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!

Welcome to my Travel blog! Some of you may not know that this is not my first rodeo on the blogging scene. I wrote an entertainment and lifestyle blog for an NYC based PR Firm back in 2011 before my business took off and got a little busy. I have traveled abroad and domestically at my leisure and for work since 2005 and I have many stories to share. I was first introduced to international travel by my parents. They took me along with them on a missions trip to Germany and halfway through the trip, I hopped on a bus by myself and crossed the border into France. I spent the weekend exploring Paris on my own back when solo trips were not popular. I was 25 years old with a YOLO attitude and just could not be that close to the "City of Lights" without making a visit. That is when the travel bug hit! I was recently inspired to start blogging again after my trip to Cuba, and this time, create a blog for myself. When I first started traveling on a more consistent basis and internationally, I was 25 years old, single and working full time as contract travel Occupational Therapist. I met my husband of almost ten years along the way and he said that one of the things that attracted me to him was my love for travel. He got himself a passport and we have continued to see the world since then, kids and all!
