I don’t think that it’s any secret that the South has many charming cities and Savannah exceeded my expectations. Here are just a few of my favorite things about my trip!
Known as “America’s first planned city”, it’s maintained its original structure with 22 squares that each tell a unique story.
City Market– This place has a lot of shops and restaurants, including Vinnie Van Go-Go’s pizza! You can also sign up for a carriage ride through town here!
The Lady and Sons- Paula Deen y’all! It just happened that she was in town while we were there so not only did we get to eat some amazing food but we got to meet her too!
Olde Savannah Tours– There are two trolleys and this is the one we took since our hotel told us about it. The drivers were very informative and we even had a few visitors from Savannah’s history and cultural influence come on board to tell us more. There were 16 stops which allowed us to get off and explore and then get back on when we were ready to explore some more.
Childhood Home of Flannery O’ Connor– This is one that I would have overlooked but my Mom wanted to go and it turned out to be one of my favorite parts of the whole tour! Like all the other places, you felt like you were back in time and learned more about a beloved author by many…and yes there was a place to buy her books after! 🙂
Tybee Island– This was my first time to go to the Atlantic Ocean so it was a must to be able to dip my toes in the ocean. It was beautiful!
Until next time!
