Brunching with your gal pals is an absolute must while in Savannah! Bloody marys and mimosas, shrimp and grits, waffles with fresh berries, smashed avocado on toast – need we say more? Check out these great brunch options.
4. Sip the day away
Savannah is becoming quite the brew spot! Tour brewing facilities like Southbound Brewing Co., Coastal Empire Beer Co. or Service Brewing Co. while sipping and sampling craft beer. These breweries often host events like live bands and outdoor games. Moon River Brewing Co. has a wonderful beer garden, so you can sit, sip, sample and relax in the sun. Some Saturdays, Southbound Brewing Co. hosts ‘Pints & Poses,’ an event in which you and your girlfriends can have a little yoga with your beer!
If beer isn't your drink of choice, take a tour at Ghost Coast Distillery and see how vodka is made. Afterwards, head to Ghost Coast's tasting room to a variety of hand-crafted cocktails made with their vodka.
5. Get ready for serious photo-opsBright sunshine, Spanish moss and historic buildings are a recipe for the perfect Instagram backdrop. Get underneath the tunneled trees at Wormsloe State Historic Site. Go down to River Street along the waterfront. Immerse yourself in greenery and bright azaleas in one of Savannah’s 22 historic squares. You’ll have endless opportunities to practice your poses, get together for group photos and “smize” like Tyra Banks – no filter needed!
6. Plan a beach day at Tybee Island
Savannah’s beach, Tybee Island, is only 20 minutes away from the Historic District! Grab your bikinis, hats and beach blankets and spend a day soaking up the sun. Grab frozen daiquiris, chow down on fresh seafood and dig your toes into the sand!
7. Shop like a mad woman
Boutiques, vintage shops, art galleries, famous designers – no matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find it in Savannah! Shop at Satchel for a Savannah-made leather bag. Wander through The Paris Market for French themed knick-knacks. Check out one-of-a-kind glass jewelry at Liquid Sands Glass Gallery. You’ll have your friends back home asking, “Where did you get that!?”
