Savannah, GA – Girls Trip St. Patty’s Day Edition
“Savannah oh na na, half of my heart is in Savannah oh na na. He took my back to East Atlanta oh na na. But my heart is in Savannah.”
(That was my own remix to Havana x Camila Cabello)
Savannah is literally one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The landscape of the city and the architecture of the buildings really did have a true southern charm to it that is unmatched from any other southern city I visited. Since moving to Georgia all I ever heard was that I had to visit Savannah, especially for St. Patrick’s Day because it was quite the experience. I haven’t been to Savannah and I love any excuse to take a girl’s trip so I said why not combine the two.
We ended up staying downtown in the historic district where all of the festivities took place. But let me tell you. Parking was horrendous!!!! I never had issues parking ever like I did in Savannah on that Friday afternoon. The AirBNB was nice but it didn’t have any parking that we could use so that was a bummer. Friday we ended up have a themed camouflage night and went to dinner and out for drinks. Nothing too much because we all traveled on Friday and we knew Saturday was going to be a full day.
Saturday, St. Patrick’s Day, was crazyyyyyyyy! It was easily comparable to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. People were already in the streets parading around at 8am. The real parade wasn’t until about 10am and it lasted til about 3pm. It was the longest parade ever. I never seen anything like it. Normally in Savannah you can drink on the streets and walk around but during St. Patrick’s Day you had to buy a $10 wristband to drink downtown. So we bought our wristbands and had a ball. We were participating in the festivities all day! Celebrating, walking, sightseeing, eating, and drink green mimosas. Having good ole fashion girl time.
Sunday, we were recuperating from all of the festivities. We had to check out of our AirBnB early because they were shutting off the water Sunday-Monday. It was five girls and 2 bathrooms. We needed water. So we checked into the Embassy Suites hotel up the street still in the Savannah Historic District. We tried to visit Wormsloe but it closed at 5pm, so we went to Forsyth Park, instead. It was gorgeous! The pictures did not do it justice. Afterwards, we went to dinner at a nice Italian restaurant. ( I will discuss food details on a different post) Later on that night we went out for drinks and ended up at a bar called Bomey’s. Bomey’s was the icing on the cake to a lovely girl’s trip.
Monday we departed, and went back to our normal lives! Ughhh I am already past due for another vacation. Please view exclusive pictures below from the highlights of the Savannah trip.
