S A V A N N A H
En route up the East Coast, we stopped in beautiful Savannah to break up the drive. Our original plan was to make the complete drive from Tampa, FL to North Carolina (around 11 hours of driving) in one day, but decided to use some points and book a hotel to explore this old charming town, and I am so so happy that we did! We stayed in the historic downtown district of Savannah, and were just a few blocks from the water.

Our route was directed towards the river walk area, but our path from the hotel brought us through old shops, boutiques, and hotels within the City Market. The buildings were old and beautiful, and everything seemed to be out of a different time. Not to mention all the amazing different types of trees! (Weird, I know...)
I definitely understand the meaning of "southern charm" now. Nearly every sentence ended with a "ma'am" or "sir", and tea is served sweet. I was definitely a fan!
To get to this location, we actually had to go down an incredibly steep set of stairs from the main street up above. There was actually a sign before the stairs saying that these are historic stairs, and you should DEFINITELY watch your step. They were crazy! But I so loved the original cobblestone streets. Made the walk difficult in heels, but I managed. ;)
SUCH a beautiful day! We were so lucky!
Adorable shops lined the streets next to the water.
The Olde Pink House ( pictured above) was actually a suggestion given to me by a friend, and I was so glad we went! Aside from how incredibly photogenic the building is, the food was delicious and the interior was amazing! I mean with 4.5 stars after over 2000 reviews on yelp, how can you go wrong?! It was a great way to end our 24 hours in Savannah before returning to our trek up the coast.
More soon to come on the rest of our East Coast adventure! Going through all these pictures has me ready for another vacation. :D Any suggestions?
