Printfresh Travel Guide: Savannah, GA

Recently, I packed up our whole family for a long road trip through the southeast. One of our travel destinations was Savannah, Georgia and I just loved the southern charm. While we didn’t have much time in Savannah, it was enough for me to get a good feeling for the town. This travel guide is as much for me as it is for you – I can’t wait to come back and visit some more great restaurants and historical sites.

Where to Stay

When we travel as a family we typically opt for an Airbnb over a hotel. We stayed in a beautiful townhome in the heart of Savannah's Historic District. It had an enclosed courtyard with cozy seating that was perfect for relaxing after a long day of exploring. If we travel to Savannah again with a large group of friends and family we would definitely like to check out this Airbnb. It has plenty of entertaining space, bunk beds perfect for kids and is filled with local art that highlights the history of Savannah with a modern twist. 

Looking for a hotel option? If Leo and I were on our own, we would have loved to book a room at the Perry Lane Hotel. It is a stunning luxury hotel with beautiful city views, three food and beverage venues and a gift shop that carries great contemporary brands and artwork.

Things to See in Savannah

While we didn’t have much time in Savannah to explore, we were able to see some beautiful architecture and enjoy time outdoors. If you are planning a longer visit, I recommend checking out this guide for more information on how to spend your time. 

Forsyth Park: This is the oldest public park in Savannah. I highly recommend walking around the park and discovering how beautiful the architecture is. Our kids were able to pick out some cat art for their rooms from a local artist.

Bonaventure Cemetery: We didn’t actually make it to the cemetery, but it looked beautiful. It is nearly 100 acres and they offer free guided tours. 

Riverstreet: If you're looking for a day full of exploring on River Street, you should definitely check out this guide. With nearly 75 boutiques, galleries, art studios and restaurants, there is definitely something for everyone.

Where to Eat/Drink

Since we were traveling with the kids, Leo and I didn’t have the chance to explore many unique food spots. However, these are some places I would love to try: 

Collins Quarter: Offering Brunch and Dinner, Collins Quarter is a bar, cafe and restaurant that serves Australian-accented meals. 

Le Cafe Gourmet: This gourmet cafe really has it all. From fresh artisan bread to savory lunch crepes, Le Cafe Gourmet is high up on my list for our next visit.

Olde Pink House: Voted Savannah’s most romantic restaurant, I would have loved it if Leo and I had the chance to dine here. Plus, I have a total thing for pink houses so this is right up my alley. They offer a southern cuisine and specialize in seafood, steak and cocktails.

Leopold’s Ice Cream: Based on Leopold’s crazy line, this place must have some of the best ice cream in Savannah.

Where to Shop

ShopSCAD Savannah: This is an amazing place to shop work from local SCAD students and alumni. They have everything from stationery to jewelry. 

The Paris Market: The Paris Market was full of all my favorite things: coffee, jewelry, beautiful clothing, books, and home products. Leo picked up a gorgeous charm bracelet for me from here and I absolutely love it.

Hygge: If you are looking to pick up a gift for someone you should definitely check out Hygge. They have gorgeous home, bath and beauty items and I was able to pick up some great gifts to take home for friends. *They are temporarily closed right now as they are moving to a new location, but you can shop online in the meantime.

The circle: The circle is a modern magical lifestyle shop filled with lots of gems and unique accessories.
