Touring Through Savannah

Happy Sunday, everyone!

I have finally finished sorting through and editing all the pictures from my trip to Savannah. In this post you will find 1) what I wore to tour through the beautiful Historic District and 2) my favorite shots of that day, particularly of the spectacular architecture all around the city. This is a picture-dense post.

group picture!
We met these Colombian folks on our first afternoon in Savannah on River Street, and we kept bumping into them over the next few days! Here's a group picture of all of us, excluding my dad, who took the picture.

In case you didn't know, Forrest Gump is my favorite movie, ever. So I was ecstatic about visiting all the Forrest Gump hot spots in Savannah. Chippewa Square was the site of the iconic bench scences. The bench is actually in the Savannah Museum of History, which I entered to use the restroom but didn't realize that's where the bench was so I didn't get to see it in person! :( 
Next time.

Mr. Gump himself! Haha. Old Savannah Tours takes you through the Historic District and arranges meetings with some of Savannah's most important historical residents.

Our waitress was very nice and gave us lots of neat tips for our trip.
And I will leave you with this deliciousness right here. My dinner plate from The Olde Pink House: fried pork chops, mac n' cheese, and a side of baked sweet potato (not pictured). It was oh so yummy.

In my best Homer Simpson voice: Hmmmmm, pork chops....

So, in summary, I loved Savannah. Can you tell? 
Savannah gives you modern city living (complete with hipsters...not pictured) in a city with historic, southern charm. Time is characteristically slowed down, there's beauty all around you, and there's no traffic! However, I can only speak to the Historic District. Truthfully, I did not venture out of this area. 
I'd definitely go back and visit some house museums, and, of course, go see the Forrest Gump bench!

Thanks for reading!

  3. I am so glad you shared this! I have been wanting to get to Savannah for a couple of years now! And this just entices me even more! My favorite part is the spanish moss. It just adds so much romanticism to the city. And I definitely need to check out that ice creamery!
