Things to do in Savannah, Georgia : A city Guide

When John and I were looking for a getaway, we knew that the south was one place we could go that would feel like a real vacation where we got to experience life that felt a little different than ours here on the west coast.  We settled on Charleston, SC, but we also knew that being so close to Savannah, GA, we couldn’t pass up a chance to visit that charming city as well.   In a quick 24 hours we saw and did as much as we could.  The horse drawn carriages, and ornate antebellum architecture lining cobblestone streets shaded by oak trees covered in Spanish moss was enough to make my camera go into overdrive.  Savannah is a little less polished than Charleston, but a pretty city and tons of fun in it’s own right.  Here are the things to do in Savannah, Georgia that I would recommend based on our quick visit to this fun city.

Leopold’s Ice Cream

Serving up award-winning, homemade super-premium ice cream, unchanged since 1919, a visit to this historic (and famous) ice cream institution is a must.  Owned by Stratton Leopold, an active member of the Hollywood motion picture community, serving as Producer on films such as Mission Impossible 3, the Sum of All Fears, The General’s Daughter, Paycheck and Parker. Stratton has worked on many other blockbuster hits during his nearly 50 years in the film industry including The Big Chill and John Carpenter’s They Live. Props and posters from these films can be found in the shop today.

The Olde Pink House

Ok, so in my opinion, the food here was expensive, and not necessarily the best…good, but not great.  That being said, I still recommend a visit to this historic restaurant.  Housed in Savannah’s only 18th century mansion, it is one of Savannah’s most popular restaurants.  The setting is beautifully southern–you dine in the gorgeous rooms of the old mansion, and the service is impeccable.  Don’t miss at least stealing a peek at the amazing bar in the basement.
