Wander {Wednesday} Girl’s Getaway in Savannah

· Spanish Moss & Old Southern Charm ·

November 10, 2016 0 Comments

A couple weeks ago, a few girlfriends and I met up for a weekend of girl time! 


Destination:  Savannah, GA

Time of the Year:  Autumn {October}

Where to Stay:

Find a nice AirBnB or vacation rental in the historic district.  You’ll feel like a local and probably end up saving money too!

Eat & Drink

Fancy Dinner:  The Olde Pink House – Get dressed up and enjoy dinner at this charming restaurant.  Service is excellent, the cocktails are pretty and tasty, and there is a fun and cozy first level tavern with live music below the restaurant.

Vegetarian / Vegan Friendly Dinner:  Kayak Cafe – Nice place to take a break from a day full of indulgences.

Brunch:  Collins Quarter – Make sure to try a fun coffee, like the Vanilla Lavender pictured below, or one of the boozy options.  The Bloody Mary’s looked amazing and the sip I sneaked from my friend’s confirmed they are as good as they looked.  Make sure you are not short on time.  While the food was great, the service was slow.  So, sit back and relax.


Sweets: River Street Sweets – Sample the freshly made pralines and warm saltwater taffy.  There is also popcorn, fudge, and an sprawling assortment of other tempting sweets.

Things to Do

Strolling with an Adult Beverage:  Savannah permits open containers, so take advantage and enjoy your drink of choice while exploring the historic district.

Halloween Haunt House: Alee Shriners’ Terror Plantation – Two our of four of us were in for some Halloween scares, but that wasn’t enough of a majority to commit us to this adventure.  I read some great reviews, and I’m sure if we had made it, we would have been well scared.

Ghost Tour of Savannah: Ghost City Tours – A must do!  When in historic Savannah, do a tour!  It’s a fun way to get your bearings on the historic district.

Best Photo Ops

Forsyth Park Fountains:

Forest Gump Bench:  We never did find it, but that was mainly from lack of motivation.  We were having too much fun just strolling.  It’s actually in Chippewa Square, and I’m not sure we ended up wandering through that square.

Autumn Decor at River Street Sweets:




I'm Rose. Nice to meet you! :) I'm a Southern transplant from the Northeast. I have two fur baby pups, Pippa and Watson, and the best partner a girl could ever ask for, Paul. I'm a believer of making the most of every moment. As much as I might try to slow down, busy seems to me my word. I'm a busy person, with a busy mind, and a ever growing list of things to do, places to go, books to read, recipes to make, and things to learn! I started this blog in the winter of 2013 as a way to allow family and friends {800+ miles away} to be a part of our lives. It's also served as a creative outlet for me to share projects, photos, travel, passions, thoughts, and a couple recipes. Being a first time home owner, we've been on a quest to transform our cookie cutter house into a home. ❤ I hope you enjoy this creative space.
