Day Trip To Savannah, Ga

I’ve been to Savannah about a million times in my life so far and I’ve never really explored it in depth until yesterday when Morgin and I decided to make it our destination for the day. It is only about an hour and a half away from where we live so it wasn’t a BIG trip but I think it’s important to realize that you can travel to someplace new even in your town and still have a great time! It’s all about the fun and experience not the destination.

The Not So Road Trip

When we got to downtown Savannah (note: make sure you go to downtown Savannah if you visit) there is so much going on and are SO many different places to go. First, we decided to  go to River Street which is a very popular place to go in Savannah and for good reason! River Street is a cobblestone filled street by the Savannah River that is lined with so many shops and restaurants it can be a little overwhelming. We just spent quite a while just strolling down the street and taking the city in, checking out the shops, and just enjoying each others company.

Broughton Street

Up until this trip I have never explored Broughton Street. Walking down this street is like being in 100 places at one time because there is such a huge diversity in the things you can do for instance you can  go shopping in an expensive clothing store then go to a shop with products made from refurbished and recycled materials. You can’t talk about Broughton Street with out mentioning Leopold’s which is one of Savannah’s hottest spots for ice cream. We didn’t get any this trip unfortunately, however Morgin assured me it’s as good as they say and insisted I included it in this post. I really liked and enjoyed exploring the street! I will definitely have to go again. It’s a must go for anyone wanting to really visit Savannah.

Little Parks and BIG Pizza!

After we finished exploring everything we wanted to see on Broughton Street we just started walking without any destination in mind. We ended up in a little park with a fountain under a canopy of Savannah’s famous huge oak trees, there are several of these little parks all throughout Savannah’s downtown and each one seemed to be different. While walking I loved seeing some of the buildings with vines growing up the side. I don’t know about you but something about the vines one the building just give the place a certain feel and I love it! Around this time we started to get hungry so we decided on this pizza place that Morgin and her family love to go to. The name of the place is Vinnie Van Go Go’s and It might not look like much on the outside but trust me the pizza will blow you away! We got a pepperoni, banana pepper, and sausage pizza and it was absolutely amazing, Oh! and it’s huge as well! We ordered a medium and it was more than the two of us could eat and for less than $20!

All in all it was a really fun and relaxing day well spent. We both had a really great time and can’t wait to go back!If you don’t have Savannah on your list of destinations I’d strongly suggest adding it, I promise you won’t regret it!
