// Savannah City Guide//
Happy Tuesday! From the past couple of posts you might have caught on that we went to Savannah last weekend. I love that town and thought I’d put together a small city guide to some places we visited and loved! Thanks to all the friends who provided suggestions on where to go, they were super helpful!
Savannah is full of art and history with it’s homes from the 1700’s, Civil War sites and now the modern Savannah College of Art and Design. The town is decorated with amazing logos and signage and one can tell that the art school has its stamp on this historic town. If you’re interested in visiting a town full of good restaurants, the beach, art galleries and lots of history including ghost hunts…this is the place for you!
I can’t say enough good things about Airbnb! Airbnb provided us with two amazing and affordable places to stay. I love the unique options it gives and the people you meet through staying at these homes.
One of the best parts of travelling is the opportunity to eat at new places. Savannah is full of eclectic, farm to table, down home cooking and I felt lucky to try a few.
This was our 2nd time eating at Cha-Bella. This organic and seasonal restaurant serves amazing seafood and salads. You might even see a famous person while dining! We were lucky to spy cast members from Harry Potter (Ron Weasley and Professor Snape)!
I had to eat here…my name is B. Mathews! (I’ll forgive them for spelling our last name wrong). This restaurant in the historic district was my favorite place we ate while in Savannah. I enjoyed a nice whiskey apple cocktail and a truffle mushroom ravioli. The bluegrass band was an added treat!
Sadly, we didn’t get a chance to eat at Papillote French Cuisine. We did however walk slowly by the window and kicked ourselves for eating such a big breakfast. We had at least 3 people recommend the brie-apple-ham sandwich!
I love Tybee Island because we can enjoy the beach without all the crazy tourists and the island is pretty sparse. If you’re looking for a low-key and minimal place to lay by the beach, Tybee Island is for you!
Things to Do
There are plenty of tours to hop on and shopping to be had in Savannah. There are 22 historic town squares full of cafes, shops and historic homes.
The movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” was filmed in this old cemetery by the river. It was so beautiful!
I think the name speaks for itself. They have every kind of honey under the sun and you can taste them all!
Thanks for stopping by this small Savannah city guide!
