Kevin & Meredith's Itinerary
Savannah is filled with monuments to the men and women who have served their country. The 1779 Siege of Savannah during America’s Revolution is commemorated with memorials to Revolutionary War heroes Casimir Pulaski and William Jasper at Monterey and Madison Squares, and a monument for Haitian soldiers who supported the colonists during the siege at Franklin Square. The Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is just outside of town, where visitors and student groups can see planes flown in World War II and exhibits detailing what life was like for the Mighty Eighth.
Sit Back with a Brew
Beer and brewing aficionados will feel right at home in Savannah. The Crystal Beer Parlor, established in 1933, was one of the first dining establishments to serve alcohol after the repeal of Prohibition. Today, the Crystal serves everything from fresh salads to handmade burgers and sweet potato fries alongside a wide selection of Georgia- and Savannah-made beers. Shoppers on both River Street and Broughton Street can buzz into the Savannah Bee Company for a free mead sampling, each variety made from Savannah Bee honey.
Bring Your Best Friend
With a city as walkable as Savannah, it’s no surprise to find we have lots of businesses that are Fido-friendly. Hotels that accept pets are available in every price range and every part of the city, including such popular accommodations as The Brice, The Mansion on Forsyth Park, and The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa on Hutchinson Island.
Lunch with a View
Stop for a rest at one of Savannah’s many restaurants with the option to dine outdoors. Sip a latte at The Collins Quarter, with a walk-up coffee bar. Kayak Kafe on Broughton Street is the perfect place to people-watch while you nosh on local, organic and hormone-free ingredients in salads, tacos and sandwiches. Or shop City Market’s boutiques and galleries and stop for lunch at Belford’s Savannah Seafood & Steaks, recognized by Southern Living, The New York Times and Conde Nast Traveler.
