Historic Savannah Georgia

It's Day 2 of our Spring Break visit to Civil War Sites of Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina. On Day 1, we explored Chattanooga, TN.


On Day 2, we drive 5 hours from Chattanooga to Savannah, GA where we are staying in the historic district. Driving into the city, we pass by the retro Thunderbird Inn (we did not stay here - I thought the property looked cool)

We stayed at a Hampton Inn in the Historic District. The hotel let us check in around noon and then we explored the shops along the river, walking its entire length, enjoying the warm, breezy day. We walked away from the river to Forsyth park and along the way stopped at the site of the alleged Forrest Gump bench. The parks and green spaces in the city serve as natural oasis with towering live oaks, providing welcome cool from the summer swelter. Upon seeing Forsyth park, the famous fountain glistened in the afternoon sun, a beacon at the end of the treed canopy of green flanking the path.

We enjoyed dinner at the incredible Alligator Soul Restaurant. At the time, the restaurant only allowed patrons with reservations. We nabbed the last available time slot, right when they opened for dinner; we normally eat early, so this fit our needs perfectly. I enjoyed this scallop entree:

After dinner we walked the waterfront again in time to catch a beautiful sunset with the Georgia Queen:

It was a wonderful way to end our day.
