I have visited Savannah on a regular basis since 2009 and it never gets old. There is so much to do and there are a few things that I still have not gotten around to doing. If you have never been to Savannah, this blog post will serve as your guide.
*See my previous post on where to take some amazing photos.
1). Mrs. Wilkes Boarding House: Mrs. Wilkes is the best place to get Southern Soul Food in Savannah. The restaurant is open Monday – Friday from 11am until 2pm and closed for the month of January. It is best to get in line for the restaurant by 9am and they only accept cash. Visit Mrs. Wilkes to see what is on the menu!
2). Savannah Slow Ride: 15 person bicycle tour that is 100% pedal powered. Choose from 6 tours that include a pub crawl, ghost tour and church crawl. For more information, visit: Savannah Slow Ride
3). Savannah Trolly Tour: Old Town Trolley Tours provides a hop on, hop off service that guides you through all of the historical sites in downtown Savannah. The trolley pass is good for 24 hours and comes with a gps service that lets you know how far away each bus is from every stop. Visit: Old Town Trolley
4). Forsyth Park: The fountain in Forsyth Park is a popular tourist destination. Forsyth Park is the largest park in the historic district of Savannah Georgia. The Park covers 30 acres of land just south of Gaston Street and north of Park Avenue. The east border of Forsyth Park is Drayton Street and on the west is Whitaker. Visit Forsyth Park for more information.
5). Bonaventure Cemetery: Bonaventure is considered one of the world’s most beautiful cemeteries. The cemetery has been around since 1846. The cemetery became famous when it was featured in the 1994 novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt, and in the movie, directed by Clint Eastwood, based on the book. Visit: Bonaventure Cemetery for more information.
6). River Street: River Street is home to a number of pubs, restaurants, bars, shops and nightlife. River Street
I have enjoyed each place on this list, but I still have not done the popular Savannah “ghost tour” or taken a ride on the Georgia Queen down the river. This gives me an excuse to go back!
