Following on from our exploration of a future visit to Charleston, we want to continue to find places to visit through the south of the United States. Another gem situated three hours outside of Atlanta is Savannah. Famous for live oaks dripping with Spanish Moss, many stately mansions from the eighteenth and nineteenth century. Savannah is a little bit more adventurous than Charleston, it was founded in 1733 by British colonists, the city contains famous town squares and tonnes of green spaces amongst the historic statues and memorials.
We want to stay at the Kimpton Brice
With our US office located in Austin, Texas, we have experienced the fantastic Kimpton range of hotels. The Kimpton Brice in Savannah, seems like a real winner. The hotel is located on River and Bay street a short walk from cafes, galleries and the many manors and scenic squares, yet slightly tucked away so you can have your privacy. Consisting of 145 rooms, the hotel has beautiful spiral staircases, secret gardens and also a pool. The rooms all consist of brass-poster beds and have great decor.
We want to eat and drink at The Old Pink House and the Collins quarter
Given you’d be in the South while visiting Savannah, we’d really like to grab some traditional Southern food with big plates and great service. The best place for this looks like The Olde Pink House. Set in a Georgian Mansion from 1771, the restaurant serves up classic southern cuisine and is also a popular destination for Savannah ghost hunters.
Again, like Charleston, it won’t be easy to find a good flat white in Savannah, however, it seems like the Collins Quarter restaurant in Savannah does. Styled after Melbourne’s Collins district, this cafe has speciality coffee with innovative cuisine, serving farm to table fare.
We want to workout at Alvins Gym
In line with the rest of our places to visit, we love old school workouts, and Alvin’s gym in Savannah is no different. The gym has old school weights and machine and is a classic gym which we’d love to visit.
We want to visit and see Riverstreet and Tybee island
If staying at the Kimpton Brice, you’d be close to Riverstreet. Which is the classic waterfront of Savannah and we’d want to visit it to take in the sights and enjoy the historic district.
Savannah can get very hot, and if you want to take in a beach there is a great option in Tybee island very close to Savannah. Tybee is a barrier island with wide and sandy beaches and we’d love to go to enjoy the sun and hot weather
