How To Do Savannah, Georgia In A Weekend

A few weeks ago my family and I took a trip to Savannah and this is probably a very unpopular opinion but it wasn't all that it's cracked down to be. We had three full days to spend in Savannah and by day three I think we were all wishing we had only spent two days here and left the third day onto Ormond Beach. So if you're ever planning a trip to Savannah, I wanted to share how you can do it all in just a weekend. 

Saturday: Spend your day exploring The Historic District. You can start off with breakfast at The Paris Market which is both a gift shop and café. Hands down one of the cutest shops in Savannah and definitely picture worthy.



You can continue to shop your way through Savannah from there with all of the cute little shops. I highly recommend stopping in Capital Bee Company. A cute little shop with a honey bar in the back corner - the honey is SO good. Also if you have pup, you'll definitely want to stop into Woof Gang Bakery. They had them everywhere in Savannah it seemed like, so you won't miss it. 


Then, stop in for a midday pick-me-up coffee at The Coffee Fox - I got the Horchata Latte and it was delicious! 


After you're finished in The Historic District, make your way to River Street - I think this is where I spent the most money! Most definitely make a stop into Wet Willie's. Did you know in Savannah you can walk around with your alcoholic drinks? I got a mango slushy and my mom got a pina colada one - so good. 


And you MUST stop into the River Street Market. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw the super cute rings I snagged at this market. One from Plantation Jewels and the other from JK Designs. I think we all loved River Street and there was a cute boutique we popped into while leaving! 

There are lots of restaurants along River Street, but we had reservations at The Olde Pink House. It was a cute place and I got a pasta dish with shrimp and scallops, but my family didn't really care for it too much. To end your day and grab some dessert, head over to Leopold's. You'll more than likely have to wait in a line, but it's 100% worth it. Take a walk through Forsyth Park as you enjoy your ice cream.


Sunday: Take a day trip to Tybee Island. Honestly if I were ever going to go back to Georgia I would stay in Tybee Island. Unfortunately about 10 minutes of us getting to the beach we had to leave because it started to storm, but we waited it out in the car and after about half an hour it stopped and we went back to the beach for a little. Besides the beach, I wanted to wonder the town, check out the Light Station, and visit some of the local boutiques but the rain had other plans! I also wanted to check out Sweetie Pies for some gelato, but they're only open on weekends. 

We ate dinner at A-J's Dockside which was delicious! It was a cute little restaurant right on the water. We got there around 4-4:30 which was perfect timing because we had no wait, but if you went later in the evening and sat outside you would've gotten a gorgeous view of the sunset. 

I also got zero cell service on Tybee Island, so if you're looking to get away from everything for a weekend this is a good place to go!

If you've been to Savannah before, what were you favorite things to do or places to go?
