Savannah, Georgia Travel Guide

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!

XOXO, Tayler

  1. Tybee Island does get pretty busy. I have found that the earlier you get there, you can miss most of the crowds. When you have more time, you should visit Forsyth Park. The park is nice and there is a lot of historic buildings surrounding it.
