Throwback: A humid summer weekend in Savannah, Georgia

In case you couldn’t tell, I’m already dreaming of summer. It’s been very cold and rainy here in Florida (cold by Florida standards, I know that it’s *technically* colder in other states!!) and I can’t wait for the warmer months. Here’s a throwback to last summer, when I spent a weekend in Savannah, Georgia, and never wrote about it… whoops.

Savannah is about a 2-hour drive north of Jacksonville and was incredibly hot, but still incredibly fun in summer. There’s so much to do, from riding the steamboat; to shopping on the Waterfront; to going on a ghost or historical architecture tour; to roaming among the dead at the Bonaventure cemetery.

I haven’t included my personal thoughts about each of these experiences and will instead let the photos do the talking, but I highly recommend everything listed above and photographed below! I’ve included links to various websites in case you want to learn more information about any of these experiences as well.

I 100% recommend a visit to Savannah and am, personally, hoping to visit again sometime this year because I didn’t get to do everything that I wanted to do on this trip. I can imagine that Savannah is especially fun for adults because there’s lots of bars and speakeasies to go to – it’s a popular spot for bachelorette/bachelor parties. But, I can imagine that it’s also fun for families who enjoy history and exploring.

Without further ado, here is a weekend in Savannah, in photos:
