What are the best places to eat and drink in Savannah?

We stayed at River Street Inn. There was a restaurant on the first floor called Huey's and a bar on the second floor called Tubby's. We loved both of those locations as they were right on the riverfront and had great food, atmosphere, and it was fun to watch all of the people walking along river street. The Olde Pink House was the best, but make reservations way in advance!

What are the best things to do in Savannah?

We did two ghost tours, toured Bonaventure Cemetery and Wormsloe Plantation, we did a culinary tour, a day trip to Tybee island, a walking history tour, we toured the Mercer-William's house, and the Owens-Thomas House, and we spent lots and lots of time waking the squares, shopping at City Market, walking River Street, eating great food everywhere, ice cream at Leopold's, and so much more. We loved every minute of it, and we were there for a whole week, so lots of time to explore!

What is the best tip for celebrating your anniversary in Savannah?

We loved staying at River Street Inn! They had a complimentary daily happy hour with rocking chairs on the porch overlooking River Street. We also did a dinner cruise to celebrate our anniversary. It was fun to get out on the water, and the food was great!

We LOVED the Baobab Lounge in the JW Plant Riverside, M Cafe, and The Collin’s Quarter at Forsyth Park. Each had amazing food, service and atmosphere. The Collin’s Quarter was great because the food was incredible and our daughter loved the playground outside.

Crystals Beer Parlor! The oldest restaurant in Savannah. The food was delicious especially the fried green tomatoes. All kinds of old pictures hang on the walls. It is a very cool place.

Hop On Hop Off Old Town Trolley was a great tour and we used it as a mode of transportation for the day too! The tour was very informative and told us a lot about the history of Savannah. We also used it to get to Forsyth Park for our pictures that day!

Bring your walking shoes! It is a walking city and we walked everywhere! We only need an Uber to and from the airport. It is a beautiful city with so much to see and walking is the best way.

Unless you’re there in Winter prepare for different levels of humidity. Also, it’s a pretty casual town so do go overboard with dressing up for dinners & nights out.

Come often! ;) But seriously, coming from a frequent visitor- take in everything at a leisurely pace on foot. It’s hot during the summers, but still worth it! Or Catch the hop-on-hop off trolley for a fun mode of transportation around the city!

Savannah is a great town with friendly people, great food and a laid back vibe. Take the 2 hour walking tour. It is worth it. And make Wormsloe Park a destination. It isn't far from Savannah.

What is your best overall travel tip for Savannah?

My favorite thing to do in Savannah is to just take time to explore the beautiful squares, get lost in her charming streets with gorgeous homes, and eat all the amazing food (Olde Pink House and Collin's Quarter are great!). It's a beautiful city with a lot to see and do, but taking the time to just appreciate the beauty is my favorite thing to do while there!

Aside from Paris, you won't find another city that is so perfectly set up for a picnic. They have the most beautiful parks and squares right in the city and allow libations with your packed meal.
