Sometimes I feel inadequate in sharing these tips.  These are just my experiences and may not be the best for you.  However, I have a secret weapon!

My fellow travel lovers and followers on IG are THE BEST. They send me tips and tricks of their own, which I love to coordinate into a better list for you.

This post comes from our experience, but also their tips.  Big thanks to them!  Want to also share travel tips and experiences?  Text “travel tips” to my number here.

How Many Days Do You Need to Visit Savannah?

We went for a business trip and had just three full days.  I was worried that might not be enough time, but I think now it is the perfect time!  You could stretch it to 4-5 days, but three days was sufficient.

The city is adorable, quiant, and full of flavor.  Let’s explore things to do!

Where to Stay for a Romantic Getaway in Savannah

Any of these options will be fun:

  • JW Marriott on the riverfront.  The riverfront is a must-do in Savannah, so this one gets you close right away.
  • Marshall House.  We learned on our ghost tour this place is known to be haunted.  We heard there are even Yelp reviews about sightings!
  • Mansion on Forsyth Park.  This was our choice for our getaway.  We loved being close to Forsyth Park and still walkable to downtown.  We loved it. Click here to see the current rates.

What To Do in Savannah on Your Getaway

All you really need to do to have a great time in Savannah is to walk around downtown with an open mind and time frame.  You’ll find plenty to see and do!  However, if you want to learn more about the city or have more fun, check out these ideas:

  • Segway Tour of the City.
  • Trolley Bus Tour. This hop-on hop-off tour is perfect for exploring on foot, and on trolley!
  • Ghost and History Tour. We loved Mad Cat Tours and enjoyed our tour guide, Dust! I loved hearing about the history of the city and mixing in some spooky facts.
  • Walk Bonadventure Cemetery. We didn’t make it here, but I wanted to. You can find historic graves and capture some amazing pictures.
  • Bike Tour. Many of the hotels have bikes to use and Savannah by bike is so quaint. If your accommodation does not have bikes available, this is a great affordable option!
  • Shopping downtown.  We loved the Savannah Bee Company! In fact, I’ve ordered online twice more because I love their products so much. My favorite: raw honeycomb with feta!
  • Visit River Street Candy Company.  Amazing! I’ve put this on here twice because it’s worth it. Grab a candy apple or one of the many flavors of praline.

Where To Eat In Savannah

Savannah is a foodie place! We are foodie people. It’s a match. While the food of Savannah is not very gluten-free friendly, it’s delicious and amazing Southern food.

  • Olde Pink House.  A charming old mansion! This place fills up fast. We went right at 5 pm and managed to get into the bar. Be sure to get a reservation if you can. Check out the menu and reserve your table here.
  • Hitch. Our favorites were the waffles and chicken and PB&J chicken wings.
  • Baobab Lounge. Our friends from South Africa took us here and the flavors blew me away.
  • Ciao Bella
  • The Collins Quarter. Reserve your table here.

Enjoy your time in Savannah! We loved it and can’t wait to go back!

  • Skyscanner.  We love the “anywhere” feature to see where it is cheap to fly to.
  • Kiwi.com. They will arrange the cheapest connection, which may mean a few different airlines.  However, if flights change, they will find you a solution!
  • Expedia.  Since we fly so many different airlines, we love the Expedia points we can earn.  We also get better deals the more we book through them.
  • Other platforms we like: Priceline, Aviasales, Hopper, and Travelocity.




As a large, full-time traveling family, travel insurance is a must for us. It’s always a good idea to have travel insurance in case something goes wrong. With the unpredictable state of the world, it is more important now than ever.
We love World Nomads for our travel insurance. They provide travel insurance to travelers from over 130 countries and have many policy options to fit your needs. World Nomads allows you to add multiple destinations to your plan, so it is great for those always on the move. (Coverage may not be available for residents of all countries, states, or provinces. Be sure to carefully read your policy wording for a full description of coverage

We also love Travel Insurance Masters. They offer a wide selection of plans to suit every traveler. They work only with reputable insurance providers and recommend the best plan for a traveler’s specific trip, and offer side-by-side comparisons of a multitude of plans all in one place. Their smart algorithm and filters make requesting a quote and purchasing travel insurance easier than ever.

Tip: If you are making an online purchase (airline tickets, hotels, clothing…basically anything you can imagine) be sure you are using Rakuten! You can either download the app if you are shopping on mobile, or open a browser on a desktop. You then type in the store you are looking to shop at (ie: hotels.com, amazon.com) and shop like normal. The only catch…you get money back! Each store is different, but you can get anywhere from 2%-35% cashback on every purchase! For us, it’s a no-brainer. We are shopping anyways, might as well get some money back!
