This Mother’s Day, treat your mom to a Savannah getaway (and just so you know, it’s May 12).
Start by booking a lovely carriage house or cottage with Southern Belle Vacation Rentals. Our properties are located in the area’s most desirable locations, and are stocked with everything you’ll need for a comfortable and relaxing vacation.
Old Savannah Trolley Tour
If this is your mother’s first time in the city, take her on an Old Savannah Trolley Tour. It’s a great way to acclimate yourself to the historic district with on/off options so you can take time to explore. These folks have been around since 1979 so they know the history of the area and love to bring it to life for visitors.
Second Saturday Art Walk
Take in the Second Saturday Art Walk starting at 2 p.m. The event is held every second Saturday from September through June, and the May date falls on Mother’s Day weekend. That’s lucky for you, as it’s a free way to experience Savannah’s art scene. Start with complimentary cocktails at The Hyatt Hotel at 2 p.m. where you’ll receive a map and meet sponsoring artists. The Art Walk includes more than two dozen galleries and goes until 6 p.m. where you can end up at The DeSoto Hotel for more beverages and a raffle.
For dinner, take mom to a festive celebration at one of the elegant historic downtown restaurants like Garibaldi Cafe or Vic’s on the River. You don’t have to dress up at either place, but feel free to do so if your mom prefers. Mother’s Day is, after all, a special occasion.
Garibaldi’s offers an amazing menu with soups, salads, seafood, pasta and a raw and steamed oyster bar. It’s great food served by friendly staff in a beautiful setting. What’s not to love about that? Vic’s on the River features Southern coastal cuisine. Make reservations and enjoy their award-winning crawfish beignets, grouper tacos, or a fried green tomato sandwich.
For a delicious Mother’s Day brunch, try B. Matthews Eatery, for shrimp & grits, quiche or a veggie scramble. Or savor a Belgian waffle topped with fresh fruit at Mirabelle Café. Down a seasonal coffee drink while sitting at the outdoor patio.
Enjoy your Mother’s Day weekend in a beautiful city with delicious food, art, and history. And when you book your accommodations with Southern Belle Vacation Rentals, we take care of everything so Mom
