8 most “instagramable” places in Savannah, Ga
Savannah is one of the most historic and beautiful cities in the South. It is also a travel bloggers dream. My family and I recently spent about 5 days in Savannah for a family reunion. We got in town a few days early, put on our waking shoes and enjoyed the scenery.
I have compiled a list of the 8 most “instagramable” places in Savannah for your enjoyment. Head out to each location before noon. It will be much cooler if you are visiting during the Summer and you won’t have a crowd of people in the background of your photos.
1). Rainbow Row on Washington Square: Historic Row Home, built in 1892 in Savannah.
Located at the intersection of Price and E. Bryant Street.
2). The Olde Pink House: 23 Abercorn Street.
Adjacent to the Planters Inn, a historic Savannah hotel is The Olde Pink House, one of Savannah’s most popular restaurants. The Olde Pink House was built in the 18th century.
3). The Gardens at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum: 41 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.
Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum housed in the William Scarbrough House is home to the largest private gardens within the historic district of Savannah. The garden is free to enter.
4). The Owens- Thomas House: 124 Abercorn Street.
The house was designed by the young English architect William Jay (1792-1837), one of the first professionally-trained architects practicing in the United States. The elegant residence was built from 1816-1819 for cotton merchant and banker Richard Richardson and his wife Frances Bolton. The garden is open to the public and free to walk through and take photos.
5). Forsyth Park: Between Drayton and Whitaker Streets (east and west) and Gaston and Park Streets (north and south).
Forsyth Park was laid out in the 1840’s. It is the largest park in the historic district of Savannah Georgia. The Park covers 30 acres of land.
6). Wormsloe Plantation: 7601 Skidaway Road
Savannah, GA 31406 (you will need a car to get there). Wormsloe Plantation is the colonial estate of Noble Jones (1702–1775). Jones was a carpenter who arrived in Georgia in 1733 with James Oglethorpe and the first group of settlers from England. Wormsloe’s tabby ruin is the oldest standing structure in Savannah.
7). Historic Jones Street
Jones Street is known as the most beautiful Street in Savannah. Street parking is available. Don’t forget to have change for the meters.
8). Tybee Island: 20 minute drive from Historic Savannah.
The island is the easternmost point in Georgia. Fun fact, Tybee Island is home to the first of what would eventually become the Days Inn
chain of hotels.
This list is just the start. Savannah has so much to offer. Beauty is on every corner and in each square. I would love to see your photos from my list when you visit Savannah!
