As you guys know, I recently went on a road trip with my mom. One of the cities we stopped in was Savannah, Georgia. If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram/reading my last few blog posts then you know how obsessed I am with this city. It is hands down one of my very favorite places I’ve ever visited, so I wanted to put together a little travel guide to tell y’all all about my favorite spots!
Where to Stay
First up is where to stay. My mom and I stayed at the Hamilton-Turner Inn and oh my goodness… This place is amazing. I will most definitely be back! Each room is unique and the food is incredible. They serve a homeade breakfast every morning, wine and cheese at 5:00 pm, and warm chocolate chip cookies at 8:00 pm. If you wanna read more about it, check out my full review in this post.
Where to Eat
I love to eat, so I am always allllll about the food when I go on a vacation. There are tons of great restaurants in Savannah! Here are my favorites:
Gryphon Tea Room: lunch
I had some of the best quiche I’ve ever had at Gryphon Tea Room! Not only is the food delish, but the decor is also the coolest. There are beautiful bookcases with old books everywhere and stained glass windows. It has a cute, European bistro feel to it. Great ambiance and good food is always a win in my book.
Circa 1875: dinner
Circa 1875 is a casual Parisian bistro. This is another spot that has a very European feel to it, which I love. The food is super fresh and 100% authentic. They also have an awesome wine selection. I highly recommend the charcuterie board!
The Olde Pink House: dinner
Upscale southern food in a historic pink mansion. The exterior of this place is the perfect spot to take a photo, and the interior is equally as beautiful! I got a chicken pot pie here that was to die for.
What to Do
If you like historic homes then this is the place for you! There are quite a few open for touring, but I personally enjoyed just wandering around the Historic District and exploring on my own. But, be prepared to walk because parking is limited. Luckily everything in this area is no more than 10 minute walk. And, there are pretty little squares (parks) every couple of blocks that make walking that much more enjoyable.
For more scenery, I also recommend heading over to Forsyth Park. It’s known for it’s big fountain and large Oak Trees draped with Spanish Moss. On Saturday mornings you’ll find a farmer’s market there as well. For shopping you’ll want to head to the Paris market for French inspired gifts and decor. They also have coffee and macarons!
Have any of you guys ever been to Savannah? If so, I’d love to hear about your favorite spots!
