As I shared in my last post, last week was our first wedding anniversary. For weeks I have been planning a surprise getaway for Chris and I to the beautiful city of Savannah, GA. If you’re looking for a charming quaint city to visit over a weekend, Savannah is destination for you. From visiting gorgeous historic houses, to enjoying the night life, Savannah has something for everyone.
Live like the locals
Savannah is famous for its pastel hued historic houses, they are literally everywhere. If you are planning on sojourning in Savannah I highly recommend staying in an Inn or Airbnb. Ditch the fancy, modern hotel and experience Savannah as a local. We chose to stay at Rabo’s house, a beautiful Victorian home built in 1888. Our room, The Moonlight Room was a charming, cozy room with lots of natural light and colorful details. We absolutely loved staying in this gorgeous house filled with fireplaces and stained glasses, located only a few blocks away from downtown Savannah.
Have A Romantic Stroll On River Street
Ever wanted to take a walk on a 200-year-old cobble stone street? You got it! Head down on River Street at sundown and enjoy a view of the ferry boats gliding on the Savannah River, or shop at the many eclectic souvenir stores.
Eat And Be Merry
Savannah has so much to offer when it comes to food. I honestly wish we could have stayed longer just to try more restaurants! If you are looking for a fine dining experience (ahem, did I mention anniversary) dine at Vic’s On The River . Do yourself a favor and get some Crawfish Beignets and some Chef Kerri’s she Crab Soup. Deliziosi!
If instead you are in the mood for Asian food, you must try Flying Monk Noodle Bar. I know what you are thinking, why eat Asian food instead of local cuisine? Well, in our beautiful town of Tuscaloosa we still do not have a Vietnamese restaurant, so when I heard about Flying Monk Noodle Bar and their perfectly prepared, fresh cut noodle dishes (including Pho) I just had to. Let me tell you it was so worth it!
Need to fill your tummy with delicious food before walking around town gazing all the beautiful site? Head over to J. Christopher’s for some delicious Nutella Crêpes or a perfectly pan-fried omelet.
Have A Picnic At Forsyth Park
Treat yourself to a romantic picnic in this picturesque 30 acres park. Lay in the shade cast by the majestic oaks covered in Spanish moss and enjoy a stroll by the Forsyth fountain. This park is the perfect place for a lazy afternoon, or for catching rare Pokémon (according to the husband).
Visit The Cathedral Of Saint John The Baptist
Words cannot fully describe the beauty of this church, you just have to see it for yourself. The colors of the vaulted ceilings, the golden details, the stain glass, the cathedral organ, the wooden sculptures representing the passion of Christ. Let the breathtaking art move you and be filled with the Spirit.
Overall we had a great weekend in Savannah. Have you ever been to Savannah? What is your favorite thing to do there?
