do in savannah

this here will be the last installment of the savannah city guide. hope you'll get to experience savannah soon. we loved it.

DO a ghost tour. we had the famous robert edgerly who was as old savannah as it gets and full of creepy stories and a historian to boot! we even shared a drink with him in a haunted hotel. fantastic!



DO get your drinks to go. every bar has plastic cups for your roadies.



have you tried an old fashioned? i suggest you do.

DO soak up all of the beautiful flowers and greenery. the gardens in savannah are similar to charleston and there is no shortage of vines on houses. one of my favorite things.











DO be careful walking on cobblestone in high heels.





these stairs were particularly frightening!

DO spend lots of time admiring the incredible architecture and ironwork. stunning.



if this house wasn't haunted i'd want to live here. i still do actually.







DO spend an entire day at forsyth park like we did.





DO take silly pictures of each other in front of a turquoise building.





DON'T wait in ridiculous lines for overly fried food.



as you can tell i'm not really in to typically "touristy" things. i basically just like to walk around and eat!

make sure you enter the giveaway. time a tickin'!

Ohhh, Savannah is one of my very favorite places, your post has me wanting to visit!

The Lady and Sons is over hyped and over prices, for sure, but it's also pretty darn tasty. I managed to go one night when there wasn't a line! Not worth waiting, though. That's for sure!
