Savannah Georgia Vacation Recap
A few weeks ago my family and I headed to Savannah, Georgia for a short stay followed by more traveling to see my nephew Dakota graduate from Basic Training. We had two fun filled days in Savannah, and I fell in love with the area. From the moss hanging down from the trees, to the old buildings to the polite people we met everywhere I truly felt at home during my visit. I don’t think I have ever been called Ma’am so many times in my life, but it is something I could get used too!!
While in Savannah we ate at Paula Deen’s Restaurant The Lady and Sons, went to Tybee Island, enjoyed a trolley ride, as well as a Riverboat Cruise. But that isn’t all, we walked the River Walk, visited the City Market, went to Fort Pulaski, and visited the Oatland Island Wildlife Center. As well as visited the Savannah History Museum, enjoyed a late lunch/early dinner at the Crab Shack and drove around to see what we could see.
Let me tell you a little about Savannah, Georgia!
- It is gorgeous, humid and a must visit travel destination.
- Food, Pubs, Shops and history Savannah has it all!!
- Museums, Trolleys, Riverboat Cruises and of course free things to do can all be found in Savannah.
- I could easily spend a week there seeing all of the museums and attractions.
- It is a very affordable vacation destination, with lots of history and a down home feeling.
- Bring lots of quarters to pay for parking!! We are from the country and never pay for parking, so we had to visit the bank to get rolls of quarters!
- Wear loose clothing that will keep you cool, it is humid but not really hot. I don’t think I have ever sweat that much on vacation just standing still in my life.
- Wear comfortable walking shoes, we did lots of walking in our 2 days there, over 15 miles in two days!
- Bring your camera with lots of storage for pictures because the scenery, atmosphere and experience is worth capturing!
- Download the SavHGuide because it provides walking tours, GPS Directions/Maps, Photos, Historic Facts, Car Finder and so much more. For only 99 cents it is like having your own personal tour guide throughout the entire city of Savannah.
