Savannah, Georgia is a charming southern escape full of history, trendy boutiques, and tasty food!
This month we celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary! We wanted to take the time to slow down and celebrate with each other and not let this one just pass us by. With just a couple days to escape, we landed on Savannah and enjoyed every second.
Here's a small list of musts:
The Perry Lane Hotel
The Perry Lane Hotel was the highlight of our visit to Savannah. They offer their guests a refreshed take on luxury and a genuine taste of Southern warmth. In addition, they've composed a collection of luxurious products and services that transcend the everyday, to help you truly savor every moment of your stay in downtown Savannah. Each day, enjoy complimentary Veuve Clicquot, coffee, bikes, and a house car. The hotel also offers a complimentary craft cocktail nightly at their in house cocktail bar, the Wayward, where they take a modern approach to hand-crafted cocktails, The Wayward offers a fresh take on the local watering hole.
Also found on property, bursting with vibrant energy, The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market is a local gathering place boasting approachable, curated, and highly-diverse offerings. We enjoyed an after dinner cocktail here our first night. It's situated right off the coffee bar - which by the way, has a delicious lemon poppyseed cookie!
And lastly, featuring exquisite views of Savannah, premium cocktails, a curated wine list and fresh locally inspired dishes, Peregrin is modern sophistication at its best. From tropical plants and a tranquil year-round pool, Peregrin is the Perry's Rooftop Bar. Experience swanky rooftop vibes, without the pomp and circumstance.

Like a well-curated Parisian flea market, The Paris Market is a vision of intriguing and unforgettable treasures. Founded in 2001 by Paula and Taras Danyluk, the two-level, 5,200-square-foot Savannah boutique is housed in an 1874 Victorian building originally built as a grocery store, which they lovingly restored to its old-world splendor. The pair travels the globe to source unique and fantastical pieces, both big and small, modern and antique: from hand-crafted jewelry and accessories to custom-made lighting, French-milled soaps to hard-to-come-by kitchen tools. A charming corner of the store offers wares and gifts just for children and an expansive section of books and magazines is devoted to art, design, food and travel. Tables are set with all the accoutrements for the perfect dinner party, while daybeds are dressed in layers of luxurious linens and throw pillows.
