Whether you book a weekend getaway as a Mother's Day treat or for some Mother/Daughter bonding time, Savannah provides an array of boutique shopping, craft cocktails, rooftop dining, and more.
Take a Food Tour
Foodies can sample the region's flavors with Savannah Taste Experience, offering a range of food tours. First Squares is a three-hour culinary adventure featuring decadent Lowcountry fare and unusual eats as you walk oak-lined squares. Or take the two-hour Southern Fried Expectations Food Tour that starts and ends on River Street. You'll enjoy delicious samples at various locations blended with historical tales of the city.
Discover an oasis tucked away in the heart of the Historic District. Book the four-hour Southern Belle's Delight package at Savannah Day Spa. You'll enjoy an aromatherapy body scrub, aromatherapy massage, signature aromatherapy facial, and spa pedicure. They also provide an array of Mother's Day specials, including champagne and a rose body scrub, aromatherapy massage, and their signature facial. Milan Day Spa and Spa Bleu also offer Mother's Day specials and a range of complete spa services. What a lovely way to while away an afternoon!
Stroll and Shop
Shopping along Bull Street is a charming experience with stores like Harper Boutique, E. Shaver Booksellers, and shopSCD. Discover various salts and seasonings at The Salt Table, a couple of blocks away, where "flavor consultants" help you find a truly unique product for your home table. Byrd Cookie Company is another tasty place to shop, and it's located at City Market, where you can browse even more stores offering their wares.
Wine and Dine
While at City Market, take a break from the shopping at The Georgia Tasting Room. The tastings are delicious and affordable at six tastes for $3. Or enjoy a fruity wine smoothie made from your favorite flavor or a blend. However, be forewarned as many wine lovers "go in for a taste and come out with a case." If you prefer your wine with dinner, reserve a table at The Olde Pink House for an appetizing - and quintessential - Savannah experience.
Cocktails with a View
Catch an unobstructed, panoramic view of the Savannah River and downtown from The Drayton Hotel's Rooftop bar. You don't have to be a guest to enjoy the spectacular and upscale rooftop bar. The staff will make you feel right at home with a specialty craft cocktail or something straight-up. The rooftop bar is truly Insta-worthy.
Book a Charming Property
The two-bedroom Thunderbolt Cottage offers views of the Intracoastal Waterway and is within walking distance to local restaurants, marinas, and parks. Coral Cottage also has two queen bedrooms near many of Savannah's most famous landmarks and attractions.
