True romantics know that fine dining is a must. Complete with candles, dim lighting and mahogany furniture, the interior of Local 11Ten Food & Wine was surely designed with lovebirds in mind. Alligator Soul, a cozy restaurant inside a refurbished grain warehouse basement, is known for its romantic ambiance as well as its usage of local and organic ingredients. Wine and dine inside a 19th century mansion at 700 Drayton Restaurant, a restaurant with six elegant and intimate dining rooms overlooking Forsyth Park.

6. Enjoy a Couples Spa Experience

It's not a true Savannah getaway without a little pampering, and a couples spa experience will surely bring you closer together. For those staying at the luxurious Perry Lane Hotel, you can treat you and your partner to a personal couples spa experience. Choose between an hour-long massage or facial (or both!), and a masseuse will come to your room for personal pampering session. 

7. A Sunrise View at Tybee Island

There is nothing more romantic than watching a sunrise at the beach – so it’s no surprise that Tybee Island is a top option for a romantic getaway. For optimum sunrise viewing, watch the action from the Tybee Pier and Pavilion. Walk along the beach, write in the sand and hold hands as you watch the sun come up for a delightfully cheesy romantic date.
