City Series: Savannah

Savannah: The Hostess City of the South

As a born and raised Southerner, I’ve acquired a certain fascination for Southern cities. Each has its own unique sophistication. Savannah is definitely one of those cities. Its dreamy Spanish moss-laden oak trees and quintessential city squares are what make it an extremely charming city. I’ve been there a couple of times before, but recently my husband and I went for a weekend away just the two of us. We had a delightful time taking in the history and culture of this beautiful southern city! And I think you would too, so here are my top sights and bites for the city of Savannah, GA!
