Best of: Savannah, Georgia

Savannah and Tybee Island

Georgia

02.16.12 – 02.19.12

Residence Inn Savannah Downtown/Historic District

We first stepped foot in Savannah in July of 2008.  We arrived late at night, and spent a few hours the next morning wandering around River Street and visiting The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.  We continued on to Hilton Head Island, which was our final destination, but we couldn’t stop thinking about Savannah ever since.  There’s something so charming and romantic about a city whose streets are lined with oak trees draped with Spanish moss.  Although we are not usually the kind of couple who celebrates Valentine’s Day, we decided to drive to the Georgia coast for a long weekend in mid-February of 2012.  We used our Marriott Rewards Certificates to stay in downtown Savannah.  On this trip we took our time learning about its historic squares, strolled down to Forsyth Park, and stopped by the vast Bonaventure Cemetery to see old and intriguing grave markers and crypts.  We also had an interesting lunch at the Pirates’ House, which is adjoined to a small building that is believed to be the oldest house in Georgia.  And since Tybee Island is only a short drive away from Savannah, we used this opportunity to check out the Tybee Island Light Station and Fort Pulaski National Monument.

  1. I love Savannah as well! I’ve been twice and can’t wait to go back, even though I have to come from CA! Great pictures!

•Video link on bio• If you love to watch the movie A Christmas Story, you will thoroughly enjoy this short video I’ve put together. This video documents our tour through the house recreating our favorite scenes from the movie and follows us through the museum where actual costumes and props are housed. It was definitely the highlight of my trip to Cleveland!
Last Sunday was the perfect fall day to roam around the forests deep in the heart of South Carolina.
How much have we lost in the name of “progress?” Large portions of the southeastern region of the United States used to be covered with floodplain forests. Overtime trees were cut to build ships, railroads, and various other structures. The floodplains were drained to make way for farms and cities. What little still remains is nowadays protected within entities such as the Congaree National Park.

I was hoping to find some peace and quiet at Berry College’s vast campus. Instead, so many people took advantage of Saturday’s beautiful weather. We saw three quinceanera celebrations, a wedding, and various people doing random photo shoots.
Forever rooting for the #ClemsonTigers
