My mom and I had an awesome time in Savannah last weekend.  About ninety nine percent of our fun comes just from being together, but Savannah definitely has a lot to offer.  We only had a weekend, which we filled to the max and I definitely think we could have stayed a bit longer.  I broke our trip down into what we did, and where we ate/drank/shopped/stayed.  Hopefully if you ever get a chance to visit Savannah this can give you some things to look forward to. I am so glad we got a chance to explore this city while I am living so close.  Enjoy!


Fiddler's Crab House
It was a rainy afternoon when we finally arrived so we did some shopping around and eventually headed down to the river front to eat at Fiddler's Crab House.  We loved it because even though it was raining we could still eat out on the covered patio and watch the huge cargo ships go by.

Soho South Cafe
A great spot for a quick bite between touring and shopping.  We both had the veggie panini (which was delicious), but we kept eyeing all the grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup combos being served all around us - yum!

Leopold's Ice Cream
Literally down the street from our hotel - amazing and very famous.  Tutti Frutti was our pick!

Chive Seabar & Lounge
We stopped here for late night cocktails on our first night and decided it was a must to go back to for dinner.  They claim to have the best oysters in Savannah - we don't disagree!


Chive Seabar & Lounge
We stopped here for late night cocktails after our ghost tour.  They had some fun cocktails - a bohemian for me and a twist on an old fashioned for mom.  The bar staff were super friendly and gave us the scoop on all the hot places to go out.

Jazz'd Tapas Bar
We stopped here to close out both of our nights in Savannah. We both love live music and they had bands both nights - cover bands that were pretty good! I had Sangria, mom had a mojito, and we split an order of truffle fries as a late night munchie.  This was a hidden gem, out of the fray but still lively!


I didn't get too many pictures of our favorite shops, because we were too busy shopping!  Here are the names and websites of the stores we enjoyed the most:

Red Clover Boutique:
The Paris Market:
The Grateful Hound:
Savannah Bee Company:

Byrd Cookie Company
We just happened to stumble upon this shop and kind of loved it!  They sell the cutest, yummiest, little cookies and you can literally try them all in their sampling station.  My favorite were the Georgia Peach Cobblers.


The Marshall House
This hotel came as a suggestion from a coworker and when I saw the website I just knew it's where we should stay.  It was such a cool experience to stay in such a historic hotel - literally the city's oldest.  


Hearse Ghost Tours
A beautiful and spooky nighttime tour of the city - good fun!

I enjoyed how walkable this city was, I loved all the squares, statues, and fountains commemorating history.  The spanish moss on all trees is spooky and lovely too!

Old Town Trolley Tours
This hop on hop off tour trolley was a great way to gather our bearings in they city and plan our next moves. We were able to stop and get off at all of our must see places like The beautiful Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist(below).

Savannah Riverboat Cruise
A good thing to do before we left Savannah but not too eventful and a bit chilly.  We got lots of pretty views of the Octoberfest festivities and the pretty city lights.

If you ever get the chance to spend some time in Savannah - do, and enjoy!
