This week I am sharing our family vacation to Savannah, Georgia and Hilton Head, South Carolina. Be sure to tune into the blog everyday because there will be a new vacation post very day this week!
When it comes to visiting new cities, I get super excited and want to see everything on the first day, so on our first day in Savannah we did tons of things. Savannah is known for it’s river walk, historical sites, downtown parks that occur every few blocks, and nightlife (not our thing).
I was the most excited to see the river walk, but found it to be a little disappointing. It was huge and had tons of cute shops, candy stores, and restaurants lining it but it wasn’t nearly as pretty as I expected. The parks, however, surpassed my expectations. Every three or so blocks in the downtown area an entire block is dedicated to garden style parks all of which are perfectly manicured with beautiful plants and have huge dreamy trees growing everywhere. I seriously could walk from park to park all day and be content!
We don’t get too excited about museums, but decided since we were in a historical city we should visit a few. We chose the Telfair Museums, which is composed of three unique museums. The first day we visited the Owens-Thomas House, which is a historical house that has been preserved with much of the original materials intact. The mansion was interesting, but the beautiful geometric garden stole the show. It was gorgeous, yet still quaint and manageable, so of course it had me dreaming of a geometric garden for our next house. We also went into the cathedral, which was indescribably beautiful.
For the day I wanted to wear something that was a bit dressy, but still practical for walking all over the city. The skater skirt with a simple blouse and my favorite white sandals were a great pick for a day of exploring.
