One of the trips I took recently, that I meant to post about earlier, was a trip with my friend Britanny to Savannah, GA! Savannah is an adorable, old-style southern town. It’s known for things like colorful historic homes, trees covered in Spanish moss, southern cooking/ seafood, a huge St. Paddy’s day celebration, and the filming of Forrest Gump. Since Southern GA gets really hot in the summer, I sported two outfits in Savannah that both had spaghetti straps and were lightweight. Because we did a lot of walking around as well, I made sure to wear comfy clothes & sported sneakers & flat sandals. Check out what we did there!
The Paris Market- This is the cutest shop with two floors to shop around in. They also have a small cafe inside where you can get coffee (I got a lavender latte) and macaroons!
The Tea Room– I took this pic outside of The Team Room which you can find inside of a book store! They have a large selection of tea and I got a bag for a gift to a friend. The bookstore is also big and great to walk around in!
Forsyth Park– My friend and I took the afternoon to walk through some of the squares in the city to get to Forsyth Park (p.s. Chippewa Square is where the Forrest Gump’s bus bench is!) The park is 30 acres and bordering the park are pretty houses!
Chocolat by Adam Turoni– This is easily the coolest chocolate store I’ve ever been in. All the different types of chocolates are placed around books on a bookshelf! There is also quirky papers and on the wall and displays around the shop. Definitely worth a walk through!
The Collins Quarter– We asked a lot of friends for recommendations before Savannah and several of them said to eat at this place! Their brunch, tea, and cocktails were all delicious and they offer outdoor seating as well!
Sorrel-Weed House Ghost Tour– Savannah is a city that was essentially built on a graveyard due to the battles from the civil war. Britanny and I went on a ghost tour during our visit since we’d both been to Savannah multiple times. We enjoyed all the spookiness and stories that were on our tour of this house pictured below. There are several different ghost tours you can do and it’s cool to do once in your life!
Savannah’s Candy Kitchen– I loved walking through Savannah’s candy shops as a kid. I’m a sucker for caramel apples so I always get one but the signature item to get here is the pralines (I also got peanut butter brittle). Definitely stop in!
River Street– This street is the touristy hub to go to for Savannah’s candy stores, souvenir shops, restaurants, and river boat tours. I recommend walking there around sunset for a nice pre-dinner walk!
I hope you decide to check out Savannah, GA if you’re ever in the south! It’s the cutest little getaway! Let me know your favorite spots in the city through the comments!
