Over spring break, we took a fun little get-a-way to Savannah GA. I’ve been so busy since we got back catching up that I never found the time to do a post about all the places we visited.
This post is a work in progress, so here’s just a peek of our time a short list of some places we visited.
Lodging: Creek Fire Motor Ranch-
We took our camper of course, but most campgrounds have ‘tiny houses’ or cute log cabins you can rent. This campground offered a trolley to downtown Savannah AND had so many fun amenities on site like a huge pool, a game room, basketball, tennis, a pond for fishing and golf cart rentals.
Dining: Green Truck Pub(the BEST), River Street Sweets(a MUST), Molly McPherson’s Scottish Pub, B’s Cacklin BBQ, Soda Pop Shoppe, Black Rifle Coffee Co.(less than 2 miles from campground. BEST coffee in town)
Shopping: E. Shaver Bookseller(the cutest book shop ever), Paris Market(overpriced, but the candles smell amazing), Nine Line Apparel(support the troops!)
Places to See: Wormsloe(beautiful+short hiking trail), River Street(a MUST), All the squares(bring a picnic+football), Forsyth Park(farmers market on Saturdays+huge playground &shade)
Transportation: Old Town Trolley
Parking: We parked FREE when we used the Trolley in their small parking lot but it was super limited. We also used a parking deck off Liberty Street on another day that was a great location to walk wherever you wanted to go.
One of our favorite things to do in Savannah is get sweets from River Street Sweets and just sit along River Street and people watch. Sometimes there are people out playing their instruments for tips. The funniest is the man with the trumpet as he plays songs to go along with whoever is walking by like the Rocky Theme, Here comes the bride, etc. When he busted out Baby Shark, well, here’s what happened:
I always leave Savannah wanting to see, do and eat SO much more, but with kids in tow, there’s only so much ground you can cover. We had a fantastic trip during a perfect time of year when the azaleas were in full bloom.
I can’t wait to go back!
Savannah is a short 2 hour or less drive from Charleston! I call it Charleston’s little sister. It’s such a charming place and has become my favorite escape town over the years.
