So, two weeks ago Price Charming and I visited one of my most favorite places! Savannah, GA!! I talk about it a lot, I know, but if you have been there you understand why. If you haven’t been there you should defiantly put it on your bucket list. We started our Georgia trip with a few days of R &R with my Grammy, then drove from Farm County to the beautiful, historic, river city of Savannah.
We knew we were going to have a great trip because I had my heart set on staying at the Westin Savannah Harbor Resort & Spa but being St. Paddy’s day everything was super expensive. Prince Charming is a thrill seeker, so we did one of those blind buys on Priceline. It gave us a price and a 4-Star rating or above, we entered our card and waited for the email letting us know where we were going to stay… and guess what?! We got the Westin and I will definitely try it again! My favorite thing about staying there was riding the water ferry every morning to and from the historic down town. What a fun way to commute.
I am a huge fan of reading all the signs and learning about the history of places. If I could have one super power it would be time travel. I love the old features of the city, dating from 1700’s – 1960’s. My favorite part of the trip was the historic tour on the hop on hop off bus. We got to hear all the history and then get out and explore.
I love the architecture and that the homes are set up along 22 green squares, it makes for the most breathtaking front yards and community spaces. While we were there, we saw a couple getting married in a square. What a great use of public lands! Most of the homes are from the 1800’s. Check out this bubbly glass, they don’t make it like that anymore.
We also visited the Mercer-Williams House. This home to me was so cool because I read Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil, which surrounded the events of Jim Williams, one of Savannah’s elite shooting his young lover in his home one night and the later trial. If books aren’t your thing take a trip to Savannah via the movie staring Kevin Spacey & John Cusack directed by Clint Eastwood.
We made our way home with some hot krispy kremes and wonderful memories. Where is one of your favorite cities?
