Savannah in Pictures

Let’s get the first thing out of the way: Yes, Savannah in June and July is H-O-T. To my fellow Marylanders: the humidity in our area ain’t nothing compared to the humidity in the South. It blows ours away. If your hair is anything like mine, you can count on it being out of control during a summer tour of Savannah, Georgia. In fact, one hair stylist, upon seeing the condition of my hair, recommended that I get a Brazilian blowout.

Speaking of tours, we thoroughly enjoyed our two-hour walking tour with Savannah Dan. He’s theatrical and full of knowledge about the history of his city. You’ll learn all about the squares, the ghosts of Savannah, and why The Olde Pink House is pink (yes, there’s a story there). We enjoyed a tour of the Owens-Thomas House with a lovely docent from the U.K.

The highlight of our daughter’s visit to Savannah was playing the piano in the piano bar at The Olde Pink House. In between the pianist’s sets, my daughter was invited to play the pianoβ€”and she received a big applause from the crowd and lots of encouragement from the musicians in the place. It was a real thrill for her, and one she won’t soon forget.

As far as the food goes, you will not be disappointed. Savannah was ranked one of the Top 17 cities for food by Zagat in 2015. You won’t want to miss out on some good old fashioned cheesy shrimp and grits, and Leopold’s Ice Cream was ranked in the Top 5 in the world by the Tribune Media Service.

The streets are charming, as you will see in my photographs. If you enjoy touring tree-lined streets with Spanish moss, a beautiful, historic waterfront, and picturesque park squares filled with American history, Savannah just may be your next destination.

I’ll stop writing now and just show you SAVANNAH IN PICTURES.

  1. What is it about Spanish moss that makes things so appealing? When you think about it, it is just hanging fungus…like mushrooms! Beautiful photos…Mom

  2. Beautiful! I’m getting married there this Dec. on the porch of a B&B. Cannot wait to have the natural beauty of the city as a backdrop to the big day. Glad you enjoyed your trip.
