Last weekend we celebrated our anniversary by taking a trip to Savannah, Georgia. Savannah’s somewhere I have always wanted to go, and was the perfect place for two history buffs to relax for a few days.
We stayed in the most beautiful historic inn called the Dresser Palmer House. This inn was originally two houses from 1876 that were joined to create a 16 room establishment that prides itself on having the longest porch in Savannah. We particularly enjoyed the gourmet breakfasts each morning, complimentary cocktail evenings, and lazying it up and watching the world go by from the front porch. Added bonus that it is just one block away from Forsyth Park- the prettiest park in town! Highly, highly recommend to anyone and everyone wishing to recline in style in this beautiful southern city!
We had absolutely ideal weather Friday and Saturday, which I swear I could not stop remarking on- when you have a desk job, having nice weather on days off means that much more! We made sure to stop by some of the town’s historic landmarks…
And not so historic landmarks…
Of course, horses had to be incorporated somehow into the mix, so we took a tour around on a carriage ride. It was interesting to talk to the driver and hear about Rose’s history, and while we learned that maybe no one tells the history of Savannah the same way, we enjoyed our ride around town. We also took a ghost tour for fun, and our guide was also a horsewoman, and I have a very interesting lead on an Azteca horse to follow up on!
Overall, the trip was the perfect time for us to get away from the worries of our normal life, and take the time to just be with one another. We’ll be back one day, and I can’t wait!
Looks like a great trip! I’ve been to Charleston many times but never Savannah.
I had only been to Charleston before as well, and there are definitely some similarities! I was surprised that there were very few kids around- I think because most/all of the touristy stuff is history related, it draws a slightly different crowd than Charleston. Though I love Charleston too!
Awww girl scout headquarters! Looks like a wonderful trip!
I was a Girl Scout for over 20 years (yes, I’m cool!), so I had to get a pic! 🙂
So was I! Haha! Big time cool factor 😉
Awesome! Girl Scouts unite! HA!
