A Savannah Romance



Description:

Savannah is the perfect romantic getaway spot for the weekend if you enjoy a quaint town with unmatched Southern hospitality. The town has retained much of its colonial flavor, and boasts some gorgeous architecture as the city was built around 29 or so squares. Savannah is the perfect place to escape if you want to lounge in Victorian style inns and carriage houses, enjoy delicious food and stroll along picturesque streets. Stay at the Ballastone Inn or the Marshall House for a taste of true Southern elegance in historic surroundings. Take a riverboat cruise to see Savannah from the water. Enjoy award winning cuisine in elegant decor at 700 Drayton and the many fine dining establishments Savannah has to offer. You'll find the problem isn't finding a restaurant, but deciding which one to spend one of your precious nights at. Stop by the Chart House for a drink and relaxing views of the river or check out the jazz often in the upstairs of 700 Drayton. Stroll through the cobblestone streets at night and wonder what love would have been like in the 1800s. After this weekend, you'll be itching for the next time you can enjoy some Southern hospitality.

Also, check out the unscheduled items for some more recommended hotels, restaurants and things to do!

Day 1 - Savannah


After arriving in Savannah, explore the city's charm first by foot. Whether you choose to stay at the Marshall House or the Ballstone Inn, both are within walking distance from many of the city's romantic restaurants, like Sapphire Grill, and attractions. Broughton Street offers visitors some charming window shopping opportunities. If you and your sweetie enjoy gallery browsing, be sure to stop at both the Jepson Center for the Arts and Gallery 209. Aside from a collection of works by prominent artists like Richard Avedon and Roy Lichtenstein, the Jepson also features work by Georgia artists and traveling exhibitions! For more local artists' work, Gallery 209 provides viewers a more intimate look at contemporary works. After admiring the beauty in art with your significant other, head to Elizabeth on 37th to admire the beauty in food. It's past the Victorian District, but well worth the distance. Alternately, if you'd prefer to keep within walking distance of the hotel, Sapphire Grill offers delicious food. Ask for a more secluded table where you and your honey and can enjoy the fresh cuisine. Enjoy an after dinner drink and dessert at the Chart House where you can wax romantic while watching the evening river traffic float by. Head back to your hotel, whether you choose to stay at the luxurious, award winning Ballastone Inn or the charming Marshall House. Both provide excellent examples of Southern hospitality at its finest.
