Savannah Guide




I will be continually adding more to this page! I thought I would share with ya'll my guide to Savannah which includes both touristy and more local things. I have marked the things I know are dog friendly with a DF.

Places to Eat:
Marche De Macarons
Many of you who know me, know that macarons are my favorite sweet treat. These are the best I have ever had! They are always fresh and have seasonal flavors as well.

Little Duck Diner
One of my new favorite restaurants! They have cute twists on classic lunch items and in their drinks they include a little rubber ducky! They have 'fancy' milkshakes and the decor of the restaurant is to die for. It's a modern take on the classic Savannah architecture.

Flying Monk Noodle Bar
I love their Na Na Noodle bowl with shrimp. I cannot say enough good things about this place!

Soho South Café
If you are looking for the perfect Sunday brunch spot, then you have found it. Another favorite, I love dining here while listening to their live pianist. The food is always spot on and the decor is perfect.

Zunzi's
This is a South African themed take-out restaurant. I love it for their unique tea and excellent gluten-free options!
-DF

The Cotton Exchange
One of my favorite places to eat downtown, located on River Street.

The Crab Shack
My family has been coming here for years. I highly recommend the Captain's platter, plus if you go to the 'Gift Shack' here, you may meet some friendly cats.

The Sugar Shack | Tybee
I cannot say enough good things about this place! Although it is small, the food and ice cream are phenomenal. My favorite is their breakfasts and milkshakes.  
-DF

River Street Sweets
This one is a little touristy, but I stop in every time I'm downtown. My favorite thing to get is their Pralines and they usually have samples!

Places to Shop:
The Paris Market
This is the cutest little store ever. They have products from all over the world, gorgeous seasonal decor, beautiful fashion books, and a little bakery as well.

 Courtland and Co
My roomate and I have found some of the best shops stretched along Whitaker street and Courtland and Co is no exception! I love their home decor.

One Fish Two Fish
Another great store on Whitaker is One Fish Two Fish. They have some of the cutest accessories and trinkets!

Savannah City Market
The best part of the City Market is all of the local art galleries.
-DF

Alex Raskin Antiques
One of my favorite Antique stores downtown (although there are many more). They have floors and floors of stunning antique furniture and decor.

Brighter Day Food Market
The best 'hippie' store in Savannah. They have a wide variety of gluten free foods (and many other dietary restrictions) and fresh made smoothies, as well as a lot of unique foods, beauty products, and vitamins.

A Chocolate Dream
I am a huge fan of chocolate! I love this little store located on Broughton Street.

Favorite Coffee Shops:
The Paris Market
I already added this one, however their coffee is phenomenal! I go here for coffee dates with my sister

Savannah Coffee Roasters
Excellent local coffee shop, I highly recommend an iced white chocolate mocha with raspberry syrup. I am not sure if they have a white chocolate mocha on the menu, however they made me one once and it was the best cup of coffee I've ever had.  

Foxy Loxy Cafe
I was looking for a new coffee shop to try recently and found this one. In addition to an interesting selection of coffee drinks, they have tacos and alcoholic drinks.

Mirabelle Cafe & Suites
I recently tried this coffee shop for the first time because of photos I found on Instagram. I absolutely fell in love! They specialize in 'fancy' waffles and also have suites you can stay in above the coffee shop. My favorite drink they had is their basic 'mocha'. If you are also looking for good Instagram spots, this is the place!

Tybean Art and Coffee | Tybee
I have tried a lot of local coffee shops and this is by far the best. They feature local art and have a live-in cat named Bean. I highly recommend trying their scones and their Dirty Chai Latte.

Things to Do:
Telfair Art Museum
For Valentine's Day, my boyfriend buys us yearly passes to this art museum. It is a three part museum: The Telfair, The Jepson, and The Owens-Thomas House. My favorite is the Telfair, which features classic paintings.

Bonaventure Cemetery
This is known as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the world.
-DF

Old Sheldon Church Ruins
Even though it is a little out of the way, this is one of my favorite places to visit! It is so gorgeous, it is frequently used for engagement photos and weddings.
-DF

Forsyth Park
One of my favorite class breaks is to go to Forsyth during the week. Most people recognize it for the fountain, but there are tons of other things around it. The Mansion hotel and Brighter Day that I have linked are right off of Forsyth, as well as a cute little garden and Starbucks coffee shop.
-DF

Fort Pulaski
Located near Tybee, Fort Pulaski is a beautiful national monument. As well as being able to go inside the fort, there are some walking trails along the water and people love bringing their dogs.
-DF 

Places to Stay:
The Mansion
I cannot express how much I love the interior of this hotel. It is gorgeous and located right next to Forsyth Park.

Historic Armstrong House
This hotel is coming soon at the beginning of 2019. It is my favorite building in Savannah, right off of Forsyth Park. This building used to be a Law Firm, before it was recently bought with plans to restore it and turn it into a hotel.

The Bohemian
They have an amazing rooftop bar and are located on Bay Street

Beachview Bed and Breakfast | Tybee
The cutest B&B on Tybee! I toured it during the Tybee tour of homes and fell in love.
