We’re going to slow down the pace with this week’s wedding blog honeymoon destination, taking you to a place where a whole lot of history and a hint of mystery perpetually hang in the air– Savannah, GA. Brimming with southern charm and old-fashioned hospitality, you will see why Savannah is one of the most popular romantic destinations in the world for wedding planning and honeymoons.
For those of you who will get enough of a heart-pounding, adrenaline rush just walking down the aisle, Savannah is the perfect place to relax and unwind on your honeymoon. You will find no white water rapids to conquer; only sunset strolls through the tree-lined city squares. No rock walls or mountain trails here; the only thing there is to climb is the stairs to the wrap-around porch of a Victorian mansion.
Savannah’s newest ultra-luxurious hotel, The Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront, is centrally located downtown on historic River Street. You’ll have easy access to the heart of Savannah: boutiques, art galleries, museums and some of the finest restaurants in the world, serving the best of southern cuisine (a favorite of ours here at the wedding blog!). If you don’t want to wait in line for a table at Paula Deen’s The Lady and Sons, try the champagne brunch at Belford’s.
It won’t take long to notice that amazing architecture abounds in Savannah including historic homes, cathedrals, and cemeteries. I recommend a guided tour of the city by day, and a spooky graveyard tour by night. There’s no better way to get a taste of the architectural eye candy Savannah’s streets have to offer!
If you can just taste the sweet tea and cornbread now, please visit the Savannah Area Convention and Visitors Bureau’s website for more information on Savannah, GA.
Do you have other ideas of things to do in Savannah that I didnâ€™t include in this wedding blog? What about another honeymoon destination that you would recommend sharing? I would love to hear from you with input on your preferred destination, and photos are definitely encouraged!
