Savannah, Georgia: Highlights

Savannah, Georgia is full of history, beautiful scenery, and plenty of unique shops and restaurants.  It's one of my favorite places to visit!  I love to explore and find new spots around the town each time I go. 

I just wanted to post some highlights from our trip last weekend to celebrate a birthday!

Lulu's Chocolate Bar:  Chocolate covered strawberries were waiting for us when we got to our room.  They were amazing and definitely lived up to the hype!  Lulu's has been voted the best desserts in Savannah since 2008.


Old Savannah Trolley:  Savannah is a town best explored on foot.  I opted for an all-day on and off trolley tour with almost 20 stops to make sure we could fit all of the best spots into our one full day.  It was so convenient and it was full of historical information.

The Pirate's House:   We had a great lunch at The Pirate's House, one of the oldest buildings in Georgia and where Robert Louis Stevenson wrote part of Treasure Island.  The seafood was delicious!  I loved the colors on the outside of the building and thought it was a great place to snap some pictures.

Belford's:  City Market is full of shops, restaurants, and bars.  It is a must see in Savannah.  We shopped at a few boutiques before eating dinner on the patio at Belford's.  The weather was perfect (we just avoided the rain) and I loved the lobster ravioli which was voted Best Entree by Southern Living Magazine at the 2006 Taste of Savannah.  I might have also had a bite of the white chocolate bread pudding they brought out for the Birthday Boy.

Ghosts and Gravestones:  Whether you believe in a ghosts or not, it is still a unique activity to add to your trip.  The stories and the history alone are interesting enough!  We rode on a trolley and made a few stops at some "haunted" spots.

Broughton Street:  The best shopping is definitely on Broughton Street which features local boutiques and higher-end national chains.  Some of my favorites:  Kate Spade, Free People, The Paris Market, Lucy Lu's, Sylvester & Co.  I also had some of the best iced coffee from Sylvester & Co., a fair trade and organic Dreamy Coffee.  It's blended with chocolate and was the perfect shopping fuel!
