While in the Charleston area, my mom and I decided to check out Savannah, Georgia for a quick day trip. Savannah is definitely similar to Charleston with its charm and southern hospitality. Again, so much history with this city and such a home-y feel. Here’s everything we did in our short time in Savannah!

Wormsloe Historic Site: This beautiful site is lined with Oak trees down the driveway. It’s like walking or driving through a part of history. The trees are truly breathtaking and there are trails you can walk through at the end of the drive to admire the old buildings on the property. A must-see for Savannah.
Chippewa Square: This quaint park was used as a filming location for the ever-so-famous Forest Gump where he sits on the bench. Besides that cool fact, it’s a beautiful park to check out and same with the area around it.
Jones Street: This historic street is located a couple blocks away from Chippewa Square and a street to check out. Kind of similar to the Rainbow Row in Charleston, there are pastel, historic houses to marvel at.
Tybee Island: I had this beach on our list of places to check out in the Savannah area but I don’t think I’d recommend it. It’s a very touristy area and a pretty busy beach. I liked the Isle of Palms in Charleston a lot more than this beach in Savannah.

That’s everything we saw for our quick trip to Savannah and of course we had to grab Chic-fil-a to-go on the way back. All in all, a fun little getaway from the big city of Charleston. If you have any questions about our visit, feel free to leave them below!
