Savannah, Georgia | Summer Fridays Series, Week 2
Summer doesn’t necessarily mean it’s time to slow down. While many travelers prefer leisurely beach getaways, there’s others can’t resist the energy of new cities.
If you’re part of the latter group, we found the perfect weekend escape. With so much to see and explore, there’s no chance of slowing down in Savannah. But don’t worry, we already found the must-dos for your itinerary…
Savannah Historic District
It’s one of the most popular areas of Savannah for first-time visitors, but with good reason: the Historic District is picturesque, walkable, and filled with places to explore.
It’s home to a variety of boutiques, parks, museums, landmarks and more. Some places worth visiting include:
- The First African Baptist Church, believed to be the oldest black church in the country
- Chippewa Square, the site of the bench scenes in Forrest Gump
- The Prohibition Museum, dedicated to the Prohibition Era and featuring a fully-stocked speakeasy
- Jones Street, often called one of the prettiest streets in America
- Davenport House Museum, a historic Federal-style home that provides a glimpse into 1820s Savannah
Also located in the Historic District, Husk is a modern menu housed in a historic, late 19th-century home. The menu reimagines Southern food, highlighting local ingredients and changing with the season. Might we suggest their whiskey flight?
Inspired by the magnolia trees of the South, it’s perfect for a day wandering around Savannah. Notes of Magnolia, Waterlily and Musk create a green, floral scent that evokes its namesake.
