Three years ago this fall, social media & blogging brought together Diana from Mother Soul & I together. We quickly connected & grew as human’s & bloggers together. We’ve been the greatest friends since then but hadn’t had the opportunity to meet face to face until this last week. Together we took on Savannah Georgia & it’s safe to say I am counting down until I can head back.
Savannah Georgia is my namesake, my mom visited there years before I was born & thought it was the most beautiful place she had ever been, swearing her first daughter’s name would be Savannah. Fast forward a few years & minus the “h” & here I am! It’s been high on my priorities to visit this historic city & I certainly wasn’t disappointed, everything down to the pure kindness from the locals drew me right in.
So, let’s get down to it. When you make you way to that gorgeous city here is the perfect guide of what you cannot miss out on from where to stay, eat & what to do..
Where To Stay
123 East Broughton Street
This historic hotel right in the historic district was so magical. Right in a central location we were in walking distance of everything. During the day an extensive tea, coffee, water & lemonade station is up, every evening there is complimentary wine &cheese for guests & the staff made us feel right at home with that southern charm. Our room had a charming vintage feel all the way down to the bathroom tiles. When you stay at the Marshall House be sure to take advantage of their continental breakfast at least once! I could not get over how much they had to offer & how fresh everything was.
Where To Eat
151 Bull Street
This was probably the most “insta-worthy” restaurant I have ever been to in my life & the food lived up to the expectations the atmosphere set. My lavender mocha & savory french toast was a total winner but their dinner menu has me wanting to go back to give it a try.
19 Jefferson St
Now I am not British nor have I been to Great Britain but I imagine that if it’s anything like the quaint & homey environment in Pie Society, I would fall in love. The pies are cooked daily and the selection between sweet and savory is so extensive, I appreciated the variety; however, the steak & potato pie with pecan pie for dessert was a big win for me. *wink* (PS- take a look at their site, they ship pies, WIN!)
108 E. York Street
To quote their slogan, this place left me going, “shit yeah!” Everyone working there is vibing so high, the food is insanely flavorful and fresh & their mission statement about balancing the circle of life is bound to leave you feeling like you experienced some of the best Savannah has to offer. I can’t say I recommend one thing on the menu over the other, we got an extensive taste & I was equally in love across the board.
53 Montgomery St
This bakery/cafe won our hearts as soon as we walked in. The minimal french look & smell of fresh bread? Killer. Not one thing on the table disappointed & the reoccurring trend of fresh food was apparent here as well. Le Cafe Gourmet actually bakes the bread that Zunzi’s uses daily.
What To Do
There are a handful of trolley tours and it seems that they’re all equally wonderful. Staying right in the historic distract was perfect, we were in walking distance of just about everything but taking the trolley gave us the perfect chance to rest our legs, notice things we may not have on foot & learn more about the rich history of the city.
Explore River Street
Call me crazy but big rivers which huge boats & a gorgeous bridge give me such magical vibes. It’s simply not something I see in Utah. We walked the street twice in our time there and the river breeze, cobblestone streets & historic buildings left me feeling like I was in a movie. That feeling is what leaves my heart longing to go back.
207 W. York St.
We didn’t have a chance to visit any of the other Telfair Museums but the Jepson Center had us completely mystified. I am such a museum gal but always prefer those with more temporary exhibits & the Jepson center had just that.
Visit Savannah is an awesome resource if you are looking for more places to visit!
There you have it folks, I think this entire agenda would be so magical as a family or couple’s trip as well. I might be a little partial due to my name but Savannah Georgia is a must hit for anyone. Happy Travels!
