Last week, we began building a romantic road trip to Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia for your road trip planner. In case you missed it, here’s the link to Southern Hospitality in Charleston and Savannah Road Trip - Part 1, which highlighted the things to do in Charleston.
But now it's time to head to the second city on your growing itinerary, Savannah!
Many people use the word "genteel" to describe Savannah. The word means refined, elegant and stylish, all adjectives that describe the city well, from the Savannah River to the seaside resorts to the 2 1/2 square mile Historic District. And though I'm sure you could find a horse-drawn carriage to draw you into the past, Savannah is considered one of the Top 10 cities for walking tours.
Fellow traveler, Gary Aldrich, gave Savannah 5-stars, praising "A wonderful Old-South getaway! I went with my best friend during a period of intense professional stress and by the end of our few days there, I was relaxed enough to return to work. The restaurants are wonderful, and the charming old houses and well-kept park squares are unlike anything else in the country. Being on a river and near the coast keeps it very mild, even in winter. Coastal Georgia is indeed a wonderful winter respite. I highly recommend it, especially when others are in such a mad rush to get to Florida!" His top picks were Comfort Suites Historic District, Old Pink House Restaurant, and the Squares of Savannah in the Historic District.
In addition to the Squares of Savannah (in case visiting 21 squares isn't enough), Savannah also has other distinct points of interest, so make sure one of these activities gets added to your road trip planner.
So there you have it, two southern cities filled to the brim with charm and hospitality. With that kind of atmosphere surrounding you 24/7, it's no wonder romance fills the air and delights the senses. Every couple should add these cities to the Road Trip Planner because every relationship could use a bit of spice now and then.
