I recently visited Savannah, Georgia for the first time! Savannah had been on my bucket list for a long time and I am so glad I finally went. I went for 2 nights and felt it was a good amount of time to see the city! Below is my Savannah Travel Guide, where I’m sharing some of the places we went too/ate at, as well as some highly recommended spots.
Where to Stay:
- Perry Lane Hotel is the beautiful hotel I stayed at. The hotel came highly recommend, and for good reason. It has a lovely rooftop pool & bar as well!
- Montage Palmetto Bluff is located in South Carolina and is 24 miles from Savannah. The hotel is absolutely stunning and I’m dying to stay there! I stopped in to view the property and had the most delicious charcuterie board. After leaving I found out that Justin and Hailey Bieber were there at the same time!
Where to Eat:
- Two Cracked Eggs Cafe – we only had one breakfast in Savannah one morning, and I’m so glad we ate here. The chicken & waffles were so good and I’m still craving them!!
- The Collins Quarter – this one came highly recommended. Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to try it, but next time for sure!
- Soho South Cafe – a highly recommended spot that we didn’t get to try but I am dying to try it next time I visit!
- Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room – we walked past this one and it had the longest line! This spot has amazing reviews, but definitely expect to wait. Many reviews said they waited about an hour but that it was worth it!
- The Olde Pink House – so good! When planning our trip this one highly stood out and is one of Savannah’s most well-known spots. I do recommend making a reservation since it is so popular! After leaving one of my followers messaged me that they do live music in the basement – so next time I will definitely go check that out!!
- The Public Kitchen and Bar – a trendy spot that was also highly recommended. Definitely will be trying this one next time!
Drinks & Dessert –
- Leopold’s – Referred to as “a Savannah tradition” Leopold’s is one of Savannah’s most famous spots is this ice cream shop! Be prepared for a long (but worth it) wait.
- Peregrin at Perry Lane Hotel – Perry Lane Hotel has a rooftop bar that is open to the public! They have a wonderful froze (complimentary if you are a hotel guest) and the spot offers a priceless view of Savannah.
What to Do:
- Ghost Tours – if you know me, you already know that I definitely did not do a ghost tour, however they are one of the things Savannah is known for. If you’re braver than me, you should definitely do one. The fact that our hotel was across the street from a cemetery was scary enough for me :).
- Forsyth Park – one thing we did was wander through the famous Forsyth Park! From there we explored the historic district and admired the gorgeous homes.
- Trolley Tour – These well-known tours in Savannah look like so much fun and I’m so sad I forgot to do this while there! Next time for sure.
What I Wore:
To say it was hot during our stay would be an understatement. I recommend packing lightweight clothes and if you’re visiting during the summer definitely pick up one of these handheld fans. I got one when I first moved to Charleston and bring it on all of my walks, photoshoots, etc. When I went to a music festival a few weeks ago I ordered them for all of my friends and they were a huge hit during the hot weekend.
Below you can scroll through the different dresses I wore! I lived in these tan block-heels that match all of my dresses and are so comfortable. The only dress I can’t link is the hot pink number shown throughout this post! It is sold out in pink, but still available in black and blue. Use code ANABELLE15 for 15% off your purchase when shopping that dress as well as any pieces available on their site.
Thank you so much for reading & have a great day!!
