Savannah is located in Georgia, Southern United States.  It is one of the most historic and old cities in the country.

Where you can find great parks, tree lined streets, monuments, unique architecture and delicious cuisine.

We always wanted to go on a road trip deep into the South, and we finally decided to do it.

Here’s our road trip itinerary to visiting Savannah, Georgia: 

Check out Wormsloe Historic Site:

It is one the oldest plantations in the country.  There is a tree-lined drive, which makes it look like a tunnel along the dirt road.  There is also a museum dedicated to the history of the property, which was once a mansion.



While in Savannah we could see most of the city in a weekend.

We stayed at the Mansion on Forsyth Park, Autograph Collection, an autograph collection hotel.  It is one of the most famous hotels in the city.
