Savannah! Knowing that I lived in Georgia for a few years before, you probably expect me to say that I have visited Savannah several times. Truth is, that we had to move away for me to become interested in visiting. For whatever reason, we always traveled South, to Florida. On this last trip to Georgia, I decided that Savannah was a MUST! And I’m glad that we did it.
Day 1 – We arrived and checked in at Hotel Indigo on Bay Street. The staff was welcoming and resourceful. The room was clean, modern and had a great view. After deciding what our night would look like, we went downstairs to Five Oaks Taproom for drinks and walked over to River St. for dinner at Chart House. We then walked around town a bit and called it a night – it’s age catching up with us. Just kidding! It’s really just parenthood. 🙂
Day 2 – We had made plans to check out the East Coast waters. 😉 So, we headed to Tybee Island for lunch and decided to try StingRay’s Seafood – the photo doesn’t do it justice; it was great! The staff was friendly, the food tasty and the beers cold. Great environment out on the patio. I recommend this place if you’re in the area – it is also very affordable but you do have to pay for metered parking.
After our meal, we spent the day at the beach in Tybee Island. We headed back to the hotel to get some rest before heading back out to experience Savannah’s night life. We walked around while deciding where to grab a bite and even though it was raining, lots of people were out and about too.
After dinner, we stopped at Wet Willies – River Street for frozen drinks. We took those to go and went to City Market, where we asked the locals about the best bars and night clubs. We ended up spending most of the night at Tree House Savannah – the atmosphere and music were great. 😉
Day 3 – This was our last day in Savannah – bittersweet – glad to be going back to see the girls but sad that our vacation had come to an end. Before leaving we stopped for lunch at Dubb’s Pub. Then, stopped at Below Zero – recommended by a blogger friend. Glad that I was able to visit, I love ice cream – and rolled ice cream was a cool experience.
Well, there you have it. A summary of our Savannah getaway. If you plan to head east, make sure to jot Savannah as an option. It’s a beautiful little city. Plus, now you have a few places to check out. 😉
