I’ve always fancied myself a Northern Yankee, but since living here in college, I have had a place in my heart for Savannah, GA. It’s a local like no other and is filled with mysterious gardens, delectable eats, historic architecture and scorching nights. It’s been voted one the 10 most beautiful paces to visit and that is so true! During my college days I didn’t appreciate it as much as when I visit now. It’s a such a little gem and the people and places that make it up are the exact reason why.
Where to stay: Bohemian Hotel http://www.bohemianhotelsavannah.com/
So if you’re like me, you enjoy staying in a place unlike the run of the mill hotel. We love Bohemian Hotel on the riverfront. The hotel is filled with some of the most beautiful works of art. The owner Richard Kessler certainly appreciates a vast art collection. http://grandbohemiangallery.com/ The hotel design elements evoke the 18th century era of maritime settlers, while modern luxuries and amenities bring a contemporary flare to guestrooms. The roof deck bar is the best! Get yourself a cool mint julep and watch the sun set in pure bliss. I especially loved the chandeliers in the bar area, they feature real oyster shells instead of the traditional crystal. Amazing!
Where to eat: Olympia Cafe http://olympiacafe.net/
We came down to Savannah for our dear friends Danielle & Sergio’s wedding last year. I always knew about Olympia Cafe but had not eaten there. Olympia Cafe sits along the Savannah Riverfront and has this old world Greek feel. When we arrived, the owner Nick, had a grand feast waiting for the everyone at the table. The food was out of this world delicious! The bride and groom knew the owner well, so we had the red carpet treatment the whole way. I had the Red Snapper Filet whole fish and a bounty of sides that felt like they just kept coming. Which was the best thing ever for this girl who loves to eat.
What to wear: Day to Night
Day: No doubt about it Savannah is a steamy town. You’ll want to wear something light and flowy and quite girly. Something like this sundress. While you are sipping a mimosa in the park or just strolling the beautiful streets, you want to be comfortable although chic.
Night: As the sun sets you’ll want to break out a little sassy! This scalloped sequin number is perfection! Take a swing By ZIA Boutique on 325 West Broughton Street for an accessory or two. It’s the best! https://www.ziaboutique.com/
What to do: Gardens, Homes & Pretty Things
Savannah is filled with illustrious gardens rich in mystery and historic homes of the deep south. There is so much to see while you stroll the streets and sip on a spiked sweet tea! Yes you can drink and walk around at the same time!!! Kinda the best thing ever!!!
