We stayed at a lovely bed and breakfast in the historic district of Savannah called Zeigler House Inn.
There are squares every couple of blocks in the historic district, each dedicated to a different person or event.
They are gorgeous and quite noisey at night! I have a video on Instagram of standing in the square the first night and the bugs are SO loud!
We were not staying very far from the infamous Forsyth Park.
The monuments found throughout the city are amazing for both their height and architecture.
Did you ever read the book or see the movie “In the Garden of Good and Evil?”
This is the Mercer Williams House that is the main setting of the story. We took a tour and it is simply beautiful inside! Unfortunately they don’t allow photography during the tour.
There are multiple churches with impressive architecture around Savannah.
This old theatre boasts as the oldest in America! It has been around since 1818 and is still operational.
This is the back veranda of the Owens-Thomas House.
This mansion is noted as one of the most opulent that can be toured today in Savannah.
We spent our last couple of days chilling out (literally, Savannah was so humid!) at nearby Tybee Island.
This is also where we were the day of our actual anniversary.
Tybee has a very different feel from most other beaches I have been to on the east coast. Its very laid back and not super commercialized. A lot of the restaurants look like complete dives on the outside (some even on the inside), but these folks know how to cook!
Between Savannah and Tybee Island, we did not want for good food. We even broke from the traditional southern fares and went for Italian one night and it was super scrumptious! We did not get a chance to eat at The Lady & Sons (Paula Deen’s place) before you ask, but we wished we had the time.
The best thing that we did while in Savannah was take a trolley tour the first full day there. It gave us a great overview of the city as well as some history that we didn’t yet know.
Have you been to Savannah?
If so, what was your favorite thing about the city?
