Not too long ago, for my spring break, I was able to visit some friends in Jacksonville and we took a day trip to Savannah, GA, which, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know I absolutely love to take every chance I get to visit there!
I fall in love all over again every time I visit Savannah and there are a handful of things that I try to do while I’m up there, so I thought I would share them with you along with some other fun places I visited this past time I was up there! One thing that I really love about Savannah is that most things are within a 10-15 minute walking distance, so you’re always really close to everything and, although quaint, I feel there is more to explore every time I end up there!
First things first, you HAVE to stop by this cafe for the best waffles ever!
Normally, when I am able to visit Savannah, I get there early in the morning so that I am able to have a full day there and I ALWAYS head on over to Mirabelle’s for some of the best waffles I have ever tasted. This cafe is situated right across the street from a gorgeous cathedral and the atmosphere inside is really cutest/eclectic too, so that makes it all the more fun to visit!
Next up we took a walk inside the West Elm Outlet that is right down the street. Because I have been on this home goods buying frenzy, I have loved looking to higher-end home stores for styling inspiration and West Elm has been on the top of that list. Most of the time I just browse their products online because I don’t have a store close to me, but it was a dream to see all of the super eclectic/minimalistic
Also, this is me on a plate. Fashionable cat lady.
Right after this, I led us down to Broughton St, where there are more retail shops mixed in with more mom and pop/local stores, to visit one of the Savannah Bee Company locations. They had the cutest little play area for kids, honey tasting (have you ever heard of chocolate honey!?!? It’s amazing!), and the way all of the honey glows when the sun hits it is such a gorgeous sight to see.
I love visiting the Paris Market because of how luxe everything inside seems to be. The way they display all of their items makes it more of an experience than just feeling like you’re walking into any other retail space, I feel as though I am walking through a life-sized dollhouse. They also have a cafe inside, with a seating area, but I have yet to try it out. Maybe next time!
For a late lunch, we stopped at The District Cafe and Eatery, where they had wonderful paninis! This was my first time ever eating there and I had a wonderful experience. There menu is also pretty decently priced!
Last but not least the place you MUST make a stop to is Savannah River Street Sweets and unfortunately I don’t have any photos from inside because I was so invested in getting samples… They make pralines on site and they are some of the best! They sell all of the candies you can think of, homemade fudge, cookies, etc., and they even have a small section of the store dedicated to ice cream! I would say to be very careful not to go in there when you’re hungry, it could be dangerous!
I loved getting to share with you about where I’ve been in Savannah, I hope you enjoyed! If there are any recommendations you have about places to visit, whether in Savannah or not, I’d love to hear them! Just leave them in the comments below!
