The Bohemian Hotel: This is located on Riverstreet. Take the elevator to the top floor for Rocks on the River. It’s a great rooftop bar that overlooks the river. It gets packed, but the drinks & views are not to be missed!
River Street Sweets: RSS is the original Savannah praline! Ellen worked here during high school and the pralines and salt water taffy are divine.
Clary’s Cafe – And easy walk (and a recommended one) to a solid Savannah staple. Breakfast basics and homemade pastries made this place a perfect spot for a free period during high school for Ellen.
Soho South Cafe – Yummy, yummy grilled cheese and shrimp & grits and an eclectic art collection. Best sweet tea with fresh mint – and so cute. They have a new bar that’s worth the trip as well.
Savannah Squares – Walk through them, look at the various sculptures and monuments.
Colonial Park Cemetery – Sherman’s soldiers rubbed off dates and names, and knocked over tomb stones, that can now be found nailed to the brick wall in the back of the cemetery. Supposedly the most haunted cemetery in Georgia.
Bonaventure Cemetery (East of Downtown) – I know. Another cemetery? Yes. This place is on the water, the tombstones are old, azaleas are everywhere, and it’s on the bluff. This is also where Michael proposed.It’s located in Thunderbolt about 10 minutes from downtown.
