Two of my first friends in New York are from Savannah, GA. While I grew up in the South, I'd never been to this incredible foodie, beach town until last week. I'm pumped to finally cross it off my list of destinations and anxiously await my next visit.
For our first two summers in the city, we did the typical firework watching along the river. Don't get me wrong, the New York City fireworks are some of the best in the world, but it definitely was nice to escape the rush and do something a bit different for the long weekend.
Morgan and Haley were very generous to invite a crew of us down to experience their hometown and take in the slower pace of the South. And having just been to my hometown for a family wedding the weekend before, it was really nice to have a vacation from my vacation.
Much of our time was spent lounging by the pool, so I won't give a breakdown of the day. (The pictures will do the talking.) Regardless, feel free to comment below or send me an email if you find yourself planning a trip to Savannah in the near future. A few highlights though: Sundae Cafe, Zunzi's, North Beach at Tybee Island, Paris Market, Polkadots, Savannah Yacht Club, and City Market.
Furthermore, the Savannah airport is a sight to take in on its own, and the free snacks provided by JetBlue made me smile.
Everything in Savannah should be captured in a photo. A few of mine are below. Also, shoutout to my friends for championing this creative pursuit and acting as models in a few snapshots.
