What comes to mind when you think of the South? Whether you’re looking for a great step into solo travel or just want to see what all the fuss is about, Savannah is a wonderful choice!
How could I possibly go to Savannah during my Year of Movie Moments and not do a post about Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil? I couldn’t! And would you believe I watched it for the first time just two days before my trip? I did!
Ah, Savannah, Georgia. It’s the best of the South and then some, y’all. Nashville has gotten too “big city” for me, Atlanta has the busiest airport in the world (no thanks!), and a certain popular Southern city just one state up from Georgia is a little too… pretentious. But Savannah’s charm and sincerity really make it shine. Here are the top 10 things I love about Savannah!
The first time I went to Savannah, I made the mistake of going with a friend who didn’t want to pay for anything! Now, I am a self-proclaimed penny pincher, but when I travel, I’m willing to pay for experiences and things that I can’t do anywhere else!
So, the first thing you need to do is book a flight to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV). The next thing you need to do is buy something in seersucker, get a hairbow (or bowtie for the gentlemen readers), and put these 10 things at the top of your Savannah to-do list!
I love a good bed and breakfast! When I found out my husband had to take a business trip, I started looking for a place to take my own “business trip,” and Savannah has been on the top of my list for a long time. When I travel solo, I miss my husband like a crazy person. But I also get to do things he doesn’t enjoy like I do: historic house tours, heat and humidity, and… bed and breakfast accommodations!
As I write this post, I’m sitting at the Savannah airport waiting out a 5-hour delay, and I’m stuffed! I’m totally, completely, up-to-my-eyeballs stuffed with good, sweet, rich, beautiful Southern food! Savannah now holds the top spot in my travels as the most surprising foodie city. Can you believe it? Here’s proof!
The one thing you need to know about Savannah: the people are so kind! I just love Savannah with its Spanish moss-covered trees, monuments, squares, and the food! Oh, the food is incredible. You won’t leave angry and you won’t leave hungry, but you will leave ready to start planning your next trip already. But before you even get there, here are a few things to know before you go!
