Hi everyone!! I’ve been working on a post over the last couple of weeks, but I’ve been struggling with it. I do want to have it up before long, but it’s a post that is important to me and I want to be sure that it’s exactly how I want it before it’s posted. In the meantime, I wanted to share a bit about my recent trip to Savannah, Georgia. It was a quick trip to check out a college out there that my sister was looking at, but we also spent some time enjoying the city and surrounding areas. It’s a gorgeous city that I loved, but I do wish it had been cooler. If you ever go to Savannah I highly suggest going in the Fall because it was hard to truly enjoy it due to the heat. There’s a lot more there then I realized, but I thought I’d share a few of the things we did while there.
If you’re going to a city as gorgeous and historical as Savannah then you should really take some time just to stroll around the city. Our first night in Savannah we spent a while just walking around looking at all the historical buildings, and fantastic views. Once again this is something that would be better in the Fall because it was hot out, but it was enjoyable just to walk around and view the city.
If you like stories about haunted places or ghosts then Savannah is the place to go. It’s covered in history and many places claim to be haunted such as the house in the pictures above. My sister and I love watching Buzzfeed Unsolved, and the house in this picture, the Sorrel Weed house, was featured on the show. It holds the stories of several who suffered in the house, and as we stood outside looking at the house we saw plenty of ghost tours making their way to or around the house. Sorrel Weed is only one of the many spooky places located in Savannah though. Between the old houses, old cemeteries, parks, and more this city has a lot of history that maybe hasn’t quite left yet. I’d definitely love to go back, and do some ghost tours. I don’t know whether or not I believe in ghosts, but I sure do love the historical stories that go with the ghosts.
I love checking out different coffee shops when I visit different places, and I was especially excited to go to The Coffee Fox. I always research before I go somewhere to have some ideas of one’s to look for, and when I saw this one it immediately became the one that I HAD to go to. First, so many people were recommending it so I knew that it had to be pretty good. Second, it has two of my favorite things in it’s name. I love coffee and one of my favorite animals is the fox. It’s a cute place, and it was busy but they got people through quickly. I ordered an Americano, and it was so lovely. This coffee shop is definitely one of my top favorites on my list. I really wish I lived closer so I could go more often.
I’m such a history nerd so checking out the city was amazing, but I also loved visiting Fort Pulaski. It was built sometime in the 1840’s, and it’s still standing strong. It’s amazing to me the things the builders thought of when building this fort especially because they didn’t have the technology that we have now. It was also nice because this was one of the few places where it wasn’t overly hot because there was a breeze. I’ve also heard some interesting ghost stories about this place as well, which makes me really wish I could see it at night. I definitely wouldn’t want to be there by myself at night, but I’d definitely go with a group.
Lastly, we went to Tybee Island to check out the beach. It’s definitely not my favorite beach, and it really made me miss Ormond. It was fun to go see though, and it was nice just to step on a beach again. The area we visited was packed full with people, and it was about to storm so we didn’t stay long. It was cool that it seems they rented out tents and chairs though. That way you don’t have to carry everything down there when you go.
Overall, it was a great weekend trip with my dad and sister. We had fun checking out the city and soaking up all the history. I definitely want to go back in the Fall so that I can see more of the city. I highly recommend this city to people who love beautiful old cities, history, ghost stories, or for people who just like traveling. Have any of you been to Savannah? If so, what was your favorite part? I’d love to hear from you so be sure to comment below! Hope you’re all doing well! See you next time!!
