Sweep your Valentine off their feet with a grand romantic gesture - a Savannah getaway. Beautiful architecture, pristine squares and Southern charm provide the perfect backdrop.
A Carriage Ride
Get taken away by the gentle sway of a carriage and “clip clop” of the horses with Carriage Tours of Savannah. The company offers private tours ideal for couples. Drivers can provide historical anecdotes or quietly ride through Savannah’s gorgeous streets.
Picnic in the Park
Pack up a basket with fruit, cheeses, crackers, and wine for the timeless romance of a picnic in one of Savannah’s parks or squares. The gazebo in Whitefield Square makes a gorgeous setting, as do the iconic fountains at Forsyth Park and Lafayette Square.
Stroll the Squares
Speaking of squares, Savannah has 22 where couples can walk hand-in-hand on cobblestone sidewalks shaded by magnificent Live oak trees. Each one has its own charm, many surrounded by restaurants, shops and historic sites.
Share a Malt
From Reynolds or Oglethorpe squares, it’s a short walk to Leopold’s Ice Cream, a Savannah staple since 1919. Order one drink with two straws. Patrons get their choice of chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, cherry, or create a special blend just for the occasion.
Taste the Wine
The Georgia Tasting Room, 306 W. Saint Julian St., offers tastings featuring Southeast regional wines. 208 Wine Bar, 208 E. Bay St., has more than 60 wines available by glass. Ask about guided wine tastings.
Smell the Flowers
Admire the Art
Check out the rotating exhibitions at the SCAD Museum of Art, 601 Turner Blvd. This premier contemporary art museum features emerging and established international artists.
Cruise the River
Take your love on a two-hour Valentines Day Dinner Cruise aboard a riverboat. Enjoy a four-course dinner, live entertainment, bottle of wine or champagne, and dancing.
