Travel: Savannah, GA

A few weeks ago, my friend Mecia drove down from Kansas to where I live in Alabama. We then made a road trip to Savannah, GA and the surrounding areas. :) We had a total blast. Lots and lots of good memories made. I thought I'd share some of the pictures from the trip!

There are so many cobblestone roads in Savannah. And lots of huge live oak trees with spanish moss flowing down from their branches. I think it looks like a mix of magical and creepy. LOL

It was COLD the day we were exploring Savannah. Like, mid 40's with some crazy wind. Good thing we brought our boots and scarves! Mecia really wanted to visit the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Sunday. She had never been inside a cathedral before, so we went there for a bit. There was this super cute coffee shop across the road called Mirabelle Cafe and we got some (really good) chai tea to warm us up. 

Selfie! (the only selfie that we took that Mecia actually likes... picky picky) 

Another cool place we visited was The Paris Market. It's basically like Anthropologie on steroids. Super cute displays, but crazy expensive prices. It was so fun to look through though. 

We took a free ferry ride over to Hutchinson Island so we could get a full view of River Street. We found out by accident that River Street is where all the bars are... oops. There are also cool places there to eat on River Street, like where we ate on Saturday night-- River House Seafood. Oh-- and don't forget the candy places! :D 

Here's Forsyth Park-- see all those beautiful/ scary trees?? 

One can't visit Savannah without eating some Leopold's ice cream! It was sooo good. Funny story here... since it's girl scout cookie season, there were some girl scouts selling cookies outside of Leopold's. They said they were $4 apiece or 5 for $20. We bought 5 because we thought we were getting a better deal... then while were eating ice cream, I realized... yeah, we just got suckered. By little girls. We felt super stupid. Although we DID enjoy our cookies later. ;)  

Mecia's choice-- Back in the Day Bakery. We had to make a trip back to Savannah from Hilton Head, SC before going home because Mecia wanted to go here so bad. But hey-- it's vacation! The cupcakes were amazing though.
  

Yummy yummy food at Sorry Charlie's Oyster Bar. We actually tried oysters!! :O

So many cute shops in Savannah. I mean, how PRETTY is this?! 

We had a fabulous time in Savannah. If you're ever in the area, I suggest checking out the places I mentioned! They're totally worth it! :) We also visited Tybee Island, GA and Hilton Head, SC on this trip, but I'll save those to share later. 

Have a great weekend!

We did an overnight there on the way home from Florida in 2010. Would love to go back, it's so cool. We did a ghost tour, always wanted to do that there. It was a lot of fun!
