Savannah, Georgia

For our 3rd Anniversary, Kevin and I took an incredible week vacation spending time in four states: Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. I am going through all the highlights. Enjoy!

Savannah had a lot of the same characteristics as Charleston but in a darker way. I don't know if that made any sense...

If you find yourself in Savannah there are four things I recommend you check out:

The Squares
There are 22 historical squares and they are all pretty great. Savannah really takes pride in Chippewa Square where the Forrest Gump bench scene was filmed. We certainly got our steps in walking to all of them!


Oh and seriously walk down Jones Street. It has been voted one of the most beautiful streets in North America by Southern Living.

SCAD
All around you is Savannah College of Art and Design, you can't miss it and it is pretty cool. While we were there graduation happened. Super cool people!

The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist
This Catholic Church is one with a lot of beauty and history. And when I say a lot, I mean it is really big!


The Andaz
We stayed at this Hyatt based hotel off of points and it was nice! The location, atmosphere, and service was all very nice.


Food note:
Oh my gosh and I can't do a post without talking about food. If anyone tells you to eat at Lady and Sons. JUST DON'T. SO GROSS.
FAIL SAVANNAH....FAIL.


Have you ever been really let down at a restaurant?
What do you like to do in Savannah?

  1. I've never been to Savannah, but my gosh, it looks gorgeous! And yes, we were actually sorely let down by a local eatery that everyone raves about, Apollo. They supposedly have amazing gyros. They don't. Gross.

  2. I have yet to visit Savannah but my parents stopped there on their way to take my sister to her college program at Disney. They ate at Lady & Sons, were the first in line to get their name on a list and my dad and sister said it wasn't worth it, my stepmom absolutely loved it because she loves everything paula deen. So what didn't you like about it?
