Today is a little something different on the blog. One of my other passions besides photography is traveling. I love seeing new cities and photographing them. There is something about the adventure of going somewhere I have never been. I never get tired of it. This time I was able to fit in Savannah and Charleston.. ( which is next on the blog!)
On our way down to Florida, we stopped into Savannah. I fell in love with this city, its weeping willows, Southern hospitality and Southern charm. City Market is very charming with it’s cobblestone sheets lined with shops. Check out the candy store, Savannah’s Candy Kitchen.. filled with every candy imaginable. I had smores, which were amazing and later ice cream from a cute little old fashioned ice cream shop. Leopold’s. Suffice to say I blew my healthy eating.. but that’s part of living a little, right?
We did a little shopping on Broughton Street, and took a walking tour of Historic Downtown. We tried to eat at Paula Deen’s restaurant but it is very popular and needed reservations to get in. We ended up having lunch at the Bohemian Hotel.. which had awesome rooftops views of the city.
We stopped at the fountain Savannah is famous for, Forsyth Park. I have never seen so many photographers doing shoots at one time. I kind of wanted to photo bomb one! Hehe. I wish we had time for some of the beautiful plantations.. next time! I know there was so much I wanted to see and missed.
I will definitely be back for a weekend trip to this beautiful city! And stop off at Tybee Island. I recommend this city for a romantic getaway. So much to see and do and wonderful restaurants.
