I mentioned yesterday that A and I spent our dateaversary weekend in Savannah and I almost left it at that. But then I started going through my photos from the trip and I just couldn’t skip sharing them with you.
Savannah is a bit of an amateur photog’s paradise. Gorgeous buildings everywhere, only minutes away from an island with a real lighthouse and more history than you could shake a stick at. A was so patient with me as I went bonkers over railings and corbules and window trim. He held my bag while I snapped away at everything I could and completely altered our walking route when I just had to go down one more street in the Victorian district. Even our hotel had a ton of photo-worthy spots.
If the scenery was great, the food was spectacular. I cannot recommend Vic’s on the River and b. Matthews Eatery enough. We ate dinner and breakfast, respectively and loved both places. We both ate as much seafood as possible. I am personally proud of my “three crab cakes in one and a half days” record.
We explored the city in two ways: by trolley tour and by foot. I highly recommend the trolley tour, especially when it’s hot. You get to see more in less time, with a nice breeze and some historical context while still having the option to get off and explore at your own pace. We used Old Town Trolley Tours and totally found it to be worth the price. What was a tad disappointing was the ghost tour from the same company. For a city as haunted as Savannah, I was decidedly underwhelmed by my first ghost tour experience.
On Sunday, we made the trek out to Tybee Island prior to heading home. This detour was so worth it! I couldn’t get enough of the lighthouse or the views from the top. We opted to climb the 178 steps to the top and it was breathtaking (literally and figuratively) up there.
And now, no more writing. Just photo oogling.
