Savannah, Georgia

My love for Savannah started on a father / daughter trip about five years ago –  obviously I got to pick the destination – and something very strange happened to me…I felt at home there and that took me by surprise. I enjoy Texas, where I was born, and I love New York,  the place where my work and dreams are, but every time I get down to this small southern town I get that feeling of peace, that I am where I belong. Savannah has so much of what I love about New York to it: it’s walkable, has great restaurants, beautiful parks, great coffee, art, interesting people, antiques and historic dreaminess. I’ve gone back every year since over and over again, tweaking my list of must-dos, and must-eats. Here is my guide to Savannah if you’re just visiting like me or thinking about going to SCAD one day.

HAPPY HOUR

  • The Olde Pink House (basement bar, live piano music)
  • Rocks on the River (rooftop view where you can watch dolphins swim by at sunset, best Bloody Mary’s!)
  • Perch
  • P.S.- in the downtown historic district you can “take a soldier to go” and walk around with your drink!

This is just a handful of our favorites! Savannah is full of much more from galleries, big brand shops such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, endless cuisines from around the world, and unlimited hotel / B&B options. There just isn’t enough time to try everything but these are the places we find ourselves going back to over and over again.

PS- I’d love to hear your favorite places so I can try them out next time!
