5 Tips for a Romantic Weekend in Savannah

Savannah is no stranger to romance. With its gorgeous parks, horse-drawn carriages, and live oak trees draped with Spanish moss, the small city oozes character and charm. To experience it for yourself, grab someone special and check out these five places for yourself.

1) Stroll through Forsyth Park

There are dozens of beautiful parks in Savannah, but Forsyth is among the best known.  The 30-acre park was created in the 1840s and contains walking paths, a café, and a Fragrant Garden for the blind. Stroll through or have a picnic and feel very Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

2) Take a horse-drawn-carriage tour

Ride through Savannah’s tree-lined streets in an elegant horse-drawn carriage. There are several companies to choose from, but we recommend Savannah Carriage Tours. They offer a “Romance Tour” and a “Moonlight and Roses Tour” for lovebirds seeking old-school charm.

3) Have dinner at a Southern Mansion

What better place to have dinner in Savannah than a beautiful southern mansion from the early 1900s? Elizabeth on 37th is an award-winning restaurant serving seasonal, Southern-inspired food. They also have a fantastic wine list and excellent service. Bring on the seersucker suits.

4) Enjoy a drink in a warehouse

Located in what was once a basement grain warehouse built in 1885, Alligator Soul is a cozy restaurant offering fantastic farm-to-table Southern cuisine in a unique and romantic atmosphere. They have an extensive wine list, a large offering of bourbons and whiskies, and some excellent modern cocktails. As a local might say, what’s more romantic than alligator?

5) Pay a visit to local ghosts

Cuddle up to your significant other at one of Savannah’s “haunted” historical sites. Tormented souls from days past are said to haunt various mansions, pubs, and inns around town. Check out Bonaventure Cemetery with its gothic tombstones and the statue of Little Gracie Watson, who died in 1889 and is said to cry real tears on occasion.
