An outside market featuring plenty of art's and shopping.
Broughton Street- Here you can find your traditional shopping and clothing stores like H&M and Anthropologie.
Civvies- Vintage!!
The Future on Forsyth- More vintage!

Things to Do: 
Check out all the historic Squares of Savannah
Wormsloe Historic Park- About a 15 minutes drive outside of the historic district. Worth it if you want to see a beautiful hundred year old oak trees.
Ghost Tour- Many of different ones for all ages. I recommend just doing your research.
Joan's Street- Voted #1 most beautiful street in America.
Riverwalk-Shopping, Dinging, ect.
Tybee Island- Beautiful beach about 30 minutes outside of city
City tours- Hop on and off trolly's
Forsyth Park- If you're looking for a romantic walk this is the perfect spot
