Planning a bachelorette party, friend’s birthday, or college reunion? A Savannah Girlfriend Getaway is perfect for a bestie celebration!
The first step in planning is to choose a Savannah vacation rental that puts you right in the center of it all. How about a loft in the heart of downtown, an historic rental near Forsyth Park or a garden apartment facing Monterey Square?
Once you have the perfect rental booked, it’s time to plan the rest of your stay. Start your day strolling the Historic District and browsing the many shops and boutiques of City Market, Broughton Street and River Street. You’ll find clothes, jewelry, hat shops, gifts, recycled clothing, home decor and more.
With all that shopping, you’ll work up an appetite, so reserve a spot to enjoy afternoon tea. Try Gryphon on Bull Street, which offers tea sandwiches, scones, assorted pastries and petit fours with their tea selections. The Savannah Tea Room is a lovely spot to sip your favorite, while Pie Society is a traditional European cafe serving delicious British favorites with their afternoon tea.
And, because this trip is all about indulging, end the afternoon with a wine tasting at a spot like In Vino Veritas wine bar with about 40 by-the-glass options or the Georgia Tasting Room, with its fun atmosphere for sampling regional wines.
When it’s time to decide on dinner, head over to the Lady and Sons, (Paula Dean’s restaurant) which offers a buffet, as well as tried-and-true Southern favorites like shrimp and grits, chicken pot pie and fried chicken. Or enjoy delicious Lowcountry cuisine at the Olde Pink House Restaurant, a lovely spot with excellent service. Another upscale restaurant is Garibaldi’s Cafe, which makes a beautiful place for a celebration. The ambience, food and service get rave reviews.
Now, call your best girlfriends and pack those bags. It’s time to plan a unique girlfriend getaway in Savannah.
