Looking for a fun place to travel to for a bachelorette? Or maybe just a girl’s trip for a long weekend? I highly recommend heading south to visit Savannah, GA. I just got back from my best friend’s bachelorette and had a blast! This was the second time I visited this gorgeous city and I just can’t seem to get enough of it! If it weren’t for its haunted past (yup, it’s the most haunted city in the US) I probably wouldn’t think twice about moving there. Oh and there is no open container law either! Perfect for a bachelorette weekend.
Here is a list of fun activities and places to eat based off the bachelorette weekend I just attended. Also, check out my Savannah travel guide from a few years back (here). It’s loaded with plenty of amazing restaurants and other fun activities.
The Bohemian Rooftop – This rooftop is located on the riverfront so there is an amazing view of the water. It’s also pretty big too, but does get crowded fast so make sure you get there early.
The Perch Rooftop – This is a small rooftop with cute lounge areas. It’s a great place to grab a drink before heading out for dinner.
Peregrin at the Perry Lane Hotel – This place has fun cocktails and outdoor games like corn hole and Foosball.
Savannah Smiles Dueling Pianos – If you’re looking for live music at night, this is the place to be. Two people play covers of songs all night long and it’s a lot of fun. Especially for a big group to go out to.
Jen’s & Friends – This bar is a must! They have over 300 types of martinis that all taste like candy. My favorite is the Reese’s one. Make sure to get their early though, this bar is on the smaller side.
Saddle Bags – This bar is a lot of fun. They have a mechanical bull and a ton of line dancing that everyone gets really in to.
Places to Eat:
The Collin’s Quarter – This cute café has a walk-up coffee window to grab coffees to go or you can dine. They have a ton of unique coffee drinks and there is always a wait to eat brunch, but it’s worth it!
Huey’s On the River – This restaurant is located on the riverfront and great for brunch. Make sure you check in on Yelp when you are there so you can get a free beignet!
The Olde Pink House – This was easily the best meal I had on the trip. We got dressed up, took some cute pics outside, and enjoyed a delicious meal.
Savannah Wine Cellar – This cute little wine store allows you to spend up to 2 hours hanging out and sampling their wines. You receive a card that you stick into a machine, pick the wine you want to sample (1oz, 2oz, or 3oz servings), and then pay at the end based on how much you drank. This is a great activity to do if it’s just a couple friends or a large group.
Blue Orb Ghost Tour – If you’re up to hear local stories on why Savannah is the most haunted city in the US, then this is the tour for you! We did the Zombie tour that starts at 10pm and goes until 12am. The guide will walk you around and share stories about how many of the locations downtown are haunted. I personally find this very interesting, but if you get scared easily by ghost stories I would maybe skip this activity.
Tybee Island – If you have the time, Uber out to Tybee Island and spend some time at the beautiful beach.
If you’ve been to Savannah, what fun things did you do?
